The MRT has always
presented itself as a safe system to travel in. So far, this
has been affirmed by the MRT project owner, the contractors
who built the MRT and even the government, and the LRT has
since been able to live up to that reputation.
Based on reputable project owner and existing LRT system, all
station staff and train officers are trained to respond
effectively to an emergency in the MRT system. There are
regular scheduled exercises between MRT and safety and
emergency agencies to familiarize the emergency crews with the
layout and procedures that are required in any incident.
The exercises are normally held outside MRT service hours to
minimize inconvenience to the public.
Safety notices in both English and Bahasa Malaysia are also a
common sight at MRT stations and inside MRT trains.
State of the art tunnelling
methods will be deployed during the construction of the MRT.
The use of modern Slurry and EPB tunnel boring machines (TBMs)
will make tunneling in Kuala Lumpur safe. These pressurised
face machines make tunnelling possible and in prevention of
tunnel face collapse where geology is soft, waterlogged sandy
or silty soils, in soft clays and in mixed face conditions
where soft soils meet rocks in the same tunnel profile.
During the constructions phase of
KL MRT, if you need to enquired about any safety regulations of
the MRT construction site, kindly refer to the project owner as stated
