mrt ( mass rapid transit ) (malaysia)

mass rapid transit, better known with its acronym "mrt") is a planned 3-line mass rapid transit system in the greater kuala lumpur (part of klang valley region) conurbation in malaysia. it envisages a "wheel and spoke" concept comprising two northeast-southwest radial lines and one circle line looping around kuala lumpur.

the mrt lines, when completed, will be operated as components of the klang valley public transport system.

the "mrt" will not only significantly increase the current inadequate rail network but will also serve to integrate the existing rail networks and alleviate the severe traffic congestion in the greater kl metropolitan area. the proposal was announced in june 2010 and was approved by the government of malaysia in december 2010. construction of the first line commenced in july 2011. the project also represents one of the economic entry point projects identified for the klang valley "national key economic area" under the economic transformation programme by the malaysian government.

the mass rapid transit corporation sdn bhd (mrt corp), founded in september 2011, has been appointed by the government as the official and asset owner of the project. prior to the founding of the corporation, the project was managed by prasarana malaysia berhad (prasarana).




megastructures is a documentary television series appearing on the national geographic channel in the united states and the united kingdom, channel 5 in the united kingdom, france 5 in france, and 7mate in australia.

each episode is an educational look of varying depth into the construction, operation, and staffing of various structures or construction projects, but not ordinary construction products.

generally containing interviews with designers and project managers, it presents the problems of construction and the methodology or techniques used to overcome obstacles. in some cases (such as the akashi-kaikyo bridge and petronas towers) this involved the development of new materials or products that are now in general use within the construction industry.

megastructures focuses on constructions that are extreme; in the sense that they are the biggest, tallest, longest, or deepest in the world. alternatively, a project may appear if it had an element of novelty or are a world first (such as dubai's palm islands). this type of project is known as a megaproject.

the series follows similar subjects as the history channel's modern marvels and discovery channel's extreme engineering; covering areas of architecture, transport, construction and manufacturing. Discovery Channel 2017
