Malaysia is a multi-ethnic country of 23 million people. Malays form the predominant ethnic group. The two other large ethnic groups in Malaysia are Chinese and Indians. Islam is the national religion. Bahasa Malaysia is the official language although English is widely spoken. Other languages used and spoken in Malaysia includes Chinese dialects (Cantonese, Mandarin, Hokkien, Hakka, Hainan, Foochow), Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Panjabi, Thai and several indigenous languages such as Iban and Kadazan.

Intermarriage has produced a fusion of cultures. Indigenous communities are to be found throughout the length and breadth of the country - Dayak, Iban, Kadazan, Bajau, Melanau. A small, but significant, Portuguese and Dutch community survives in Malacca. Intermarriage among these multi ethnic populations is quite common in Malaysia. In short, Malaysia is an amalgam, a melting pot of people and culture, of style and influence, that permeates all aspects of life. The diversity of the country is maintained in both its old buildings and the elegance of its ultra modern buildings. At the same time, some of these modern erections represent strides in the creation of environmentally-friendly buildings suited to the tropical climate.

Malaysia is a country with outstanding infrastructure facilities and buildings that reflect the Malaysian government's commitment to serve its people as well as draw tourists from all over the world. Malaysia not only showcases its well-constructed roadways and high-rise buildings but also prides itself in diversity.

Some of the most outstanding buildings and infra structures that dominates the back drop of Malaysia today are :


The North-South Expressway starts at Bukit Kayu Hitam in the North and ends in Johor Bahru in the South, linking all major cities on the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia between Thailand and Singapore. In addition, two other adjoining expressways complete the total 847.7 km of inter-urban toll highways referred to collectively as the North-South Expressway under PLUS( Projek Lebuhraya Utara Selatan) concession, namely the North Klang Valley Expressway and Federal Highway Route 2.

Constructed in phases over a period of seven years, the North-South Expressway was officially opened on September 8 1994 by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, signalling the coming of age of Malaysia's road transportation system. The immediate benefits of the project were most evident in reductions in congestion and travelling time experienced by expressway users, especially during festive seasons.

Other benefits in the form of economic development were perhaps less apparent in the early years but became more and more visible as new townships and industrial parks began to take shape along the length of the expressway and trade and tourism enjoyed a new era of growth. Today, the North-South Expressway connects to other major expressways such as the North-South Expressway Central Link (NSECL) and the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing (MSSC), enhancing even further the level of accessibility to the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia via major ports of entry into the country.

The North South Expressway is designed to provide a four-lane dual carriageway with provision for the construction of an additional two lanes in future. In urban areas, the number of lanes is increased to six. Lane widths vary from 3.65 metres to 3.75 metres. The width of the shoulder is 3 metres. The North-South Expressway is designed to accommodate speeds of up to 120 km/h, providing a margin of safety over the maximum speed limit of 110 km/h.

Whether one is travelling from the north or south, a trip along the super highway promises to be an interesting and exciting journey. The North-South Expressway itself is an attraction because it is one of the best asphalt and concrete highway in the world. The North-South Expressway offers a unique travelling experience and an opportunity to see Malaysia from a different perspective. The lush vegetation and scenic countryside may be something that the local people have taken for granted but they are sure to fascinate those who lived in concrete jungles or come from faraway places because these are things that they don't get to see at home.

Rest and Service Areas (RSA) are located every 60 kilometres of the Expressway and they provide food stalls, toilets, showers, public telephones, a service station, a wakaf (a shed for resting), parking area, surau (prayer room) and children's playground. At some RSA, motels and automated teller machines are also provided. For the safety of motorists using the PLUS-operated highways, the Traffic Monitoring Centre (TMC) operates 24 hours a day to assist with inquiries. The TMC can be reached on Tel: (603) 2692 0000. Emergency telephones are located every 2km along the length of the NSE. Plusronda is a complimentary 24-hour service whereby PLUS vehicles patrol the expressway and provide assistance to motorists who encounter difficulties. For instance, towing is provided to the nearest toll plaza in the event of a major breakdown. Plusronda also deals with accidents and general traffic management on the expressway.

