The best and worst interchanges of the KL metro

Standing-room only on the Laos-China Railway, new airport plan in NW Bali, revived railways (again) in the Philippines, and more construction and transport news in Southeast Asia.

Greetings from Johor Bahru. I was last here in 2018, and it was a city that was gentrifying the old town while building apartments for people who live in Singapore. I called it the Shenzhentrification of Johor Bahru. I will have some articles about JB coming up.

This week I went from Penang to KL before arriving in JB. While I was in KL I had a look at a few more metro stations. I was going to write an annual metro report, but I ended up writing about interchanges instead.

KL is building out an impressive urban rail transit network, but a lot of mistakes have been made along the way. I visited some of the worst interchanges in Southeast Asia, and also one of the best.
