KLANG: The LRT3 is expected to begin taking on passengers from a catchment area of two million residents from March 1, 2025, said transport minister Loke Siew Fook.
He said construction on the LRT3 project was now at 86%, with work focusing on the signalling system.
“LRT3 is expected to open on March 1, 2025 and we expect it to benefit two million residents in the west of Klang Valley, especially those travelling between Petaling Jaya and Klang,” he said after inspecting the status of the Shah Alam route at the Johan Setia depot here today.
Loke said the RM16 billion project had 22 sets of three-carriage trains, with a capacity to carry 18,630 passengers per hour.
“This area, which is densely populated and developed, will see tens of thousands of passengers using LRT3 (a day).
“This project will have two interchange stations: Bandar Utama, which connects to the Kajang Line MRT, and Glenmarie, which connects to the Kelana Jaya Line LRT,” he said.
He said all the trains, which would adopt green technology, were currently in the testing phase.
