LRT3 route alignment – revision made in Klang


Prasarana has announced a revision of the route alignment of the Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT3), which connects Bandar Utama, Damansara and Johan Setia in Klang. The route, which was originally planned to cut through the housing area of Taman Muhibah, Klang, has now been altered to Pasar Besar Klang at Jalan Meru, The Sun reports.

The alignment change was revealed yesterday by Selangor Investment, Industrial, Commerce and Transport Committee chairman Datuk Teng Chang Khim.

“The LRT3 will no longer run through the housing estate, the alignment changes will not involve any acquisition of property. The station, which was initially planned to be built next to SMK Tinggi Klang, will also be changed next to the market,” he told reporters.

Residents of Taman Muhibah had reportedly objected to the proposed line, which would have run through their housing area and needed the acquisition of some properties. Based on the original alignment, 12 houses and eight shoplots were due to make way for the 36 km-long line, which is scheduled to begin operation on August 31, 2020.

A total of 25 stations are planned, with proposed sub-two kilometre distances between them. There will be one underground station in the line, with the other 24 being elevated stations, and of the total, 10 stations are expected to have park-and-ride facilities.

The LRT3 line is expected to serve around two million people in the Klang Valley, transporting around 70,000 passengers daily with an end-to-end journey time of 51 minutes. The first running trials will begin after the project is completed sometime in the first quarter of 2020.

    Why Setia Alam was left out of the picture… LRT there will certainly benefit a lot more people…

    Please change the location of the LRT station in Damansara Utama and bring it closer to the SPRINT highway because the present location is too near to the low cost flats and Indonesian settlements and unsafe. Read today’s Star report of two gangs fighting each other at Dataran Pelangi Utama. I won’t dare to walk to the station although I live a short distance away. Too worried about muggers and snatch thieves there.
