Rapid KL has announced that normal operations for the Ampang and Sri Petaling LRT lines will resume on 29 February

In an X post on Friday, 5 January, Rapid KL said the route from Masjid Jamek to Bandaraya LRT stations is set to reopen, pending the successful completion of repairs and approval from the authorities.

Several stations on the Ampang and Sri Petaling LRT lines experienced major disruptions to their services last year

It was previously reported that Rapid KL detected structural damage and a kinked track at the Bandaraya station in January 2023. As a safety measure, the Bandaraya and Masjid Jamek stations were closed for repairs to be carried out.

In the meantime, commuters were advised to use alternative rail lines to reach their destinations.

Passengers heading to Hang Tuah station currently have to use the Titiwangsa Monorail station, while those bound for Chan Sow Lin have to take the Putrajaya MRT line.

Back then, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said repairs of the surrounding structures would take eight months to complete

However, Rapid KL later announced that the repairs would be delayed until February 2024 due to the discovery of additional damage in nearby structures.
