Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) will conduct an alignment study for the upcoming MRT Circle Line in Malaysia. The transit provider will also consider the feasibility of a proposed realignment. The main objective is to minimise social impact and ease the land acquisition process.
Once the study is completed, a Public Inspection of the MRT3 Railway Scheme will be undertaken over a period of three months during which the public will be able to provide their feedback about the route and stations.
The 51km Circle line will include 33 stations, out of which 10 stations will provide interchange to KTM Komuter, Kuala Lumpur Light Rapid Transit (LRT), KL Monorail Line, MRT Kajang Line and MRT Putrajaya Line stations. The line is expected to be fully operational by 2030.
Civil construction packages for the MRT line are yet to be awarded. Bidding period for the systems turnkey contract has been extended to the middle of February 2023.
