Kajang-Putrajaya rail link may be revived


PETALING JAYA: Plans are afoot to revive the abandoned RM400mil Putrajaya rail link with an additional extension up to the Kajang mass rapid transit (MRT) station.

It is believed that Putrajaya Holdings SdnBhd, which is the master developer of Putrajaya administrative capital, is looking into the rail project which has been abandoned since 2004 because of the heavy traffic to the area now.

“It started as a monorail project within Putrajaya. Now apart from monorail, the option is to make it a light rail transit (LRT) project with connectivity up to the MRT station in Kajang,” said a source.

The rail link, which may potentially be Malaysia’s fourth light rail transit (LRT) line, could likely be developed at a cost of about RM2bil which includes systems work, sources said.

He said the development of the new rail link would be handled by Putrajaya Corp and the Federal Territories Ministry.
