LRV-1

Come March 31, 2016, commuters will be pleased to know that four more stations of the Ampang LRT Line extension – IOI Puchong Jaya, Pusat Bandar Puchong, Taman Perindustrian Puchong, and Bandar Puteri – will begin operations.

In a report by The Star, the Ampang LRT Line will soon have 33 stations up and running by next week. The announcement should also bring respite to those living and working in Puchong, considering the congestion on the LDP highway during peak hours.

The final three stations that make up the Ampang LRT Line extension – Puchong Perdana, Puchong Prima, and Putra Heights are still under works at the moment, and are expected to start operations in June. The Putra Heights interchange will be the connecting point for the Ampang line and the Kelana Jaya line.

The Kelana Jaya LRT Line extension, consisting of 14 additional LRT stations, is also expected to start its service by June. When all the mentioned stations open for service, it will symbolise the completion of the LRT extension project that was first announced back in 2006.

Both projects appear to be in line with the government’s Budget 2016 in terms of timeline. With the extensions set to be completed in its entirety within this year, will it affect your mode of transport to work? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
