Cheras LRT Station
About the Station
Cheras LRT Station is a light rail transit station operated by RapidKL serving the Cheras area, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This Station was opened on July 11, 1998, along with 7 other LRT Stations in Sri Petaling Line.
Despite its name, Cheras LRT Station is not located within or close to the Kuala Lumpur township of Cheras. Rather, the Station is situated between the northern Sungai Besi region, Taman Ikan Emas and Salak South, a kilometre northwest from the nearest border to Cheras. The Station is thus more reachable to users from the aforementioned three areas, as well as Bandar Sri Permaisuri (Sri Permaisuri Town) to the south, than Cheras.
The Station's main access point faces the southeast towards Taman Ikan Emas and is accessible via Jalan Jelawat Satu (Jelawat Road One). In the beginning of its operation, the Cheras station was primarily accessible via a footbridge crossing a ditch.
• Side Platform
Ticket Vending Machine
Cheras LRT Station is a low-rise structure with two side platforms lined along two tracks for trains traveling in opposite direction. However, unlike the many subsurface stations dotted along the Miharja-Ampang route, the Cheras station was sited on a set of tracks significantly lower than subsurface stations (similar to the Cahaya Station), and only includes a single ticket area, as opposed to two for each platform, because a deep tunnel was built linking both platforms. The station also serves as a public crossing by pedestrians and motorcyclists across the Sri Petaling Line tracks between the southeast and northwest via another underground path running beneath the tracks and platforms.
The principal styling of the station is similar to most other stations in the line, featuring curved roofs supported by latticed frames, and white plastered walls and pillars.
