district, the station will provide unparalleled access to the area. The MRT is designed to
transport up to 20,000 commuters per hour per direction.
Besides access to and from street level, there are also plans to construct linkages to
adjacent buildings such as Lot 10 and Low Yat Plaza. Construction of the station is expected
to take 5 years.

About the MRT Project
MRT is a new rail transport system for the Klang Valley. It is part of the government’s Greater Kuala
Lumpur/Klang Valley’s National Key Economic Area (NKEA), under the Economic Transformation
Programme. The Sungai Buloh – Kajang (SBK) Line runs for 51kms, from the north-west town of Sg
Buloh to the south-east city town of Kajang. Upon completion, it will comprise 31 stations, and serve
1.2 million people along the route. It will also have strategic integration with KL’s existing rail transport
network, namely the LRT, Monorail and KTM Komuter, as well as intra and inter-city bus routes. The
end result will be better connectivity for KL and its surrounding cities, while reducing the number of
cars that enter the capital.
