Switch malfunction affects LRT operations on Kelana Jaya Line

KUALA LUMPUR: Kelana Jaya Light Rail Transit (LRT) service is experiencing delays due to a switch malfunction, resulting in trains moving slowly and stopping for longer periods.

Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd said the first incident occurred at 4.24 pm today (Jan 5), causing the train to be manually operated between KL Sentral and Pasar Seni stations.

The technical team was dispatched to the location and repairs were completed at 5.20pm, it said.

"The second disruption occurred between the Damak and Dato' Keramat stations at 5.26pm. As of now, technical staff are actively carrying out repairs and will ensure normal operations resume immediately," it said in a statement today.

To reduce congestion at the stations, free shuttle services will be provided between the KLCC, Ampang Park, Damai, Dato' Keramat, Jelatek and Setiawangsa stations.

Commuters are advised to plan their journey ahead as well as check Rapid KL's social media for the latest information and updates. — BERNAMA
