THE open tender process for upcoming LRT projects is expected to be completed by the end of this year and the projects are expected to start early next year, said Finance Ministry parliamentary secretary Datuk Seri Dr Hilmi Yahaya. 

“The extension of the Ampang-Sri Petaling and the Kelana Jaya lines is expected to be finished by 2010 while the new LRT project should be ready by either 2011 or 2012,” he said when winding up debates during the Supplementary Supply Bill. 

The Star line, or now known as the Ampang-Sri Petaling line, would be extended for about another 15km to Bandar Kinrara, Puchong. 

As for the Kelana Jaya line (formerly known as Putra), it would be extended to Bandar Utama and Subang Jaya. 

The new line would run for about 40km from Kota Damansara to Cheras and Balakong, he said. 

Recently, the Government announced that it would set aside RM10bil to upgrade LRT services in the Klang Valley. 

The urban rail expansion is under Inspak or the Restructuring and Integration of the Klang Valley Public Transportation System.
