EPP 4.0 - Building an Integrated Urban Mass Rapid Transit

This EPP involves the construction of a mass rapid transit (MRT) system within Greater KL/Klang Valley to reduce congestion and cater to the region’s growing population, which is expected to reach 10 million by 2020. The project will be developed by MRT Corp, which will also own the assets of the MRT system.

The MRT project is part of Greater KL/KV’s vision to create an integrated public transport network to account for at least half of all trips commuting to and from, and within KL.

Development is also expected to increase along the MRT lines, enabling the expansion of newer areas, higher pedestrian volume and increased amenities.


  • The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) construction made good progress in 2014, with the first phase of Line 1 (Sungai Buloh-Semantan) expected to be operational by end December 2016.

    The MRT is integral to the success of the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley NKEA, which in turn is a key catalyst for the ETP overall.
