Infrastructure consulting company Aecom has announced the official opening of the Klang Valley mass rapid transit (MRT) Putrajaya Line (KVMRT Putrajaya Line) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Along with the existing urban rail networks, the KVMRT Putrajaya Line will serve as the backbone for the public transport system in the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley region.

AECOM is the lead consultant for the 13.5km underground works package. In this capacity, the firm handled a multi-disciplinary detail design team comprising local and international consultants.

It is also the civil and structural engineering detailed design consultant for six of the underground stations, as well as the alignment and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) detailed design consultant for the complete package.

Based on its experience with Building Information Modeling (BIM), the firm’s project team coordinated with the client MMC Gamuda KVMRT and the project owner MRT to offer project solutions for the project.

It also worked with them to address the hurdles linked to underground construction in an urbanised area.
