Toward Sustainable Transportation: Pedestrian Walkways


Soon, there will be a number of pedestrian walkways being completed throughout Kuala Lumpur. The initiatives is under the Urban Public Transport (UPT), National Key Results Areas (NKRA) which is a a joint effort between Prasarana and Kuala Lumpur City Hall. Hope that in the future, more pedestrian walkways should be provided in order to encourage walking and thus contributing toward sustainable transportation. The selection of the location for pedestrian walkways must be carried out systematically in order to capture the areas with high pedestrian volumes.

The covered walkway projects are as follows:

From Pasar Seni LRT station to the Central Market.

From Pasar Seni LRT station to KTM Komuter station with an elevated walkway.

From Bandaraya LRT station to the City Hall building in Jalan Raja Laut.

From Hang Tuah LRT station to the Monorail station and the Masjid Al-Bukhary.

From Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) LRT station to The Mall and Hentian Putra.

From Plaza Rakyat LRT station to Pudu Raya bus terminal and the Cahaya Suria and Maybank buildings.

From Medan Tuanku Monorail station to the Maju Junction Mall and the Sultan Ismail LRT station.

Covered at-grade and elevated walkways connecting LRT and Monorail stations to key buildings and areas in the city
