The first LRT system for the western corridor of the Greater Klang Valley will see six stations being dropped as part of a cost-cutting effort to control the ballooning price tag.

In this story pinpoints the cancelled stations and also the nearest alternative stations available for those living in affected areas.

Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng said today the cost-cutting move would see the price tag of the 37km Bandar Utama-Klang LRT3 line go down from M31.65 billion to RM16.63 billion.

Other measures included swapping six-car trains for three-car ones, cutting down the total trains from 42 to 22, reducing the size of the stations and ditching costly acceleration techniques that will extend the completion date from 2020 to 2024.

Lim also said the new train line will be able to cope with the ridership demand until 2035, despite the cost-cutting measures.

The complete list of stations, including cancelled ones, is as follows:
