When the train brake system failure alarm was triggered at 10.26am, all passengers were evacuated orderly at Pasar Seni station; with the operation control centre ordering for the empty train to be dispatched to pocket track at Universiti Station. 

The train was stopped as it approached Bangsar station when technicians detected suspicious odour from under the carriage. Power was de-energised between Bangsar and Abdullah Hukum stations to allow roving technicians to work on immediate rectification for the stalled train to be taken safely to the pocket track and allow normal service to operate.  

“While the engineering team was working on the rectification works, service between Pasar Seni and KL Gateway University stations continued on a single track. Longest waiting time recorded during this period was 15 minutes at Masjid Jamek Station,” Rapid KL said in a statement today. 

A rescue mission was called with a train sent to the scene for coupling exercise to push the stalled train to the pocket track at University station.  

Services for the LRT Kelana Jaya Line resume normalcy at 11.45am.
