KUALA LUMPUR: Keretapi Tanah Melayu's (KTM) Komuter service and Electric Train Service (ETS) are experiencing disruptions of between 15 and 30 minutes from the original schedule on Wednesday (Nov 29) due to a train derailment incident at the Klang Valley Double Tracking project engineering 1 (KVDT1) at KM387.755 between the Kuala Lumpur Station and KL Sentral Station at 4.05am.
In a statement on Wednesday, KTM said the incident occurred when the project's engineering train was carrying out work to upgrade the track at KL Sentral.
"The incident caused a disruption in the ETS train service on the KL Sentral-Butterworth-KL Sentral and KL Sentral-Padang Besar-KL Sentral routes as well as the Klang Valley KTM Komuter service on the KL Sentral-Tanjong Malim- KL Sentral and Batu Caves-KL Sentral-Batu Caves routes due to the use of only one track," the statement said.

According to KTM, diversion work was being carried out and monitored by security personnel and we request passengers using the respective platforms to comply with the instructions and rules of the station staff.