PLUS has given much thought to making the drive a pleasant and safe one by landscaping extensively, both along the roads and on the dividers. During the day, the landscape is a pretty sight and at night, the planted dividers limit the light flash from oncoming cars on the other side of the road.

For many Malaysians and visitors, the cost of paying the toll is a small price indeed to pay for the safety, ease and comfort of driving on excellent roads.

Penang Bridge is situated in between Seberang Perai in mainland Penang and Gelugor on the Penang Island. It is an important bridge linking the mainland Penang to the Penang Island. Built in 1985 at a cost of about RM800 million. The pride of Malaysia as the longest in Asia and the third longest bridge in the world measuring at 13.5 km in which over 5 km is located on the sea. Built to withstand earthquake of up to 7.5 Richter scale. Middle vertical span of 225 meters which allow ships to pass. It has 533 spans of which 192 spans for the Bridge is above water. Constructed with a 6.2 km dual carriageway and 2.2 km three lanes at the Main span, this Bridge is the only physical link between the Mainland of Peninsular Malaysia and Penang Island. Seen from the Penang Island interchange, the channel crossing consists of elevated bridge structures known as "Cable Stayed Concrete Girders". Being famous landmark in the country. It has a total of six lanes. As concession holder of the Penang Bridge, Penang Bridge Sdn. Bhd. (PBSB) is responsible for managing, operating, upgrading and collecting toll from the 13.5 km bridge under a 25 years concession from August 15, 1993 to May 31, 2018. Since it was opened to traffic on 14 September 1985, daily traffic volume has reached over 50,000 vehicles. Penang Bridge has contributed significantly to the development of Penang both as a tourist and manufacturing centre.

Its distinctive design and features saw the Penang Bridge won awards. In 1986, it has won the Grand Award in the United States of America Engineering Excellence Competition sponsored by the Council of Consulting Engineers, Washington. In 1993, it won the FIABCI Special Award (Development and Construction Phase Category) from the International Real Estate Federation of Malaysia.

The new Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at sepang, Malaysia began in early 1990 when it became evident that the existing Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah International Airport (formerly Subang International Airport) has limited expansion capability to meet long term increase in passenger and cargo demand. The airport is built on a 10,000 hectares or 100 square kilometers or 25,000 acres agriculture land once thick with palm oil plantations which makes it one of the largest airport sites in the world. KLIA was completed in four and a half years with round-the-clock construction work, making it the fastest airport ever built, undertaken by an international workforce of 25,000 people at a cost of about US$3.5bn and commenced full commercial operations on June 28, 1998. The large size of land designated for the airport would allow the airport to expand as needed to meet present and future air traffic demands. With a rambling roof resembling white Bedouin tents, the five-level KLIA boasts the world's tallest air-traffic control tower, the biggest columnless hangar, the longest baggage conveyor belt system, biggest passenger lounge and the capacity for 25 million people a year. The airport has a Made in Malaysia, RM24 million Olympex flight information display system.

KLIA is the second airport in the world after Munich to have a special chamber to defuse explosives as part of its sophisticated fire-fighting systems. It has two decompression chambers costing RM 3.2 million to dispose of explosive materials. KLIA's fire fighting unit is the most modern in the region. It is the first in the region to secure seven Ultra Large Foam Tender (ULFT) vehicles costing RM 3.8 million each which can be operated in any condition.

Designed by renowned Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, the KLIA is a spectacular feat of construction which combines futuristic technology, Malaysian culture and the rich, tropical splendor of its natural resources, and is regarded as one of the most modern and sophisticated airports in the Asia-Pacific region. It will incorporate forms and systems suggesting advancement and modernization while at the same time, support Malaysia's cultural history. From the air, the KLIA looks like a futuristic structure hidden in a remote jungle. Encircling the airport is a tropical forest. More than a million trees and shrubs are transplanted both within and outside the large Passenger Terminal Complex. Malaysia is home to the world's oldest tropical rain forests. The KLIA is therefore often described as the "airport in the forest, forest in the airport", so flexuous would be the boundaries between the physical structure of the airport and its green ambience. K.L International Airport is a destination in itself. It is unique because it has within its boundaries all that is needed for business, entertainment and relaxation.

