Kuala Selangor Branch

Share

It may come as a surprise to many today that yes, the western Selangor town of Kuala Selangor used to have a railway line linking it to the rest of the Malayan Railways network. This was reportedly the longest branch in the whole of the network. Growing competition with road transport eventually saw the line closed and dismantled between 1931 – 1934, round about the same time the Bahau – Kuala Pilah branch met the same fate for the same reason.

 

The line began near present day Padang Jawa, by the Northern bank of the Klang River not far from the site of the old Connaught Bridge. The line then snaked through what is now the very busy Klang Town before heading Northwest and eventually North towards Kuala Selangor.
