KUALA LUMPUR: The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Putrajaya Phase One line is still undergoing some rectification by the turnkey operator in preparation for full operations, stated MRT Corporation Sdn Bhd.
On Nov 16, 2021, MRT Corp chief government officer Datuk Mohd Zarif Hashim stated the line could also be prepared for income service within the second quarter (Q2) of 2022.
Prior to the announcement, MRT Corp had postponed the opening date for MRT Putrajaya Line Phase One from August to mid-November 2021.
The trial operations for Phase One has been ongoing since April 29, 2021.
A complete of 16 trains have been working between Kwasa Damansara MRT Station and Kampung Batu MRT Station in full-service mode — minus the passengers — to stimulate precise operations.
The MRT Putrajaya Line (previously often known as the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line) runs by 56.2 kilometres and has 36 stations for Phases One and Two, ranging from the Kwasa Damansara station to Putrajaya.
“Meanwhile, the development of the MRT Putrajaya Line Phase Two can also be progressing nicely,” MRT Corp advised Bernama by way of electronic mail.
As of Oct 4, 2021, the development of Phase Two line is 93.52 per cent accomplished, and it’s anticipated to start operations in January 2023. – Bernama
