More details about the Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT3) project have emerged, including the planned route, list of stations and their proposed layout plan as well as how the entire line will sit in place within the larger scope of the Klang Valley integrated transit map.





Earlier, it was reported that construction of the line is set to begin in the first quarter of next year with a first quarter 2020 completion date. The line, which is scheduled to begin operation on August 31, 2020, will connect Bandar Utama, Damansara and Johan Setia, Klang.

A total of 25 stations are planned, with proposed sub-two kilometre distances between them. There will be one underground station in the line, with the other 24 being elevated stations, and of the total, 10 stations are expected to have park-and-ride facilities.

The LRT3 line will feature a number of integrated stations with paid-to-paid integration with those of other lines. Planned interchanges are the Bandar Utama MRT station (250 metre distance), Station 3 of the LRT Kelana Jaya Line (100 metres), the Pelabuhan Klang KTM station (450 metres) and two stations (SIRIM and Stadium in Shah Alam) on the KL-Klang BRT line.


It was also revealed that the 36 km route alignment is expected to be finalised by the fourth quarter of this year. Ahead of its finalisation, there will be public inspections of the proposed route alignment available at Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam and Klang city councils; Kelana Jaya, Masjid Jamek and Pasar Seni LRT stations as well as the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) office from today, May 15 to August 14.
