Power supply disruption affects Kelana Jaya Line LRT service

KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 — The Kelana Jaya Line LRT service is operating with a limited number of trains due to a disruption to the power supply system, which was struck by lightning at 3.30pm today.

Prasarana Malaysia Berhad said the incident resulted in additional trains from the Subang LRT Depot being unable to be mobilised for use during peak hours.

“Due to the disruption, the Kelana Jaya Line LRT service is operating with a frequency of four to five minutes.

“Several facilities, including escalators, lights, and lifts at three LRT stations, namely, Kelana Jaya, Taman Bahagia, and Taman Jaya, cannot function, but commuters can still use LRT services as usual at those stations,” it said in a statement today.

Repair works were underway, and any further developments would be reported through media statements and the Rapid KL social media platform.

“Members of the Auxiliary Police and station staff have also been stationed on the platform and station concourse area to assist the movement of passengers,” said Prasarana.

It also advised commuters to use alternative rail routes like the KL Sentral LRT to the Muzium Negara MRT and the KL Sentral Monorail, the Dang Wangi LRT to the Bukit Nanas Monorail, the KLCC LRT to the Persiaran KLCC MRT, and the Ampang Park LRT to the Ampang Park MRT.

Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd also apologised for any inconvenience and delay experienced by passengers.
