Good news for public transport users, as the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT Line Extension is well on track to begin operations this Thursday, June 30, 2016. The former will see the addition of 12 stations, while the latter consists of 14 more LRT stations.

In a report by The Star, Prasarana Rail and Infrastructure Projects CEO Datuk Zohari Sulaiman said it had received the support letters from several agencies for the Kelana Jaya Line LRT stations within the jurisdiction of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ).

“The One-Stop Centre (OSC) of MPSJ also has accepted, checked, and acknowledged the submission, including the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) issued by the architects,” he said in a statement.

The statement was meant to address a concern raised by MPSJ president Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan, who said MPSJ had not approved the CCC for the LRT stations due to the lack of parking facilities at selected stations.

Unlike other stations, Zohari said the parking facilities at Station 4 (Subang Jaya) and Station 7 (USJ 7) of the Kelana Jaya LRT Line Extension were not included in the approved building plan, and as such, were not part of the CCC for the stations.

“For Station 4 and Station 7, the parking facilities were to be provided as part of a larger property development in collaboration with adjacent landowners,” he said, adding that Prasarana will provide temporary parking facilities as a temporary measure.

As for the remaining three Ampang Line LRT stations – Puchong Perdana, Puchong Prima, and Putra Heights – Zohari said the submission of the CCC to the MPSJ OSC will be done soon. Once the documents have been submitted and acknowledged by the MPSJ OSC, the CCC submission process is complete.

Zohari also stated that Prasarana’s responsibility extends beyond the commencement of LRT operations. Currently, more than 2,200 car parking bays have been developed at various stations along the Kelana Jaya LRT Line Extension.

“We have also finalised the routes for the LRT feeder bus services and would deploy 30 feeder buses that would operate at a frequency of between 10 minutes and 15 minutes along 10 routes between Lembah Subang and Putra Heights from June 30,” he added.
