KUALA LUMPUR: The public can view the latest modifications to the MRT Putrajaya Line from Thursday (Sept 17) until Dec 17, says the Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp).

The site context plans and other documents on the modifications on the railway can be inspected at the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) office at the ground floor of Menara Tun Ismail Mohamed Ali, Jalan Raja Laut in Kuala Lumpur.

The documents will be displayed for inspection from 9.00am to 4.00pm from Monday to Friday except for public holidays.

In a statement on Wednesday (Sept 16), MRT Corp said the modifications to the railway scheme are due to a cost rationalisation exercise by the Government in 2018.

It added that the exercise has resulted in a cost reduction of RM8.82 billion from RM39.35 billion to RM30.53 billion.

The modifications are made by adopting a new approach based on ridership demand data shared by the Land Public Transport Agency rather than the previous build-to-capacity approach.

Among the modifications to be carried out are the deferred opening of the Bandar Malaysia Utara and Bandar Malaysia Selatan underground stations and the deferment or revision of station entrances and pedestrian bridges.

Other modifications include the deferment of multi-storey park and ride facilities which will be replaced with at-grade park and ride facilities, and others.

The public inspection or display is a requirement under Section 84 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010.

For any inquiries, contact MRT Corp via the MRT Hotline 1800-82-6868 or by email at feedback@mymrt.com.my.
