    1. Changes to LRT Ampang & Sri Petaling Line due to Civil Structure Failure near Bandaraya Station

      • LRT 10: Masjid Jamek Station – Bandaraya Station

    2. LRT 11 Rail Replacement Shuttle Activated

    Following the civil structure failure on the LRT Ampang Line & Sri Petaling Line caused the trains serving between Bandaraya & Sentul Timur to be unable to return to the depot for routine maintenance, plus repeated technical faults on 2 of the trains causing it unfit for passenger service, the shuttle train service between Bandaraya & Sentul Timur will now run with remaining 2 trainsets in the section on a rotational basis and with 24-minute frequency.
