Kelana Jaya LRT line suffers another disruption Nov 8 evening

PETALING JAYA: The Kelana Jaya LRT line has run into problems for the fourth day in a row, with the latest occurring hours after Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd called a press conference Tuesday morning (Nov 8) to explain last weekend's outage.

In the latest disruption Tuesday afternoon, trains could only run between Gombak and Damai at the northern end of the line, and from Ara Damansara to Putra Heights on the southern end of this line that has 37 stations.

On Tuesday morning, Prasarana Malaysia CEO, Mohd Azharuddin Mat Sah, said Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd is working round-the-clock to find out the root cause of the latest round of disruptions to the Kelana Jaya LRT line, which is the most-used metro line in the country.

It said the instability in the Kelana Jaya LRT Line's automatic train control system (ATC) had been temporarily resolved and service frequency was back to normal.

However, at around 4pm Tuesday, the line encountered another breakdown, leading to withdrawal of services between Ampang Park and Lembah Subang.

In a Facebook update at 4pm, Rapid KL said trains were still running from Gombak to Damai, and from Ara Damansara to Putra.
