Construction of MRT3 project to continue, says Wee

SUNGAI BULOH: The construction of the Mass Rapid Transit Line 3 (MRT3) project, which was suspended by the previous government, will begin in the second half of this year.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said as such, the ministry had given Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) three months to update the studies that have been conducted previously on the implementation of the project, to be presented to the cabinet. 

“In the recent cabinet meeting, the government has agreed to go ahead with the MRT3 Circle Line and MRT Corp was given three months to update the studies which include the cost of this project,” he told reporters here today. 

He said this after inspecting the operational availability of the first phase of the Putrajaya MRT line from Sri Damansara Sentral MRT Station to Kampung Batu MRT Station, Kuala Lumpur.
