Abdullah Hukum is an elevated rapid transit station in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, forming part of the Kelana Jaya Line (formerly known as PUTRA). The station was opened on September 1, 1998, as part of the line's first segment encompassing 10 elevated stations between Kelana Jaya station and Pasar Seni station (not including the KL Sentral station opened later), and the line's maintenance depot in Subang Valley ( _ms. Lembah Subang).

Location

The station is named after and neighbours "Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum", an urban village located between the station and the Klang River. In addition to serving the southeastern village, the station is also accessible from the southwestern tip of "Taman Bukit Pantai" from the station's northwest. A Malayan Railway (KTM) line leading to Port Klang station runs parallel alongside the station and connected Kelana Jaya Line tracks.

Similar to the adjoining Bangsar station, [http://ms.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haji_Abdullah_Hukum Abdullah Hukum] station is erected along "Jalan Bangsar" (Bangsar Road), further south, but is situated just over the Pantai Baharu exit of the New Pantai Expressway.

Connectivity to Mid Valley City

Despite its relatively close proximity to the Mid Valley City mixed development just 250 metres east, no proper connection is provided between Abdullah Hukum station and Mid Valley City. The current routes requires patrons walk northwards to a footbridge crossing KTM tracks, from which they may head further east to cross Klang River via a road bridge. The station is currently the closest rapid transit station to Mid Valley City, but a KTM Komuter regional rail station is located far closer to the area.

Various proposals were made to link the station to Mid Valley City, mainly via a direct pedestrian link between the station and the western tip of The Gardens, the closest and newest segment of Mid Valley City to the station. However, the proposals were commented to require proper consideration and planning before implementation, including suggestions to form a hub around the station (with a new Komuter station and a new monorail station) and rebuild the station entirely to support a larger number of patrons.cite web |url=http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.asp?file=/2007/7/30/central/18440220&sec=central |title=Skybridge plan to mall lauded |accessdate=2007-08-24 |author= M., Bavani|date=2007-07-30 |publisher="The Star" (Metro/Central section) ] Plans to clear "Kampung Abdullah Hukum" for future development, rumoured to be a new wing of Mid Valley City,cite web |url=http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.asp?file=/2007/7/31/central/18441259&sec=central |title=Goodbye to another urban kampung |accessdate=2007-08-24 |author=Christina Low |date=2007-07-31 |publisher="The Star" (Metro/Central section) ] meant the prospects of integrating the station into the development is also likely.

Design

The station's layout is somewhat consistent with other elevated Kelana Jaya Line stations, and is alike the Bangsar station. The station has three levels: The access points at street level, and the ticket area and adjoining platforms on two elevated levels. All levels are linked via stairways, escalators and elevators designated for disabled passengers.

Each of the station's two side platforms is used by trains travelling at either direction of the line, and is entirely sheltered by roofs.