The 88-storey PETRONAS Twin Towers, developed as an integral part of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) project, house PETRONAS new corporate headquarters. The PETRONAS Twin Towers rise like sentinels in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Costing a whopping US$1.2bn and uniquely designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates, it rises to 1,483ft (451.9m) in height and is all of 33ft higher than the Sears Tower. Cesar Pelli, former dean of Yale University's School of Architecture, also designed Canary Wharf in London, and the World Financial Center in Manhattan, New York City.

Completed in 1997, the Twin Towers are a striking glass-and-steel combination with floor plans based on an eight-pointed star. The Towers were designed to symbolize strength and grace using geometric principles typified in Islamic architecture. The towers are also linked at the 41st and 42nd floors (175m above street level) by a 192ft-long (58.4m) double-decker skybridge - linking the two sky lobbies and facilitating the movement between the two towers. Inside the 6-storey tower retail podium, music lovers will have access to an 864-seat concert hall, the Dewan Filharmonik, a venue of architectural and acoustic distinction.
The Towers were topped-out in March 1996 and occupation began in early 1997. Tower One is currently being occupied by PETRONAS, the state-owned petroleum corporation. Tower Two is being occupied by PETRONAS associate companies while the remaining space is being leased out to multinationals.

The world's tallest building came alive when it was presented to the world amidst a display of scintillating fireworks and a spectacular light and sound show in an opening ceremony that was filled with pomp and splendor.
Situated in a prime location in the capital, the gleaming 420m Petronas Twin Towers, a symbol of the nation's soaring success, exemplified Malaysia's sky-high ambitions towards the new millennium.

Menara Kuala Lumpur, is one the most ambitious, mammoth projects ever undertaken in Malaysia, a standing statuesque in all its architectural perfections. A highly innovative combination of retail, leisure, entertainment and most of all a hi-tech center for telecommunications and acting as the country's main telecommunications and multimedia broadcasting tower.

Menara Kuala Lumpur was designed by a local firm Kumpulan Senireka Sdn. Bhd. and constructed by Wayss & Freytag under the technical advise of Ove Arup & Partners International London/Arup Jururunding Kuala Lumpur. It is one of the tallest concrete towers in the world at 421 metres and also the fourth tallest telecommunications tower in the world.
A total of 45,000 cubic meters of concrete, 5,300 tonnes of reinforcements, 1,300 tonnes of structural steel were used for the construction and the tower weighs almost 100,000 tonnes. The outer diameter of shafts varies from 24.5 meters to 13.6 meters, thickness of shaft varies from 1.4 meters to 0.6 meters. The foundation depth is at 17 meters with a maximum foundation diameter of 54 meters. It has 4 lifts serving the tower head from the ground level and a staircase with 2058 steps from the basement to tower head 11.

The head is 6 storey tall, 50 meters in diameter with floor area of 7,700 square meters housing a Revolving Restaurant( Restoran Sri Angkasa) & observation platform, technical & service floor. At the Entrance Level are Touristic Building and the Entrance Mall. There are ample parking facilities for coaches and cars.

The construction of Menara Kuala Lumpur which began on October 1991, was a 3-phase process. The first phase was the widening of Jalan Punchak and the excavation of soil from the construction site. This phase went on until 15 August 1992. On 6 July 1992, the second phase began with the construction of the foundation and basement of the tower. Approximately 45,000 cubic metres of concrete were continuously poured for 31 hours thus setting a record in the Malaysian construction industry. The foundation work that required no piling was completed by 15 April 1993.

Menara KL was officially launched by YAB Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, on October 1st, 1996. It stands majestically among the clouds as the tallest structure in South-East Asia, the tallest single standing concrete structure in the world and fourth tallest communication tower in the world.

The Sepang Circuit is located about 60km from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur and about 15km from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The circuit is linked to the city & the airport with an excellent highway system. Travelling by road on the expressway will approximately takes about 40 minutes from the city to the circuit. Street signs are clearly visible on the highway.
The Sepang Circuit is the most spectacular race circuit in the Eastern hemisphere. Built at a cost of US$120 million, the Sepang Circuit was fully completed in November 1998. Its first racing event took place on the 12th December 1998. The Sepang International Circuit is 5.5 Km. The circuit consist of one circuit within another. The main race track being 5.542km & the other option being 2.805km. Some of the most spectacular features of the circuit are the smooth & sweeping chicane capable of negotiating at speeds in excess of 200kph. The fastest part of the circuit is the straight between T15 and T1 or usually known as the home straight. Speed can reach up to about 350kph. Spectators would be advised to wear ear plugs especially on the grandstands. The pits consist of many spectacular features such as built-in team office & conference area with the latest hi-tech gizmo.

