KL Monorail fully back in operation as of 5pm, May 8

Rapid Rail has announced that all services on the KL Monorail have resumed as of 5pm this evening (Wednesday, May 8), with trains running at up to seven minutes interval during peak hours. The rail service had been disrupted since yesterday evening due to a fallen tree on Jalan Sultan Ismail near Concorde Hotel, which saw part of the tree falling on to the monorail track.

As a result of the blockage, the rail operator announced yesterday evening that Monorail services at four stations between Hang Tuah and Medan Tuanku stations had been suspended. The four stations closed were Bukit Nanas, Raja Chulan, Bukit Bintang and Imbi.

In the interim period following the closure, the rail operator deployed shuttle buses at Hang Tuah and Medan Tuanku to bridge the gap. The bus shuttle service has now ended with the resumption of Monorail services.

The company said that all clearing and repair work carried out was completed at 5.55 am this morning, and that it had also conducted a thorough and detailed examination of the stretch to ensure the track was stable and safe for operation.
