PUTRAJAYA: The Sungai Buloh-Kajang MRT line will be fully operational on July 17 with the completion of its second phase.

"MRT Phase 1 has been operational since Dec 16 last year, and Phase 2 will be operational this July, which completes the entire 51-km Sungai Buloh-Kajang line," said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

"I have already chosen a special date for the launch, which is July 17, or 17.7.17," Najib said in his speech at the launch of the Third National Physical Plan (RFN Ke-3), Second National Urban Policy (DPN2), and the National Rural Physical Planning Policy (DPF Desa Negara) here Thursday.

Najib said the MRT service will benefit over 500,000 commuters daily, and will help spur national productivity and growth.

"It is a necessity to implement an efficient public transportation system that will connect cities to towns and rural areas," he added.
