Not that possible, the Kelana Jaya line had been fixed for 4-car, 67 m long trains. There is constraint at the underground stations. Running longer trains (> 67 m) would entail substantial work at underground stations.

Media Release: MRT SUNGAI BULOH-SERDANG-PUTRAJAYA LINE PROJECT DIRECTOR APPOINTED

Encik Amiruddin Maaris brings vast experience in rail project development to the Klang Valley MRT Project

Kuala Lumpur, 30 January 2015: Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) wishes to announce the appointment of Encik Amiruddin Maaris as Project Director for the development of MRT Line 2, known as the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line.

The appointment is effective 9 February 2015.

MRT Corp Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Sri Shahril Mokhtar said Amiruddin, 45, was not a stranger to the Klang Valley MRT Project.

“Amiruddin was General Manager of the MRT Project from March 2011 and November 2011 when Prasarana Malaysia Bhd (PRASARANA) was the owner of the Klang Valley MRT Project. In fact, he was with the Project when construction of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line began,” he said.
Shahril said Amiruddin had vast experience in project management and infrastructure development.

“I have full confidence in Amiruddin as Project Director for the SPP Line. Together with Mr Marcus Karakashian, who as Project Director of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line has brought the construction of the first MRT line to 60% completion, I believe the Klang Valley MRT Project has an extremely strong team to see it to completion,” he said.

The SSP Line is expected to serve a corridor with a population of 1.2 million people. The corridor stretches from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya and covers areas such as Kepong, KLCC, Serdang and Cyberjaya.

MRT Corp is currently in the process of preparing the proposed SSP Line for public display.
Thus, it is possible for the MRT 2 project to commence in quick succession after the completion of civil works of MRT 1.

...But what about the length of the trains and stations for the Ampang Line?

Ampang line = 84 m, for both the current and the upcoming train.

While both share the same length, it is different as in the new train allows walkthrough gangway from either end of the train unlike the current train.

Currently Ampang line has a fleet of 30 trains. In future, it will be 50, all of which compose new trains from CSR Zhuzhou. Length of Ampang line will be increased from current 27 km to about 44.7 km.

Train operation headway will be improved to around 2 minutes. A new signalling system, Thales Seltrac CBTC will be activated. It will be driverless, but attendant will be on board to operate the doors.

MRT Corp has updated their website to include a page on Sungai Buloh - Serdang - Putrajaya line!

SOURCE : http://www.mymrt.com.my/new/en/sungai-bulo...ajaya-line/home

Quote:
UNDER the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley Land Public Transport Master Plan, the corridor for MRT Line 2 will run from Sungai Buloh to Serdang and onward to Putrajaya, hence its name MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line.

Areas served by the line include Kepong, Kampung Batu, Jalan Ipoh, Jalan Tun Razak, Kampung Baru, KLCC, Pandan Jaya, Pandan Indah, Taman Segar, Alam Damai, Bukit Belimbing and Seri Kembangan.

The alignment is expected to be elevated at the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, and run underground when it traverses the city centre.

The proposed MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line alignment is currently being finalised by the Government and will be displayed for public feedback very soon.

UPDATED: Cheetah on KLIA Ekspres!
Posted on Thursday, 12 February 2015 in Members' News
https://www.globalairrail.com/news/e...n-klia-ekspres

MALAYSIA: Express Rail Link Sdn. Bhd. (ERL) unveiled the KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit new train livery design featuring the cheetah, the world’s fastest animal on land, which also embodies the train’s speed and reliability. The cheetah icon was selected to replace the flora and fauna batik motive that the trains had been sporting since it began operations in 2002. The new train livery design also signifies ERL’s commitment to evolve and incorporate innovative business solutions in its day-to-day operations.

The unveiling of the new train livery design was officiated by the Chairman of Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD), YBhg. Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Syed Hamid Syed Jaafar Albar.

Chief Executive Officer of ERL Noormah Mohd Noor in her speech said, “With the opening of KLIA2 last May, the total daily ridership for both KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit in 2014 grew by 43% compared to the year before. We have also consistently maintained an impeccable world class on-time availability of 99.7% since 2002.

Watching this video makes me want to get a drone! I love the shot at 1:34!!

The guideway structure for this (and other lines in KL) is massive. I hope cities will shift to using maglev or monorail technology for future lines. The guideway structure is minimal compared to traditional steel wheel on steel rail systems. Sound barriers like those shown at 5:28 would also be unnecessary.

I'm happy this line is getting built though. It looks like its badly needed.
