16 April, 2006 | Written by Patchay at 5:28 PM in


KL Infrastructure Group Bhd, the company which operates the Kuala Lumpur monorail has submitted a proposal to construct four new lines in the Klang Valley with a total length of 71km and using 62 four-car monorail trains.

It is estimated to cost RM4.5bil and would take six years to complete. The four new lines were the 21km Petaling Jaya line, 18km Subang Jaya line, 19km Sungai Buloh line and 13km Cheras line. The four lines will have 47 stations.

The Sungai Buloh line will directly link up with the existing KL Monorail system at the Titiwangsa station while the Subang Jaya line will link up with the existing system at the Tun Sambanthan station in Brickfields.

All four lines will integrate with the existing light rail transit (LRT) and the KTM Komuter rail systems.

“We should see another 320,000 passengers using the entire rail system daily on top of the current 340,000 passengers."