In a typical F1 Grand Prix it runs for a total of 56 laps. The track has almost no gradients and includes two very long straights where speeds are in excess of 180 mph. The track is known as a car breaker and any car with a reliability problem will most probably not see the end of this race. There are many places for overtaking on this circuit and this often leads to very compelling racing. Being the best circuit in the World, its facilities are rated superb by drivers and experts. In 1999, the inaugural Malaysian Grand Prix attracted 78,000 spectators and an estimated television audience of 600 million, and earned Malaysia more than $130 million. The debut race will always be remembered for a controversial Ferrari disqualification, when Irvine and Schumacher finished 1st and 2nd, only to have their points taken away over a disagreement about the size of the F399's bargeboards. The points were eventually reinstated after an FIA hearing in Paris, just prior to the final race of the 1999 world championship.

Putrajaya is the new Administrative Centre of the Federal Government of Malaysia taking the capital city away from Kuala Lumpur. A move by the Malaysian Government to bring the national administrative machinery from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya and leaving Kuala Lumpur as the country's financial and commercial capital. This is in line with the Government's policy to provide a more balanced development away from Kuala Lumpur. It is a decision motivated by life in Kuala Lumpur and ensure continued growth in the Klang Valley. Situated along the South Growth Corridor within the Multi Media Super Corridor (MSC), the development of Putrajaya marks a new chapter in the history of modern city planning in Malaysia. It is set to be a model garden city with sophisticated information network base on multimedia technologies. Termed as Malaysia's first Intelligent Garden City, Putrajaya will become a vital development catalyst due to the role it will assume as a model city as the nerve centre of the nation and an ideal place to live, work, conduct business and engage in sports and recreational activities.

Supporting the MSC is a high capacity, fully digital telecommunications infrastructure designed to the highest international standards in capacity and reliability. Putrajaya will use multimedia technologies to become an electronic administrative centre. Interdepartmental communications and interactions with the public will be conducted via electronic and multimedia channels. The development of Putrajaya and its twin city, Cyberjaya, will position the MSC competitively in the international arena.

Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,581 hectare spread. Its Master Plan is designed along an axial tangent which runs from the northeast to southeast taking full advantage of the natural surroundings. Its undulating terrain treats visitors and residents to commanding vistas of the environment. About 40% of Putrajaya is natural. Lush greenery, botanical gardens are spread across the landscape enhanced by large bodies of water and wetlands. Five confluences meet at the north forming a main waterway which flows across the city area.

Putrajaya is divided into two major areas, Core Area and the Peripheral Area, where the separation is via a large lake. The Core Area of Putrajaya, covers a total area of 1069 hectares, is divided into five precincts, namely the Government Precinct, Commercial Precinct, Civic & Cultural Precinct, Mixed Development Precinct, and Sports & Recreational Precinct, linked by a distinctive 4.2km long boulevard. The boulevard will form the spine of the Core Area and will stretch across the central island linking it with the rest of the city. The boulevard will be the main venue for national celebrations, festive and cultural events. The precincts are identified by their predominant economic activities. The Peripheral comprises 15 precincts of various sizes. 12 of the 15 precincts make up the residential neighborhoods. The planning and design of Putrajaya's residential areas is intended to foster a sense of identity through the neighborhood focal points, landscaping and the treatment of the public realm. A total of 67,000 homes of varying ranges, sizes, types and densities have been planned for all income sectors. Residential living in Putrajaya will offer a new experience where nature and technology will work in harmony for the benefit of the community. Most precincts will have community and neighborhood centres, parks, places of worship and many other state-of-the-art public amenities. Among the facilities provided in the residential areas are schools, hospitals, shopping centres, mosques, multipurpose halls, learning centres and neighborhood parks.

