The Sungai Buloh railway station is a railway station serving the suburb of Sungai Buloh in Selangor, Malaysia, which is located to the northwest of Kuala Lumpur.

It is an interchange station, with one section catering to the KTM Komuter and KTM ETS services, and another section for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line. The newly built integrated station was opened on 16 December 2016 together with the opening of the first phase of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.[1] The station is the northern terminus of the MRT service.

The Sungai Buloh station is an elevated station structure with a common elevated concourse linking the MRT paid area with the KTM paid area. The integrated station was constructed as part of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line and opened together with the opening of Phase One of the line on 16 December 2016.[2]

The ticket vending machines and ticketing offices for both services, as well as two retail outlets are located at this common concourse. The concourse was constructed over the four KTM tracks.

From this common concourse, stairs, escalators and lifts descend from within the KTM paid area beyond the faregates to the two at-grade side platforms. Similarly beyond the MRT faregates, stairs, escalators and lifts bring passengers up to the MRT councourse level and the a further level up to the single island platform of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.

The main entrance (Entrance A) consists of escalators, stairs and lifts rising from at-grade level to the common concourse, serving both MRT and KTM users. Another entrance (Entrance B) is located at the south side of the common concourse, and is linked to a staircase down to the Kuala Lumpur-bound side of Jalan Kuala Selangor, as well as a pedestrian overhead bridge across Jalan Kuala Selangor for access to the Kuala Selangor-bound side of the road.

At the at-grade level of the station are the feeder bus station, lay-bys for taxis and private-vehicles as well as parking for the disabled were built as part of the construction of the MRT station.

History[edit]

First station[edit]

The first Sungai Buloh railway station opened in 1892 when the section of the main railway line, now the KTM West Coast Line between Batu Junction and Rawang was opened.

KTM Komuter station[edit]

The station underwent refurbishment as part of the Klang Valley Electrification and Double Tracking Project which saw the station becoming one of the stations of the KTM Komuter service in 1995. The station was originally on the Rawang-Seremban Line until 2016 when a revamp of the KTM Komuter service saw the station serving the Port Klang Line with trains running between Tanjung Malim and Port Klang.

The station had four tracks, with two side platforms serving the two outer tracks. A pedestrian overhead bridge, which later had lifts to make the bridge disabled friendly, linked to the two platforms. The main entrance together with the main station building was located on the south-bound platform.

Integrated interchange station[edit]

When construction of the Klang Valley MRT Project began in 2010, the Sungai Buloh MRT Station was designed to be one of four interchange stations between the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line and the Keretapi Tanah Melayu railway network. The other interchange stations are Muzium Negara, Pasar Seni and Kajang station.

The Sungai Buloh KTM Station was already in existence at the location and the new MRT station was constructed next to it, occupying what was previously the at-grade open air car park. The MRT section and common concourse of the station, which is partially over KTM tracks, was built while the KTM station remained in operations throughout the construction period.

With the completion and opening of the new integrated station, the KTM station structure was dismantled. The KTM ticketing office and other offices were relocated from the original station to the common concourse. Only the original platforms were retained although access two then were redesigned to enable access to the common platforms, instead of to the previous at-grade exit on the northern platform.

The KTM tracks were not modified for the renovation.
