Just imagine what the RM100 million Express Rail Link (ERL) extension from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2), the low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang, will do for the low cost travellers.
Already it cost RM35 to go the KLIA MTB. It would cost another RM 3 at least to go to KLIA2 which will add up to RM 38. If the red and yellow buses are allowed to take passengers from KL Sentral to KLIA2 it would only cost them RM8. So the choice is very simple and it will only take an extra 30 minutes or less to get to KLIA2.
However the rail link is on track to be completed by year-end, says Noormah Mohd Noor, Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd Chief Executive Officer.
She said work was progressing at a feverish pace and the project was 45 per cent complete with a new car park already available at the new terminal.
On the progress of the 2.2 kilometre rail extension, she said:”The entire concrete pavement was almost complete and ready to be installed on the ballast. We have done about 400 metres of ballast at KLIA2.
The KLIA2 terminal is scheduled to commence operations in April next year.
