MRT Under Construction

Once completed several years later, Kuala Lumpur greater area will have its own alternative public transportation, i.e. Mass Rapid Transit (MRT). The proposed MRT system will consist of 3-lines and the total length is 150km.  The 3-line system consists of two northeast-southwest radial lines and one circular line looping around Kuala Lumpur city.

Hopefully, all of the 3-line systems will integrate efficiently with the existing public transportation system in order to reduce traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur area.

However, severe congestion are expected to occur along several routes within the vicinity of the construction area while the MRT lines are under construction. Users are encourage to use alternative routes which can be found HERE.

Irresponsible people are taking advantage of high price of scrap metal causing great danger to the public. The purpose of guardrail is to prevent serious injury to out of control vehicles. However, due to rampant theft of metals, the guardrail cannot serve it purpose to eliminate serious injuries whenever accident happen.

If you are very observant, you will find out that most of the guardrails are incapacitated due to the rampant theft of metal parts. The thefts cause great loss to the nation economy and also to any individual involving in accident involving the malfunction facilities.

A few days ago, more than 100 passengers were trapped in a stranded monorail train in Kuala Lumpur. The train was halted when safety mechanism of the train detected mulfunction of the train's traction. The safety mechanism of the train had cut off the power supply of the train to prevent the train from uncontrolled acceleration. In case of runaway train, it can be stopped using safety cushion installed at the end of the rail track as shown in the picture. Since the train has a built in safety mechanism, it is unlikely to encounter the runaway train scenario.
