The Chan Sow Lin LRT station is an at-grade rapid transit station and interchange station situated in Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It serves the Ampang Line LRT.
This LRT station serves a single line that forms part of a common Ampang Line LRT route shared by both the Ampang – Sentul Timur line and Sri Petaling – Sentul Timur line and is the southernmost station in the line of this form.
The station was thus intended to serve patrons from the southern end of Pudu, the western end of Taman Maluri and the northwestern tip of Taman Miharja.
The interchange itself is named after an extended portion of Jalan Chan Sow Lin, a roadway that adjoins the main entrance of the station.
Platform design and designation in the Chan Sow Lin interchange is considerably unique. The Chan Sow Lin interchange contains two island platforms along three tracks.
|L1: Platform Level||Platform 1A: Not in use|
|Platform 1B: Not in use|
|Platform 2B: Ampang / Sri Petaling Line towards Sentul Timur|
|Platform 2A: Ampang Line towards Ampang / Sri Petaling Line towards Putra Heights|
|L2: Concourse||Faregates, Ticketing Machines, Station Control, Shops|
The interchange reuses the now defunct Federated Malay States Railway and Malayan Railway (KTM) route between Kuala Lumpur, Ampang and Salak South.
Because of this, the station is located close to several former government compounds (Public Works and Engineering Works branches) that had once connect to the KTM line, up until the line was closed during the 1990s to make way for the LRT line.
