2nd and 3rd MRT lines may cover Putrajaya

KUALA LUMPUR: The second and third lines of the mass rapid transit (MRT) system are expected to serve Putrajaya, said MRT Corp Sdn Bhd CEO Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid.

He said the Land Public Transport Commission is preparing a working paper on the new lines, which will be presented to the government for approval.

“We are expecting good news [approval from the government] by year-end,” Azhar told reporters after visiting MRT’s centralised labour quarters (CLQ) yesterday.

He said the working paper will cover the second and third lines of the MRT but the execution will depend on whether the government wants to implement both lines simultaneously or one after the other.

Azhar said the second line may cover Sungai Buloh and Putrajaya but nothing has been finalised yet.

On the CLQ, he said the centre will cater for the accommodation of foreign workers and a few local personnel.

At the peak of the MRT construction, about 13,000 workers are expected to be deployed.

MRT will build four centres for RM100 million to accommodate 12,000 workers in Sungai Buloh, Cochrane, Cheras and Kajang. — Bernama
