The Putrajaya Line is the second line of the KVMRT Project to be developed. It will serve a corridor with a population of around 2 million people stretching from Sungai Buloh, through the centre of Kuala Lumpur and its southern suburbs, to Putrajaya, Malaysia’s federal administrative centre.
The alignment will have a length of 52.2km, consisting of 38.7km of elevated tracks and 13.5km running through underground tunnels. It will have 35 stations of which 24 are elevated and 11 underground.
There will be 11 interchange stations, making it much easier for commuters to transfer from the Putrajaya Line to existing and future rail lines, including the future Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail. Sixteen stations will have park and ride facilities.
The Government gave its approval for the implementation of the Putrajaya Line in 2014. A Public Inspection exercise pursuant to Section 84 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010 was then held from May to August 2015 for members of the public to give their feedback and objections.
The final approval for the Putrajaya Line Railway Scheme was given by the Government in October 2015, enabling land acquisition and the procurement process to proceed.
The ground breaking ceremony, which was officiated by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak, was held at the site of the future Putrajaya Sentral Station on 15 September 2016, marking the commencement of construction works of the SSP Line.
Phase One from the Sungai Buloh Station to the Kampung Batu Station will begin operations in July 2021, while the rest of the line from the Kampung Batu Station to the Putrajaya Sentral Station will be operational under Phase Two in July 2022.
At commencement of full service, the SSP Line is expected to have a ridership of 529,000 passengers per day. This is expected to further improve the chronic traffic congestion currently faced by Kuala Lumpur.
