MALAYSIA: Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit appointed Gamuda and MMC Corp to form a joint venture to build Klang Valley MRT Line 2 on October 28.

The 56 km line would run from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya via Serdang. At Sungai Buloh there would be a depot shared with MRT Line 1; Sungai Buloh would also offer interchange between the two lines.

Construction is expected to start next year and take five years to complete. The cost is estimated at 23bn ringgit and the project is included in the 2015 Malaysian budget.

The 51 km MRT Line 1 from Sungai Buloh to Kajang is around 50% complete. A proposed third line would follow a circular route.
