The LRT Kelana Jaya Line is a medium-capacity light rapid transit (LRT) line and the first fully automated and driverless rail system in the Klang Valley, Malaysia. It forms a part of the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System in and around Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Servicing 37 stations, the line has 46.4 km of grade-separated tracks running mostly on underground and elevated guideways. Formerly known as the PUTRA LRT, It is operated as part of the RapidKL system by Rapid Rail, a subsidiary of Prasarana Malaysia. The line is named after its former terminus, Kelana Jaya station.

The line is numbered 5 and coloured ruby on official transit maps.

History

Construction began in 1994, about the same time as construction of the Ampang Line. The tunnels were constructed by Hazama Corporation and Hyundai E&C.[3] Operation commenced on 1 September 1998 between Subang Depot and Pasar Seni, with phase two, Pasar Seni to Terminal Putra, on 1 June 1999.[4]

In 2002, the line carried its 150 millionth passenger, with an average of 160,000 passengers daily.[5] Today, it carries over 250,000 passengers a day and over 350,000 a day during national events.[6]

The line underwent a 17 km extension with construction commencing in early 2010 through to 2016. With 13 new stations to the line, the new terminus is now at Putra Heights, extending from Kelana Jaya, where it meets with the Sri Petaling Line.[7]

The Kelana Jaya Line was known as PUTRA LRT, "PUTRA" standing for Projek Usahasama Transit Ringan Automatik Sdn Bhd (Automatic Light Transit Joint Venture Project), until the company was taken over by its current owner Prasarana Malaysia.

The line runs from Putra Heights through Kelana Jaya to Gombak, serving the Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya regions to the south; southwest and central Kuala Lumpur, and Kuala Lumpur City Centre to the centre; and low density residential areas further north. At 46.4 km in length, it is one of the longest fully automated driverless metro lines in the world.

The stations are given in a north–south direction, consists primarily of elevated stops and a handful of underground and at-grade stations. Of the 37 stations, 31 are elevated, Sri Rampai lies at ground level, and five stops (Masjid Jamek, Dang Wangi, Kampung Baru, KLCC and Ampang Park) are underground.

The stations, like those of the Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines, are styled in several types of architectural designs. Elevated stations, in most parts, were constructed in four major styles with distinctive roof designs for specific portions of the line. KL Sentral station, added later, features a design more consistent with the Stesen Sentral station building. Underground stations, however, tend to feature unique concourse layout and vestibules, and feature floor-to-ceiling platform screen doors to prevent platform-to-track intrusions. 22 stations (including two terminal stations and the five subway stations) use a single island platform, while 15 others use two side platforms. Stations with island platforms allow easy interchange between north-bound and south-bound trains without requiring one to walk down/up to the concourse level. The island platform at Putra Heights terminal station is shared with the Sri Petaling Line trains bound for Sentul Timur, allowing cross-platform line interchange at the station.

The stations were built to support disabled passengers, with elevators and wheelchair lifts alongside escalators and stairways between the levels. The stations have platform gaps smaller than 5 cm to allow easy access for the disabled and wheelchair users. They are able to achieve this with:

The stations on the Kelana Jaya Line are the earliest rapid transit stations in the Klang Valley designed to provide a degree of accessibility for handicapped users. In contrast, handicapped-friendly facilities for the Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines were installed beginning in 2012.

The stations have closed-circuit security cameras for security purposes.

Extensions

On 29 August 2006, Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Mohd Najib Abdul Razak announced that the western end would be extended to the suburbs of Subang Jaya which are USJ and Putra Heights to the south-west of Kuala Lumpur. The extension will be part of a RM10 billion plan to expand Kuala Lumpur's public transport network.

The expansion plan will also see the Sri Petaling Line extended to the suburbs of Puchong and the south-west of Kuala Lumpur The plan also involved the construction of an entirely new line, tentatively called the Kota Damansara–Cheras line, running from Kota Damansara in the western portion of the city, to Cheras which lies to the south-east of Kuala Lumpur.

As of August 2008, Syarikat Prasarana Negara was reportedly running land and engineering studies for the proposed extension.[22]

In September 2009, Syarikat Prasarana Negara began displaying the alignment of the proposed extensions over a 3-month period for feedback. The Kelana Jaya extension will see 13 new stations over 17 km from Kelana Jaya to Putra Heights. Construction is expected to commence in early 2010.[7][10][11][23]

In November 2010, Prasarana announced that it has awarded RM1.7 billion for first phase of the project. The winners include Trans Resource Corp Bhd for the Kelana Jaya Line extension. UEM Builders Bhd and Intria Bina Sdn Bhd were appointed as subcontractors for the fabrication and supply of segmental box girder jobs for the Kelana Jaya Line.[24]

Construction works on the Kelana Jaya Line and the Sri Petaling Line extension project are targeted to accelerate at the end of March, with commencement of structural works, subject to approval from state government and local authorities.[25]

As of 2014, completion of the extension is targeted for 2016.[26] Refer to the previous table in #Line and Station section above.

