Arup to design new urban rail system in Kuala Lumpur

Arup has been appointed as the underground reference design consultant for a project to create a 52.2km rail line in Malaysia.

It will work on the Klang Valley MRT SSP Line 2 – also known as the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line (SSP Line) – and has been appointed by the Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp). Around 39km of line will run overground, the underground section will be 13.5km long.

The line will have 39 stations, 10 of which will be underground. Arup will be doing the reference design for these 10 underground stations and the fitting out of the Tun Razak Exchange Station. In addition, it will produce reference designs for all the other operational buildings and structures and helping put together the tender process for underground construction packages.

Arup managing director Wan Anuar Wan said: “Our involvement in some major infrastructure projects in Malaysia such as the Kelana Jaya LRT, Penang Second Bridge, Guthrie Corridor Expressway and STAR LRT, puts us in good stead to deliver the underground design for the SSP Line in an efficient and sustainable way.”
