“Additionally, we will focus on repairing malfunctioning platform doors, with the first phase covering four stations (KL Sentral, Tun Sambanthan, Maharajalela, and Hang Tuah) to be completed by October. The second phase, involving seven more stations, will be finished by December,” Loke stated during a press conference at Wisma Monorail.

Improve station safety

Loke emphasized the importance of these repairs due to past incidents of passengers falling onto the tracks, highlighting the necessity for safe and reliable services for all, including visually impaired individuals.

“For the CCTV installations, we will ensure they include video analytics to address recent incidents at the stations. Identified locations will see repairs start in September,” he added.
