Prasarana directed to meet on Klang Valley train disruptions, says Loke


JOHOR BARU: Prasarana Malaysia Bhd has been told to conduct a special meeting to identify the root of the technical issues occurring along the MRT and LRT lines in the Klang Valley, says Anthony Loke.

The Transport Minister admitted that several issues affecting train services had arisen in the past two weeks, causing disruptions to commuters’ journeys.

“I express my regret and apologise to those who experienced such delays especially along the MRT Kajang Line and LRT Kelana Jaya Line yesterday (Monday, March 27).

“It happened during peak hours as people were rushing home to break fast.

“I have instructed the Prasarana chairman to hold a special meeting on the technical difficulties and submit a report to the ministry.

“They need to find the source of the issues and take all necessary measures to overcome the problem,” he told reporters on Tuesday (March 28) when asked to comment about the disrupted train services in the Klang Valley.

Loke earlier launched the MyBas50 bus pass and MyBas electric at the Larkin Bus Terminal here.

Commuters on the MRT Kajang Line faced delays on Monday morning due to technical issues between the Pusat Bandar Damansara and Phileo Damansara stations.

In a post on its official Twitter account, Rapid KL said at 8.55am that a train between the two stations was facing brake issues and power problems and repairs were being carried out immediately.

Later at 6.50pm, Rapid KL also tweeted about delays on the LRT Kelana Jaya Line due to system issues at the Taman Bahagia station.
