I strongly urge Prasarana and those involved in the extension of the KJ line to build the new stations to cater for an 8 carriage operation.
That would probably be a good idea for the future. Please ensure that you include that in the comments that you send to the Department of Railways.
The big challenge is the expansion of the other train stations in the line – easy enough for the elevated stations but highly challenging for the underground ones.
