1. It's Time for a New Artery Through Kuala Lumpur.

 

Kuala Lumpur, one of the largest cities in Southeast Asia, is growing rapidly in recent years.
Downtown Kuala Lumpur is full of skyscrapers, yet, on the outskirts, there are still areas which lack development.
As a result, the roads from the outskirts to downtown are congested every day.
The Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit, or the KVMRT,
 is a major national urban transit project to ease traffic congestion and to encourage urban development.
Meidensha is supporting this new railway line with the power supply system.

The KVMRT spans approximately 51 kilometers east to west across Kuala Lumpur, from Sungai Buloh to Kajang.
