The Mass Rapid Transit 3 (MRT3) Circle Line project in Malaysia is estimated to cost around RM39.4 billion to complete and is scheduled to commence commercial operations in 2030. Out of the total cost, RM31 billion has been allocated for construction of the line while the remaining RM8.4 billion will cover land acquisition costs.
Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) has been appointed as the project developer and asset owner for the rail network. The Ministry of Transport (MoT) has also announced that starting May 2022, the agency will start awarding tenders for the project, which will be separated into five main packages. Tender for construction works will be awarded in Q4 2022.
Kuala Lumpur’s MRT3 Circle Line City is 51km long and comprises 40 km of elevated tracks and 11 km. The line’s current alignment includes 31 stations out of which 10 will act as interchange stations with the eight existing rail lines in the Klang Valley.
