PETALING JAYA: Fourteen new train sets will run on the Kelana Jaya LRT Line when its extension goes live in June 2016. 

Assembled in Canada, the first of the blue-coloured Innovia four-car sets were shipped to Malaysia on Oct 18 from train maker Bombardier Hartasuma Consortium. 

"We now await its arrival next week," Prasarana's Integrated Management and Engineering Services section chief executive Khairani Mohamed said in a statement Thursday. 

Prasarana, which runs RapidKL services, did not say how many people an Innovia set could fit. 

It said the trains would have "dynamic route maps" and "plugged-in doors", which would lead to better noise levels and cooler surroundings.

According to Khairani, the trains would be sent to Bombardier's plant in West Port for interior works and testing. 

It will then be taken to Prasarana's Subang depot for more testing. 

Another 13 sets will be sent for routine testing, with the second set to arrive in the country early December. 

The rest will come here in stages over 2016. 

The Kelana Jaya extension will see another 12 stations stretching from the Kelana Jaya stop up to Putra Heights, which will link with the Ampang Line extension. 

The first phase of the Ampang Line extension went live on Oct 31, with four new stations opened to the public. Another seven will be opened on March 31.
