In the near future, drivers may want to ditch their cars and take the public transport instead to go to Subang Jaya or Ampang area because MyRapid’s LRT Line Extension Project will be bringing various new stations to Kelana Jaya Line and Ampang Line soon.

Earlier last week, Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) advised drivers who are heading northbound of the Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP), near the Naza Kia showroom, to use alternative routes due to road closures that will last until 31st Jan 2015. The road closure is to facilitate construction of the Ampang LRT Line Extension Project.

And now, MyRapid has offered some updates on the LRT Line Extension Project (LEP) by announcing the new stations and their routes that for both the Ampang Line and the Kelana Jaya Line.
