The Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) is a three-line modern railway system to improve transport and reduce traffic congestion across Greater Kuala Lumpur.
The first MRT line, the Sungai Buloh–Kajang (SBK) Line, was completed in July 2017, while work is currently ongoing for the 52.2-kilometer-long Sungai Buloh–Serdang–Putrajaya (SSP) Line.
The SSP project is managed by two different entities—project owner Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) as project manager for the underground design and build package; and MMC Gamuda JV as the project delivery partner for the elevated and system works packages.
MRT Corp’s SSP Line Project Division manages the construction of the line’s elevated guideway depots, tunnels and stations, as well as the electrical and mechanical systems required for a fully functional railway system.
