LRT train breaks down at KL Sentral

PETALING JAYA: A train has broken down at the KL Sentral LRT station, disrupting travel along the Kelana Jaya Line on Friday (May 20).

In a series of tweets, RapidKL announced that shuttle trains had been activated between the Bangsar and Pasar Seni stations.

It added that trains from Putra Heights would turn back at the Bangsar station while trains from Gombak would turn back at the Pasar Seni station.

As of 5.33pm, it said a technical team was on site for rectification works.

Free shuttle buses have also been deployed to ferry passengers to and from the Bangsar, KL Sentral and Pasar Seni stations.

Photos on social media also show crowds of people at the stations, with many users venting their frustration online.

Users are advised to get the latest updates on the situation through Rapid KL's social media platforms.

RapidKL tweeted at 6.50pm that they were "regulating the service at normal speed and frequency will be restored in a few minutes."

On May 10, a brake fault on a train at the Taman Jaya LRT station caused disruption along the LRT Kelana Jaya Line.

Approximately 12,000 passengers were affected after the train's brake hydraulic system leaked and automatically activated the brakes to prevent it from moving.
