9 - Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line
The MRT Sungai Buloh–Kajang line is the ninth rail transit line and the second fully automated and driverless rail system in the Klang Valley area, Malaysia after the Kelana Jaya Line. It is a part of Greater KL/Klang Valley Integrated Transit System. The line is numbered and coloured Green on official transit maps.
It is one of three planned rail lines under Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit Project by MRT Corp. The Phase 1 between Sungai Buloh and Semantan commenced service on 16 December 2016. Phase 2 between Muzium Negara and Kajang was opened on 17 July 2017, as a free shuttle service, by former Malaysian Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Najib Tun Razak in a ceremony at the Tun Razak Exchange station. Full revenue service between Sungai Buloh and Kajang began the following day.
The line starts from Sungai Buloh which is located to the north-west of Kuala Lumpur, runs through the city centre of Kuala Lumpur, and ends in Kajang, a fast developing town located to the south-east of Kuala Lumpur. The line serves a corridor with an estimated population of 1.2 million people.
Phase One of the MRT Sungai Buloh–Kajang line from Sungai Buloh to Semantan had become operational on 16 December 2016 while Phase Two from Semantan to Kajang had become operational on 17 July 2017, allowing trains to serve the entire line.
Announced in 2006, the line was initially planned as a LRT at 43 km in length, linking the densely populated areas of Damansara in the northwest and Cheras in the southeast, through the central business district of Kuala Lumpur city.The government then decided to extend the alignment at both ends to Sungai Buloh and Kajang respectively, adding 8 km to the line for a total of 51 km. In addition, the line was changed to an MRT system, with higher capacity trains.
The first MRT line covers a span of 51 kilometres from Sungai Buloh to the Kajang, passing the Kuala Lumpur city centre where the alignment goes underground. The line will be serving a corridor with 1.2 million residents within the Klang Valley region from north-west to the south-east of Kuala Lumpur. According to MRT Corp, the four-car train sets with the capacity of 1,200 passengers will be in place to serve some 400,000 passengers per day, with a headway of 3.5 minutes.
Amendments after public display
After the MRT project was formally launched on 8 July 2011, the following amendments have been made to the original proposed alignment following the public display exercise between March and May 2011:-
- 31 stations instead of 35 stations will be built and provisions have been made for 3 more stations
- The proposed Section 17 was dropped
- The location of the proposed TTDI station was moved around 300m southwards to the former Caltex petrol stations. This was due to complaints from Taman Tun Dr Ismail and Damansara Kim residents.
- Bukit Bintang East and West stations have been combined into one, moved and integrated with KL Monorail station. The station was named Bukit Bintang Central Station and subsequently Bukit Bintang Station.
- Park and Ride facilities has been increased to 16 from 13 previously.
- Taman Mesra station has been removed.
- Adjustments to the alignment:
- Shifting alignment into the former Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia land in Sungai Buloh to cater for future development
- Adjusting the alignment adjacent to Bandar Kajang station to avoid going through the town centre and through Kajang Stadium.
The stations announced by MRT Corp on its official website are listed as below in order. The working names of the stations are also shown in this list. 25 (22 elevated and 3 underground) out of 31 stations are provided with the Feeder Bus services.
