SEPANG: Construction of Phase Two of the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) project involving the Semantan-Kajang line is 99% completed and will be operational as scheduled by next month, said Datuk Seri Azmi Abdul Aziz today.
The Prasarana Malaysia Bhd president and group chief executive officer said currently test runs were carried out daily.
"When Phase 2 of the MRT is launched this July 17 by the Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak), the 51km Sungai Buloh-Kajang line will be fully operational by then.
Phase 2 links Kajang to the Semantan station.
"Currently we are constantly conduct runs for the trains to ensure it is disruption free when its service starts on July 17 after the launch by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak," Azmi said after sending off some 49 Prasarana train captains to Mecca to undergo training and subsequently be on duty for the Al Mashaaer Al Mugaddassah Metro Southern Line (MMMSL).

The Phase One of the MRT project involving the 20km Sungai Buloh-Semantan line had been in operation since December last year.
