Second phase of MRT Putrajaya line to run in January


Phase Two of the Putrajaya Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Line from Kampung Batu to Putrajaya Sentral is now 98% complete, says its project director Datuk Amiruddin Ma’aris.

He said Phase Two operations were expected to start in January next year, enabling trains to pass through the entire route from Kwasa Damansara to Putrajaya Sentral.

“Among the activities being carried out are architectural work, link roads, landscaping as well as testing and commissioning,” he said at a media briefing on the Putrajaya MRT Phase One line from Kwasa Damansara to Kampung Batu, which is expected to be open from June 16 at 3pm.

The 17.5km MRT Putrajaya Phase One line covers nine new stations and three stations that were originally part of the MRT Kajang Line.

The driverless automated train operation is capable of carrying 1,200 passengers. — Bernama
