Restart of LRT Kelana Jaya line smooth with only slight hiccup

KUALA LUMPUR: The Light Rail Transit (LRT) Kelana Jaya Line experienced only a slight hiccup in the afternoon after its first day of operations following a one week shutdown due to faults in the automatic train control system (ATC) last week.

"LRT Kelana Jaya operations since 6am today have been smooth and satisfactory with only a slight delay at 12:43pm.

"It affected certain stations around the Damai station which was quickly resolved within 15 minutes, according to our teams' monitoring this morning," said caretaker Transport minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong in his Facebook post.

"There is much less crowding today, but we continue to manage and control the queues at the high-traffic stations. On-the-ground support from auxiliary police (Polis Bantuan), station officers and Prasarana employees continues to be deployed," he said.

He added that as some users still opt for the feeder bus services, RapidKl will continue to deployed 92 buses.

Any queries about compensation for passengers have been quickly clarified by Rapid Rail staff.

"On behalf of the Government and the operator, I want to once again offer our apologies for the inconvenience to the affected passengers. We will continue to monitor the situation and do our best to ensure the LRT runs smoothly," he said.
