KUALA LUMPUR — May 21, 2015: Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn. Bhd. (MRT Corp) has received positive response for the proposed alignment of the 52.2-kilometre Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya line (SSP Line).

It has so far gathered about 700 responses from visitors during the public inspection sessions at shopping malls in the Klang Valley, with more than 90 per cent positive.

“We are also getting positive feedback from the Selangor and federal governments and the Land Public Transport Commission,” MRT Corp chief executive officer Datuk Seri Shahril Mokhtarhe told reporters after visiting a public
inspection booth here today.

He said the preparations to continue the development of the SSP Line this time around have been better, with the company able to manage each complaint received through more than 20 focus group discussions.

Shahril said MRT Corp will continue to be prudent in its expenditure but safety and quality of work will not be compromised.

The SSP Line will start from Damansara and end at Putrajaya along the highly congested area and will consist of 36 stations, including 11 underground.

Construction is expected to start next year and the line expected to be completed by 2022. — Bernama
