PETALING JAYA: The finalised names of all 31 stations along the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Sungai Buloh-Kajang line have been revealed.
MRT Corp CEO Datuk Wira Azhar Abdul Hamid said the names reflected the locality of the stations along the route, also known as Line 1.
"A commuter should know where he is when he arrives at any MRT station, and this is why we have tweaked the provisional MRT station names," Azhar said, adding that the Prime Minister had personally approved the final list.
Major changes include naming the Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh station (next to the Sungai Buloh station) as Kampung Selamat.
The KL Sentral station will be named Muzium Negara, as the footprint of the station is actually at the door of the National Museum, while Tun Razak Exchange will be the final name for the interchange station formerly known as Pasar Rakyat.
