Project Summary


UEM Builders was the main facilities contractor for the Kuala Lumpur Light Rail Transit System 2 (LRT 2).

The scope of work involved the construction of a 29-km track (comprising 22 km of elevated guideway, 5 km underground track and 2.5 km at grade) linking Petaling Jaya to Gombak.

The project was the construction of 24 LRT stations, of which 17 are above ground, 5 underground and 2 at grade.

The LRT 2 project presented major engineering and construction challenges, and set new standards for the Malaysian construction industry.

Piling work called for a variety of innovative solutions to suit the different terrain transverse by the LRT 2 route. The biggest challenge was the construction of two underground stations located along the Klang River in the city centre.
