Downscaling LRT 3 is an absurd move

Lower capacity and frequency of trains, delayed completion and reduced park and ride spots indicate a lack of vision by transport ministry.

Plus if there are supposedly more demand in the future, the finance minister said then only more money will be spent. But won't it be more expensive to buy more trains then since production costs may go up and it takes two to four years to order and build new train units?

I pity Klang residents who have to endure another four years of dust, noise and congestion. By completing the project earlier, revenue can be also collected earlier. That's another four years of wasted revenue that can be collected from fare and commercial aspects.

If let's say they decide to build more parking spots after 2024, again cost of construction will go up. Why not just build more parking spots now or just maintain the initial 6,000 parking spots? After all revenue can be collected from parking or Prasarana can even rent some unused spots for commercial purposes.

The Pakatan Harapan government must understand public transport development can't be sacrificed. The LRT 3 route is critical as it is connected to LRT Kelana Jaya line which is the busiest train line in Malaysia and the MRT SBK line, the backbone of Klang Valley rail system. Plus from 2022 onwards the MRT SBK line and Kelana Jaya LRT line will carry more passengers when the MRT SSP line operates.

I agree that some stations can be shelved along the LRT 3 route but reducing critical aspects such as station size, train cars size, frequencies and parking spots with not proper feeder bus system is a recipe for disaster when the LRT 3 operates in 2024.
