The 37-kilometer LRT Shah Alam Line or LRT 3, previously known as the LRT Bandar Utama–Johan Setia Line, or simply LRT Johan Setia Line,[2] is a light rapid transit (LRT) line which will be servicing the western side of Selangor and Shah Alam. It will be the eleventh rail transit line, the third Light Rapid Transit (LRT) line, and the third fully automated and driverless rail system in the Klang Valley region. The line will be operated by Rapid Rail.[3][4] It was announced by Prasarana Malaysia on 24 April 2013.[5][6]

Once the line is fully completed, it will be a component of the larger rail transport system in Klang Valley known as the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System. It is numbered 11 and coloured Sky Blue on official rail maps.

Stations

Location of Johan Setia line

A total of 26 stations were planned before the new government revised the scheme, with a proposed two-kilometre distance between each station. One station was to be an underground station, with the other 25 being elevated.

The LRT3 will feature a few interchange stations. The planned interchanges are  SBK09  Bandar Utama of the MRT Kajang Line and  KJ27  CGC-Glenmarie of LRT Kelana Jaya Line.

The alignment is based on the Final Railway Scheme approved by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD).

Due to the change of government in 2018 Malaysian general election, the new Pakatan Harapan government decided to cost-cut the project and shelved six stations from the initial plan. The Lien Hoe, Temasya, SIRIM, Bukit Raja and Bandar Botanik stations were converted into provisional stations while the underground station of Persiaran Hishamuddin was cancelled. The reasons cited for the changes made were due to the high cost of the project, unnecessary tunneling for the underground portion of the line and low ridership in the area. The provisional stations however will be built once the demand in the area picks up.[7][8]

Other cost-cutting exercises including the swapping of six-car trains for three-car trains, cutting down the total trains from 42 to 22, reducing the size of the stations and ditching costly acceleration techniques. The completion date also was extended from 2020 to 2024.[7][8]

Alignment and station list

The line currently has 25 permanent stations under construction, five of them being kept as provisional stations for the future.[9]
