Public transport has always been a major transportation for most Malaysian. Now, let’s get to know the upcoming LRT 3 station that may be open in 2024!
The Light Rail Transit Line 3 (LRT3) predict to connect two million people between Bandar Utama and Klang by 2024. LRT 3, which was created in line with the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley (GKL/KV) Land Public Transport Masterplan, will be a crucial component in expanding rail connectivity to the Western Corridor of GKL/KV. This project is estimated to be completed by February 2024.
To provide a more convenient interchange with the current rail network and more convenient transit for passengers, LRT 3 has been designed to be aligned and integrated with two already built LRT which are:
• Station 1 – Integrated with MRT Sg. Buloh – Kajang Line at Bandar Utama Station
• Station 7- Integrated with LRT Kelana Jaya Line at CGC Glenmarie Station
Other than LRT 3 is build for connectivity for two million people, it has many other benefits such as:
For the first time in a Malaysian railway project, the LRT 3’s viaduct will be built using the U-trough technology, a top-notch innovation.
U-trough comes with an in-built noise barrier to minimise disruption to the surrounding areas during the operational stage.
It allows construction components to be pre-cast in a centralised and controlled site. At the construction site along the alignment, the UTrough will be delivered and assembled. Hence, public safety will also be enhanced due to no on-site work.
The new LRT 3 alignment has 26 stations from Bandar Utama to Johan Setia.
This newest LRT is all about protecting our environment. Here are some newest features for the upcoming LRT:
They will also provide many facilities for people to use LRT 3 station comfortably.
So there you go. All you need to know about the third line LRT line, LRT 3. Don’t forget to try the LRT 3 station once it opens to the public!
