The group were brief that all the necessary approval from the Selangor State Government, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur and Public Work Department (PWD/JKR) including gazzetting the land for aquisition. This is to prevent any speculations on the land intended for the development of the said project. DOE has also approved the said project.
The extension line were 17.7 km and has 13 stations with 4 park and ride stations whilst the rest are drop and pick stations. Puchong will have 10 stations as 2 stations will be at the Kuala Lumpur halve and the last one will be at Putra Heights where the two LRT systems (Star & Putra) will be intergrated. The stations are as follows:
1. Bukit OUG
2. PPR Kg. Muhibbah
3. BK 1 & BK 6
4. BK 2 & BK 5
5. TBK & BK 3
8. Rakan Muda
9. Batu 12 (Tractor Malaysia)
10. Puchong Perdana
11. Puchong Prima
12. Kampung Tengah
13. Putra Heights
There will be a depot to keep their fleet of trains at Kampung Tengah at piece of land size of 5 hectares. The interchange will be at Putra Heights where the Kelana Jaya line meet to complete the loop. Most of the construction line is at the river banks, JKR road reserves and median and minimal acquisitions of private land thus minimising the contruction costs. All the lines are fully elevated.
The whole project is expected for public display on 15.09.2009 for 3 months. The display will be at DBKL, MPSJ, MPPJ, Dept of Railway and also in their Company website. Commencement of work are expected to begins in February 2010 and estimated completion of work in December 2012.
Datuk Idrus added on that upon completion of the public display and taking into the considerations of the puclic complaints and also in the event that the noise from the carriages will be tone down and if in the event that the noise cannot be lowered then sound barriers will be constructed. Great empasis is given on minimising the negative impacts to the general public. The line is constructed mostly with a suitable buffer away from residential houses as it is on river banks and on median of main roads and reserve land for roads. As mentioned by the project consultant that many factors have been taken into consideration to finalise the comprehensive LRT line and it's stations and to top the list is the convenience and coverage to the residential areas where the proposed option covers most housing estates, enough facilities for park & ride whilst drop off stations would have feeder bus provided for by RapidKL which is a subsidiary to Syarikat Prasarana to take them to their respective home.
The meeting ended at 11.30 am with both parties happy with the progress of the extension of the LRT line.
