The Port Klang Line is officially put into operation.

On March 16, 2023, the Port Klang Line was officially put into operation. Zhu Wenying, as a contributor to the construction of this urban express line, realized her wish to introduce this infrastructure project to her family.

In 2017, after graduating from university, Zhu joined the Port Klang Line project of the China Communications Construction Company (CCCC). "This express line not only connects the North to the South in Kuala Lumpur, but is also a symbol of the friendship between the people of China and Malaysia", said Zhu.

The Port Klang Line, constructed by the China Communications Construction Company, has a total length of 57.7 kilometers, including a 38.7-kilometer elevated section and a 13.5-kilometer underground section. It consists of 9 underground stations, 27 elevated stations, 1 depot, and 1 parking lot. Phase I of the project, covering a distance of 18 kilometers, started operations on June 16, 2022; Phase II, which began operation in March this year, covers a total of 39.7 kilometers. Upon the opening of the Phase II, the line realized its full operation. The daily ridership is expected to surpass 100,000 people, enabling over 2 million residents along the line to benefit from a "half-hour living circle".

Throughout the process of construction, Chinese and Malaysian constructors have worked together, accumulating valuable experience for China's tunneling "going global". In addition to promoting the export of Chinese standards, technology, management, and equipment, the project actively promotes the localization of enterprises, achieving win-win development with local companies.

Mona, a local university student, works as a safety officer in the project team. In her eyes, Chinese master Zhang Yinlong is remarkable.

"This project not only adopts European standards but also establishes a management model of 'Chinese safety director + local safety officer + local safety worker.' It integrates local safety management requirements with advanced Chinese safety management methods, providing double insurance for safety production on the Port Klang Line," said Mona.

She also highlighted that working with Chinese colleagues to build the subway in her hometown has not only allowed her to acquire technical skills and solved employment issues, but also enabled her to learn about Chinese culture.

What impressed Mona the most was the cultural and sports activities organized during major traditional festivals in China and Malaysia. "My Chinese colleagues do not treat me as an 'outsider'. Instead, they have always taken good care of me. It feels great to celebrate traditional festivals with my Chinese friends", said Mona.
