Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun attended economic information session organized by 'Majlis Penerangan Ekonomi Nasional (PENA)' last night. Although the session last long until late at night, the residents of Kajang did not budge from their seats. This strong support shown by BN supporters and also from the local people. Even though there is no 'rain fall' projects announce by BN in this coming by election, the people of Kajang were not disseminated from the current development from the BN central government. One of the major project, which is on-goings in Kajang is the Klang Valley MRT Project. 

The Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit Project involves the construction of a railway network which will form the backbone of the Klang Valley’s public transport system. The project is a crucial component of the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley National Key Economic Area (Greater KL/KV NKEA) and is the largest infrastructure project in the country. 

It will significantly improve the coverage of rail-based public transport in the Klang Valley and enable 50% of all trips in the Klang Valley to be done on public transport by 2020, up from the current 17%.

The Government approved the Klang Valley MRT Project on 17 December 2010, followed by the approval of the Final Railway Scheme of Sungai Buloh – Kajang (SBK) Line on 29 June 2011. 

The first line of the network will run from Sungai Buloh in the northwest of Kuala Lumpur, to Kajang in the southeast of the Federal capital. The Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line will cover a distance of 51 kilometers, of which 9.5km is underground. There will be 31 stations along the route and three provisional stations to be built for future development.

The line will serve a population of 1.2 million people living in areas such as Sungai Buloh, Kota Damansara , Dataran Sunway, Bandar Utama , TTDI, Section 16, Pusat Bandar Damansara, KL Sentral, Warisan Merdeka, Bukit Bintang , Pasar Rakyat ,Cochrane , Maluri , Cheras and Kajang. 

Based on the ridership forecast from 2017 up to 2026, a total 58 trains will be provided upon completion of the Sungai Buloh – Kajang line and a single train can have maximum capacity of 1200 passengers’ equivalent of 12 buses or approximately 700 cars. The expected ridership of the line is 442,000 passengers per day with the frequency of the train will be approximately one train every 3.5 minutes at peak hours. It is expected that the completion of the project will be in 2017.