Construction began in August of 1995 and it was touted as Malaysia's biggest real-estate project and one of South-East Asia's largest. Built during the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis and opened in 1999. It is expected to be completed in 2010. The scale of the Putrajaya project is grandiose. Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,581 hectares in Sepang, Selangor, within the Multi Media Super Corridor. Putrajaya is located 25km south of the old capital city of Kuala Lumpur and 20km north of the new Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang. You can reach Putrajaya using expressways, urban highways and rail. Putrajaya will be developed as a 37,000-acre Garden City metropolis. The first of three phases will cost about US$1.3bn. The final cost is projected to be US$8.1bn.

On February 1, 2001, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad declared Malaysia's new administrative capital of Putrajaya a Federal Territory. A ceremony to hand over control of the Putrajaya township on Kuala Lumpur's southern verge from Selangor state authorities to the federal government. Putrajaya, is Malaysia's third federal territory. The others are Kuala Lumpur, the country's largest city with of 1.4 million people, and the eastern city of Labuan.

The Multi Media Super Corridor is an ambitious plan engaged by Malaysia to create Southeast Asia's Silicon Valley bound by a fiber-optics network, providing high-speed computer links between Cyberjaya, Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the new administrative capital Putrajaya. All in all, Malaysia has committed a massive RM48bn in investment for the Multi Media Super Corridor hailed as Malaysia's stepping stone to a developed-nation status by 2020. The Malaysian government has set a target of attracting 50 world-class companies to the MSC by 2003.

Vendors from the information superhighway, from microchip designers and programmers to electric publishers, television and movie production houses and Internet service providers can set up shop within the corridor.

Malaysia's Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir, described the corridor as "a global test-bed" for the new roles of government, new cyber laws and guarantees, collaboration between government and firms, companies and companies, new broadcasting, new types of entertainment, education and delivery of health care.

The area gazetted as the Multi Media Super Corridor measures 15 kilometers wide and 50 kilometers long, roughly the size of Singapore. Located 30km south of the capital, Kuala Lumpur, this corridor stretches from the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), down south to the the future federal administrative city Putrajaya and the site of the region's largest international airport, the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Two Smart Cities are being developed in the Corridor; Putrajaya, the new seat of government and administrative capital of Malaysia where the concept of electronic government will be introduced; and Cyberjaya an intelligent city with multimedia industries, R&D centers, a Multimedia University and operational headquarters for multinationals wishing to direct their world- wide manufacturing and trading activities using multimedia technology. Together, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya will form the nuclei of the Multi Media Super Corridor.

Westport is not just a port; it is a concept. It was found on the firm believe that, just like an airport, a seaport, too, could have a landscaped environment, be highly efficient, with little or no delays, and make use of state-of-the-art technologies. Within a span of eight years, Westport has managed to revolutionise port industry, not just in Malaysia, but in the region as well. Once, there was only Singapore, which served as the load centre of Malaysia, and the transhipment hub of South East Asia. Westport changed that; for the first time there was a Malaysian port that had the facilities and capacity to reverse the trend of Malaysian cargo going via Singapore.

And thanks to Westport, Port Klang, where Westport is located, became among the busiest container ports of the world, ranking 12th last year. This year, Port Klang is forecasted to handle 4.5 million TEUs. Westport has many other firsts. For instance, it was the first Malaysian port to be included in the Asia's top 10 Container Terminals list. It is also the first Malaysian Flexiport with multi-terminals, each dedicated to handling specific cargo types; first Malaysian fastport, meeting the fastport standards in 1997; and first Malaysian garden port, which has over 300 varieties of ferns, flowering plants, trees, and shrubs.

Ninety five percent of the world cargo continues to travel by sea. And Malaysia, being a heavily trade dependent country that imports and exports billions of dollars worth of cargo every year, requires a heavy use of the ports. Thus far, Malaysian has made up about twenty percent of the cargo flowing through the port of Singapore. In 2001, this volume was estimated at about 3 million TEUs, a figure which elucidates the potential local cargo volumes available for Malaysian ports.

In light of these opportunities, Westport has embarked on an expansion plan to remain competitive by ensuring that it has the necessary capacity, efficiency and reliability. Plans for expansion revolve around the construction of an additional 2,400 meters of container berth, to bring the total container berth length to 4,400 meters by mid 2005. Berth expansion has been augmented by the completion of two new container yards, increasing the port's total storage capacity from its present capacity of 2.4 million TEUs. Since its launch in 1994, Westport has flourished to become a facility to be reckoned with, not only within the region but throughout the world. Westport is being developed with the view of making it the transhipment megahub of the new millennium and the national gateway of Malaysia.

