31 July, KUALA LUMPUR – Transport Minister Anthony Loke said the implementation of the Mass Rapid Transit Line 3 (MRT3) is postponed and not scrapped to reduce the burden of government debt.

He said the Cabinet would determine when the MRT3 construction would resume but stressed that major projects such as the MRT3 would be given priority if the country’s financial position was recovering.

Any such big decision needs to get the Cabinet’s approval.

But at present the government priority is to reduce the rate of national debt first but for crucial projects like MRT3, when the country’s financial status recovers, it will certainly be given priority to be reviewed, he told the Dewan Rakyat sitting today.

He was replying to a question from Khairy Jamaluddin (BN-Rembau), who asked the ministry to state the rationale and implication of the scrapping of public transport projects such as the MRT3.
