  • Malaysian PM opens second phase of Klang Valley MRT

"The year 2016 witnessed the public transport network of Greater KL / Klang Valley which received a significant increase in capacity with the construction of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) and the opening of Phase 1 of the MRT Sungai Bulong-Kajang (SBK) line covering 12 stations".

"I announce a 50 per cent discount for all MRT, LRT and Monorail users from tomorrow until Merdeka", Najib said.

The premier did not reveal the identity of the person, but he said he felt "enormous pride and personal satisfaction" over the completion of the rail project, which he touted as the newest and modern modern MRT system in the world.

The second MRT line, which will connect Sungai Buloh with Serdang and Putrajaya, is targeted for completion in 2022. "The person said we are better than London, we are better than NY, we are better than Hong Kong, and we are at par with Singapore", he said. "We are seeing not just the MRT but the shape of the future of Malaysia before our eyes", he added.
