Track work is essential to ensure the safety and integrity of the track. We sometimes need to restrict access to parts of the track to carry out maintenance and upgrading works. By closing sections of track to normal activity, we can get the work done much quicker and in a safe environment.
Track closures are usually scheduled overnight and sometimes require longer hours depending on what we do. We understand that no one likes to be disrupted. Thus, to minimise disruption, we would normally run a single track operation during the scheduled work. In other words, we need to combine the KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit services into a single service so that our passengers can still get from one place to another albeit on a slightly longer journey.
Our team carries out various track maintenance activities at different locations during non-operations hours most nights. Sometimes the work required longer track closure hours and this year they included:
We are carrying out the following activities that require longer hours in September and October 2016:
Turnouts are the “switches” or points in the track where trains are guided from one track to another.
The maintenance work we do is critical in ensuring that our train services are safe and reliable for thousands of passengers who travel with us every day. If you have any comments or suggestions, write to us at: CustomerEnquiry@KLIAekspres.com.
