The Dang Wangi LRT station is an underground rapid transit station, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, part of the Kelana Jaya Line.
The station was opened on June 1, 1999, as part of the line's second and latest extension, which includes the addition of 12 stations (not including Sri Rampai station), and an underground line that the Dang Wangi station is connected to. The Dang Wangi station is currently one of only five underground stations in the Kelana Jaya Line.
The station is primarily intended to serve the northeastern region of central Kuala Lumpur, as well as several office buildings northwards along the road towards the Golden Triangle, the latter additionally provided with Kuala Lumpur Monorail stations after 2003. Dang Wangi station are located close to the Capital Square mixed development.
The Dang Wangi LRT station is located less than one kilometer west from the Bukit Nanas monorail station, also located beside Bukit Nanas. Despite the distance, official transit maps designate both stations as an interchange station between the Kelana Jaya Line and the KL Monorail. Accordingly, passengers who intend to switch to either lines must walk along Jalan Ampang to reach either stations.
The Dang Wangi station, like all other underground Kelana Jaya Line stations, is of basic construction consisting of only three levels: the entrance level at street level, and the concourse and platform levels underground. All levels are linked via escalators and stairways, while elevators are additionally provided between the concourse level and the platform level. The station contains only one island platform for two tracks of opposite directions, with floor-to-ceiling platform screen doors sealing the platform from the tracks.
The station has only one entry and exit point from street level, adjoining a massive low-rise structure behind the vestibule.
