The LRT Shah Alam Line or LRT 3, previously known as the LRT Bandar Utama–Klang Line, LRT Bandar Utama-Johan Setia Line or simply LRT Johan Setia Line,[4] is a medium-capacity light rapid transit (LRT) line which will be serving the Shah Alam and Klang regions on the western side of the Klang Valley, Malaysia. It will be the third LRT line, and the fourth fully automated and driverless rail system in the Klang Valley region. The line will be operated as part of the RapidKL system by Rapid Rail, a subsidiary of Prasarana Malaysia.[5][6] It was announced by Prasarana Malaysia on 24 April 2013.[7][8]

Once completed, the line will form part of the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System. It is numbered 11 and coloured sky blue on official transit maps.

The line is one out of four rapid transit lines in the Klang Valley that does not serve KL Sentral, the other three being the Ampang Line, Sri Petaling Line and the Putrajaya Line, as well as the first rapid transit line in the Klang Valley that is entirely outside the borders of the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.

Stations

Location of Shah Alam Line
Damansara Idaman LRT station.

Previously, a total of 26 stations were planned, 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  KG09  Bandar Utama on the MRT Kajang Line and  KJ27  CGC-Glenmarie on the 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 the 2018 Malaysian general election, the new Pakatan Harapan government decided to cut costs around 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.[9][10]

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.[9][10]

Alignment and station list

The line currently has 25 permanent stations under construction, five of them being kept as provisional stations for the future.[11]