On 14 April 2016, Prasarana Malaysia confirmed in a media release that the Kelana line extension will be fully operating on 30 June 2016.[15]

Rolling stock

Unrefurbished 2-car Bombarider Innovia ART 200
Unrefurbished 2-car Bombarider Innovia ART 200

The rolling stock, in use since the opening of the line in 1998, consists of 35 Innovia ART 200 trains[7][27] with related equipment and services supplied by the Bombardier Group and train electronics company Quester Tangent. They consist of two-electric multiple units, which serve as either a driving car or trailer car depending on its direction of travel. They are equipped with Linear Induction Motor (LIM) propulsion technology which allows for operation on tighter curves, with less noise and greatly reduced wheel and track wear. The plating in between the running rails is used for accelerating and decelerating the train and the reaction plate is semi-magnetised, which pulls the train along as well as helps it to slow down.

The ART is completely automated and operates without drivers, stopping at stations for a limited amount of time. Nevertheless, manual override control panels are provided at each end of the trains for use in an event of an emergency. The technology is essentially identical to that of the Vancouver SkyTrain, which operates in very similar environments.

The interior of the ART, like its Ampang and Sri Petaling Lines' counterparts, consists of plastic seating aligned sideways towards the sides of the train, with one foldable seats for passengers at the end of the cars for wheelchair, and spacing in the middle for standing occupants. Since its launch in 1998, the ART rolling stock has remained relatively unchanged; only more holding straps have been added and the labeling has been modified from Putra-LRT to RapidKL. Some of the rolling stock has the majority of the seats removed for added passenger capacity during rush hours.

On 13 October 2006, Syarikat Prasarana Negara signed an agreement with Bombardier HARTASUMA Consortium for the purchase of 88 Innovia ART 200 cars (22 train sets of 4-cars) with an option for another 13 for RM1.2 billion.[28] The 22 train sets, initially targeted to be delivered from August 2008 onwards, will have four cars each and will boost the carrying capacity of the fleet by 1,500 people. On 8 October 2007, Syarikat Prasarana Negara exercised its option to purchase an additional 52 Innovia ART 200 cars (13 train sets of 4-cars) for 71 million, expected to be delivered in 2010[citation needed].

Although the trains were expected to arrive in August 2008, the delivery was delayed to November 2008 by the manufacturer. Rapid Rail said that the trains will only be usable by September 2009 after having sufficient rolling stocks, power line upgrades and safety testing.[29] Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat has said in Parliament that the new trains will begin operations by December 2009.[30] However, in July 2009, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak announced that the four-car trains will only be fully operational by end-2012.[9]

On 30 December 2009, 3 of the 35 new four-car trains entered commercial service.[31] New features other than increased capacity up to 950 passengers per trip are seat belts for wheel-chair bound travelers, door alarm lights for hearing impaired and more handles for standing commuters.[32]

Innovia ART 200 Mid-Life Refurbishment

In June 2012, several 2-car Innovia ART 200 trains underwent major refurbishment work done by from Hartasuma Consortium known as Mid-Life Refurbishments (MLR).[33] The refurbishments include an updated livery, changes of the LED headlights and interior lights, as well as other interior refurbishments which include a newer seat design and the installation of additional infotainment systems. Facilities were also added such as openable windows during emergencies. The first MLR set, TR08 entered service on October 15, 2014.[34]

In 2017, another MLR project included two 2-car sets permanently coupled to form a 4-car set, known as the 'married train'. Interiors were similar to the previous MLR sets with added TV panels at each end of the sets, dynamic route map displays and walkable through gangways between the two sets. The first coupled train, TR87 (previously TR22 and TR27) entered service on 29 December 2017, with the remaining undergoing delivery in stages.[35]

Starting from June 2016 under the Kuala Lumpur Additional Vehicle programme, the new generation Bombardier Innovia Metro 300 started service. Each driverless train features a new design for the end caps, a curved sidewall structure, and a larger, more spacious interior. All trains come in a four-car configuration with each car accommodating up to 220 passengers. Low energy consumption is achieved through a combination of lightweight aluminium car shells and a LIM propulsion system. Furthermore, the vehicle's regenerative braking enables the reuse of energy released during braking. The aisles and walk-through gangways are also wider when compared with the previous fleet. In addition, the trainsets are equipped with 16 cameras on board, infotainment LCD screens, dynamic route maps, better air-conditioning and bigger windows. With the new trains, the line could increase its capacity by 20 to 30 per cent.[36][37][38][39]

An additional 27 new trainsets are being delivered. As of August 2020, three have arrived with two of them under installation. They were delivered for the first time by air using an Antonov An-124, one of the largest cargo planes in existence. The rest of the fleet are to be delivered by ship.[40] Since 27 June 2021, two trainsets labelled Sets 92 and 93 were spotted to be in service on the line.[note 1][41]
