The second phase of the Klang Valley MRT 1 project which runs from Semantan to Kajang is now “99% ready,” according to a report in the New Straits Times. “We are currently running final test runs on the trains. This is to ensure smooth running of the trains during and after the launch,” said Datuk Azmi Abdul Aziz, president and group chief executive officer of Prasarana Malaysia.

Phase 1 of MRT 1 commenced operations on Dec 16 last year, and the second phase appears to be on track for its launch on July 17, which will complete the 51 km Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line, the report says. Approximately 500,000 passengers are expected to pass through both phases on a daily basis.

On its opening day, we’ve tried out Phase 1 of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line, which travels from Sungai Buloh to Semantan in Damansara Heights across 12 stations on 21 km of elevated tracks at the time. Check out Danny Tan’s experience of the Mass Rapid Transit line here.
