Phase 1 of the PY Line will consist of 12 stations from Kwasa Damansara MRT Station to Kampung Batu MRT Station. The remaining link to Putrajaya Sentral station from the Kampung Batu station is part of the second phase of the project.

The remainder of the MRT Putrajaya line from Kampung Batu to Putrajaya Sentral is scheduled to open under Phase Two in January 2023 and the construction progress of the whole line is at 87%.

The Putrajaya line is the second line of the Klang Valley MRT project.

The first line was the Kajang line, which started operations in July 2017.

The total construction cost of the Putrajaya line is RM30.53bil.

Users will still have to wait another 18 months for the rest of the 28 stations on the PY line to open before they can take the MRT to Putrajaya.

Like the Kajang Line, the PY Line will also be operated by Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd.
