Ampang Park LRT station is an LRT station in Kuala Lumpur that is served by rapidKL's Kelana Jaya Line. Ampang Park station is the last underground station on the Kelana Jaya line before the line heads above ground again at Damai LRT station. It is located opposite of Ampang Park Shopping Centre along Jalan Ampang, near the Jalan Tun Razak intersection.

This station is close to the Citibank's Malaysian headquarters, as well as the US embassy, the Singapore High Commission, the Canadian High Commission, and the British High Commission, which are all located in the area of Jalan Tun Razak, known as "Embassy Row".

History

This station was opened on 1 June 1999, as Section Two of the PUTRA-LRT system, which covers the Masjid Jamek-Gombak stretch.

Layout

The station consists of three levels, with the entrance on ground level while the ticketing area, concourse and platforms are underground. Similar to all Kelana Jaya Line underground stations, the Ampang Park station features an island platform sandwiched between two railway tracks for each direction.

Planned interchange with MRT SSP Line

Ampang Park station is planned to be either an interchange or connecting station with the MRT Sungai Buloh Serdang Putrajaya Line, scheduled to be complete by 2022. Pending the finalisation of the station design and legal issues, it could potentially see the Ampang Park mall be demolished or preserved.

When complete, Ampang Park station will probably be Malaysia's first underground-to-underground railway interchange station, along with Tun Razak Exchange.
