Misnomer



This is KL Sentral. To the southwest of the Google Earth grab, is the so called KL Monorail KL Sentral station.

I think this is a misnomer. 140 metres, a giant carpark, a bazaar and Jalan Tun Sambanthan separate these two stations.



Currently, these two buildings, although disconnected, are recognized to form what we call KL Sentral.

I propose that the KL Monorail station be renamed something else. Maybe Brickfields?



This sort of integration, ala Malaysia Boleh, is misleading. At least other interchanges like the Bank Negara - Bandaraya and the Dang Wangi - Bukit Nenas ones are abit more honest.

To the powers that be, please update your maps and signages!

the big carpark is supposed to be the 2nd phase of KL sentral (part of the KL sentral masterplan), which house shopping complex etc. So, i guess later on, the so called KL sentral monorail will directly connect to the real KL sentral building. The question is, why dont they have a masterplan which INCORPORATE KL monorail itself. What a lousy designer.
