Below are another 8 things about the MRT 3 Circle Line
#1 – Softer approach to get more to use public transport
Once this MRT 3 is completed, it will complete the KL urban rail network. (expected to encourage public transport usage). No more excuses that it takes too long to connect to some stations because of unavailability of a circle loop.
#2 – Harder approach to get more to use public transport
Further measures to reduce congestion and pollution such as vehicle and environmental fees may be introduced after this MRT 3 is completed. This includes HIGHER parking fees for example. (These days, it’s probably RM3 per hour, how high can this number go I wonder)
#3 – MRT 3 will be fully operational in 2030 and the first phase to start operations in 2028. (Read here for details) Similar to MRT Putrajaya Line lah. Read here for the details.
#4 Of the 31 stations, 24 are elevated and 7 are underground ones. There will be park and ride facilities at 15 stations. (means half of the stations have parking facilities)
#5 – Total cost is RM31 billion and this does not include another RM8 billion which is estimation for land acquisition. (wow… for the land owners)
#6 – Transport Minister Datuk Wee Ka Siong said, “The alignment will be connected to the existing rail network including the MRT1, MRT2, LRT (light-rail transit), monorail and KTM Komuter to form 10 new interchange stations for a more complete, integrated and efficient public transport system in the Klang Valley.”
#7 – Tender for MRT 3 will open in 2022 and will be done through 5 packages over a period of 6 to 8 years. It will be financed through hybrid funds like bonds, government guarantees and deferred payments.
#8 – Malaysia’s Ministry of Finance (MoF) will issue government-guaranteed Islamic bonds of up to RM50 billion in financing for the Mass Rapid Transit 3 (MRT3) Circle Line project. Extra RM11 billion is set aside for payment of interest on sukuk and other costs.
