The Klang Valley MRT (KVMRT) Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line concluded its public display of the railway scheme at seven locations in the Klang Valley with a 91% support for the project.

The public display, which ran for three months beginning Feb 14, registered more than 6,000 comments and suggestions from various channels, including feedback forms, logbooks, emails, helpline and letters.

The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) which led the public display, was encouraged by the strong attendance and show of support by the public.

“Public participation and feedback are important to us.

“Over the past three months, we have received more than 6,000 responses with an overall, 91% public support towards implementation of the KVMRT Sungai Buloh–Kajang line,” said SPAD chief executive officer Mohd Nur Kamal.

“We’re glad to see this, because it means the public has been objective towards this project from the very beginning.

“Through the various stakeholder engagements that we have organised, we have seen the majority are in support of the KVMRT project.

“When we studied the objections, they were mostly connected to the proposed alignment and environmental issues, which we are now being looked into,” he added.

“SPAD in its role as the regulator of public transport and supervising authority for the KVMRT Sungai Buloh – Kajang project is now analysing all public feedback.

“We will be presenting the findings to the Government to ensure that the project owners deliver a MRT line that will meet the aspirations of a cost-efficient, convenient and socio-economically beneficial public transportation system.
