KUALA LUMPUR: The Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT Line Extension will commence operations on June 30 as scheduled.

Prasarana Rail and Infrastructure Projects Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Zohari Sulaiman said it had received the support letters from various agencies for the Kelana Jaya Line LRT stations within the jurisdiction of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ).

"The One-Stop Centre (OSC) of MPSJ also has accepted, checked, and acknowledged the submission, including the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) issued by the architects," he said in a statement Saturday.

Zohari was addressing the concern raised by MPSJ President, Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan who told the media yesterday that the council had not approved the CCC for the LRT stations due to the lack of parking facilities at selected stations.

He said they had also received all support letters for the remaining three Ampang Line LRT stations which came under the jurisdiction of MPSJ from various agencies including Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas), Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), Indah water Konsortium Sdn Bhd (IWK) and the Fire and Rescue Services Department.

"For the CCC issued by the architect for the remaining three Ampang Line LRT stations, the MPSJ OSC has confirmed that the submission can be made on Monday," he said.

Zohari said once the documents were submitted and acknowledged by the MPSJ OSC, the CCC submission process was considered complete.

Zohari said unlike other stations, the planning and development of parking facilities at Station 4 (Subang Jaya) and Station 7 (USJ 7) of the Kelana Jaya LRT Line Extension Project, were not included in the approved Building Plan, and as such, were not part of the CCC for the stations.

"For Station 4 and Station 7, the parking facilities were to be provided as part of a larger property development in collaboration with adjacent landowners," he said.

Zohari said Prasarana was still committed to provide temporary parking facilities in the interest of the public as an interim measure.

He added that the responsibility of Prasarana does not end with the commencement of the LRT operations.

"We have already developed more than 2,200 motorcar parking bays along the Kelana Jaya Line Extension and will continue to enhance the facilities in and around the LRT stations for the benefit of the people.

"We have also finalised the routes for the LRT feeder bus services and would deploy 30 feeder buses that would operate at a frequency of between 10 minutes and 15 minutes along 10 routes between Lembah Subang and Putra Heights from June 30," he said. – Bernama
