Last week, RapidKL announced that the Kelana Jaya LRT line service between the Kelana Jaya and Ampang Park stations would be suspended until 15 November. Fortunately, the Kelana Jaya LRT line resumed full services this morning (14 November) at 6.00am, one day ahead of schedule.
As commuters were outraged over the disruption of the services and the inconvenience that it caused, with one man even walking 26km just to get home.
