Repair works completed, train services back to normal on Kelana Jaya LRT line

PETALING JAYA: Train services along the Kelana Jaya LRT line are back to normal, says Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd.

“Repair works have been completed. As of 10pm on Tuesday (Nov 29), trains passing through the Kerinchi LRT station have also been operating automatically and normally in both directions of the tracks.

“The engineering team will continue to monitor the situation at the affected area,” it said in a statement on Tuesday.

Earlier, it announced that a lightning strike on a Platform Intrusion Emergency Stop (PIES) component at the Kerinchi LRT station caused the delay in train frequencies along the Kelana Jaya LRT line.

It said the lightning strike caused the PIES to be activated, resulting in trains from both directions unable to pass through that part of the track.

“Our technical crew is currently onsite and conducting repair works. The glitch also caused trains passing through that route to be driven manually, resulting in delays and passenger congestion at several stations,” it said.

It added that free shuttle bus services were also prepared to ferry passengers from the Bangsar LRT station to the Pasar Seni LRT station, and from the KLCC LRT station to the Pasar Seni LRT station.

It had also earlier advised commuters to expect delays along the Kelana Jaya LRT line due to a technical glitch, adding that the frequency of train services at various stations between Kerinchi and Ampang Park would be at about 15 minutes after a train had to be taken out of service.
