Siemens Mobility awarded signaling contract for Klang Valley Double Track 

Improving Efficiency and Reliability of Klang Valley Route
The KVDT2 commuter rail route first started operations 25 years ago and served 29 stations across the suburban areas of Klang Valley covering Salak Selatan Station to Seremban, and from Abdullah Hukum Station to Pelabuhan Klang Station. To improve the reliability, availability and passenger experience of this key commuter route, as well as shorten the wait times and maximise energy saving capabilities, the government launched the rehabilitation project to upgrade the KDVT infrastructure. In addition, it is developing a key transport network for large volumes of passenger and freight commute.
This rehabilitation project involves replacing the 25-year-old tracks with new foundation, upgrading the communication systems, as well as refurbishment of stations.  
Future-proof signaling systems enable trains to operate with optimal efficiency
The systems Siemens will be providing consist of railway automation solutions that will ensure maximum innovation, speed, reliability and sustainability. These solutions include:
  • Trackguard Westrace Mk II, a safe, secure, highly flexible and future-proof interlocking system suitable for urban and mainline applications. Its processing power makes it possible to manage any kind of installation, including multiple I/O options, and reduce operating costs with its predictive maintenance possibilities whilst providing versatility in convenient scaling and enhancing reliability. This same interlocking system will also be deployed in the Klang Valley LRT3 (Shah Alam LRT line) and Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System [RTS]
  • Clearguard ACM 250, Siemens’ latest axle counting system which offers a more digital and economical solution for both standalone and larger, holistic projects. It also includes a redundant communication network for increased availability, and
  • Sigmaguard LED Style Signal
“The Siemens future-proof signaling technologies will aid Malaysia’s government to make public transport an important and preferred mode of transport, while alleviating traffic congestion and improving road traffic to be ready for the city’s development plans. These Siemens rail technologies will also alleviate environmental concerns which high road traffic is contributing to. The signaling system will also greatly improve the reliability and availability of train services, and ensure the safety and comfort of the passengers,” said Michel Obadia, CEO of Siemens Mobility Asia-Pacific.  
Supporting the growth plan of Malaysia
This project builds on the already well-established relationship Siemens Mobility has with Malaysia. The KVDT2 will be operated and managed by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (“KTMB”). This project is part of the Malaysian government’s plan to create a robust infrastructure with seamless connections, supporting and creating multiplier effects which will boost the nation’s economic growth.  
In addition to the KVDT2 project, Siemens Mobility has also been awarded with the contracts to:
  • Implement a Trainguard MT Communications-Based Train Control (“CBTC”) signalling system for the Klang Valley LRT Line 3 (Shah Alam LRT line),
  • Design, install, and commission a CBTC signaling system and Platform Screen Door system on the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit Link (RTS), and
  • Provide technical support on comprehensive maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) Level 3 & Level 4 of traction motor, main transformer and main converter for KTMB SCS (Class 92) and ETS 1 (Class 93) Trains