To these end, Westport has incorporated operations that are geared towards being procedureless and paperless, hassle-free and using state-of-the-art technology to ensure all requisite elements are in place to position Westport as the Port of the Future.


PERUSAHAAN OTOMOBIL NASIONAL BERHAD or PROTON was incorporated on May 7, 1983 to manufacture, assemble and sell motor vehicles and related products, including accessories, spare parts and other components.

PROTON produced Malaysia's first car, the Proton SAGA, commercially launched on July 9, 1985 by Malaysian Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

Malaysia’s national car, the Proton Saga, is more than a motor-vehicle. It symbolises the determination of the nation to shake off its traditional status as a producer of primary commodities and to emerge as a member of the community of industrialised nations. First mooted in 1981, the project became a reality in September 1985. Today, Malaysia is the proud producer of many more models, such as the Proton Perdana, Proton Wira, Proton Iswara, Proton Satria, Proton Tiara, Kancil, Rusa and the Kenari.

Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn. Bhd. was set up in 1992 to realise Malaysia’s aspiration for a second national car, an affordable, compact and practical car for the growing motoring population. The manufacture of the second national car is reflective of the country’s vision to be a fully developed nation by the year 2020, through the enhancement of the nation’s technological competency in the area of automobile manufacturing.

The Main Plant which is located in Shah Alam, with an area of 923,900 sq metres, was originally designed for a capacity of 80,000 units per year. In 1997, capacity increased to 230,000 units per year with the construction of the Medium Volume Factory which is next to the Main Plant. Now the Shah Alam factory is capable of producing 240,000 vehicles per year.

PROTON cars are making their mark internationally as competitive and innovative automobiles. They are now being exported to 50 countries including the highly competitive United Kingdom and continental European markets. With concerted and unswerving commitment from customers, business associates, shareholders, government agencies and employees, PROTON is realising its goal of being an internationally successful Malaysian automotive manufacturer. It is achieving this by being customer oriented and by producing competitively priced and innovative products. Thus, it is contributing to Malaysia's attainment of Vision 2020.

With a booming economy comes increased car ownership and traffic congestion. The Government has taken steps to alleviate this escalating problem with the implementation of the Light Rail Transit System or LRT. The LRT system will form the central feature of an integrated transportation network, combining with feeder buses and commuter rail services to offer an efficient alternative to the current limitations of road travel.

The Malaysian capital has a new four line metro system. Kuala Lumpur's light rail transit (LRT) system connects some key districts where banks, offices, hotels and shopping malls are concentrated. Although it's called LRT (Light Rail Transit) it is a fully independent metro network. There are three lines operated by different companies. A company called STAR (Sistem Transit Aliran Ringan Sdn Bhd) manages the 27-km track that comprises of a north-south line and another going eastward. PUTRA (Projek Usahasama Transit Ringan Automatik Sdn Bhd) runs the 29-km line that connects the city's northeastern section to the west. The two intersect in the central financial district at Masjid Jamek. The PRT MONORAIL. a RM1.18 billion KL Monorail privatisation project is an inner-city public transit system that serves the central business, hotel and shopping district of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The 8.6km long, dual guideway, straddle-beam elevated monorail system will begin from the Pekeliling Bus Terminal in the north, pass through Kuala Lumpur's 'Golden Triangle' before reaching KL Sentral in Brickfields. Fully elevated with 11 stations, the KL Monorail is capable of handling up to 20,000 passengers per hour per direction, operating at up to 2 minutes headway between trains.


PUTRA (Projek Usahasama Transit Ringan Automatik), operates a 29 km automated LRT which looks more like a hybrid LRT-full metro. Beginning revenue service in 1998, the city's subway section opened in 1999. PUTRA claims to be the world's longest, fully automated LRT. Each of the vehicles used are powered by two linear induction electric motors, which keep noise levels to a minimum. The vast majority of the system is above ground, with 4.4 km and 5 stations in tunnel and 19 elevated.
