Light Rail Transit Stations
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur's first two light rail transit (LRT) lines were built on a limited budget. The c 27 miles of track serve 25 stations, many of them in challenging situations spanning over the river or existing roads. The design concept is based on the traditional Malay 'wakaf', or wayside rest-stop - a simple exposed timber structure with open sides and a layered roof. In the LRT stations this is translated into an exposed structure with minimal brick or concrete masonry walls and a layered roof consisting of metal decks supported by large-span tubular steel members.
