The construction work of the KL-Singapore HSR is expected to start in 2018, and will be in operation in 2026 with a total length of 350 kilometers, there are eight terminus, the trains will be running at speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour, which is also set to be one of the largest infrastructure projects in Southeast Asia.
The KL-Singapore HSR will pass through Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar and Batu Pahat; and the final station is in Iskandar Puteri, and there will be the feeder service routes connecting Jurong East Terminal in Singapore.
Until Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib mooted the economic transformation implementation plan in 2010, the government had decided to build a railway line which links Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
During the meeting in January 2013, the top leaders from both countries had agreed to construct the HSR.
This will reduce the fatigue of long distance driving, or perhaps to take HSR from Kuala Lumpur and enjoy my breakfast in Singapore, and then to play in Resorts World Sentosa, after that to come back to Kuala Lumpur for lunch.
Moreover, HSR will also bring progress to the development of Malaysia Vision Valley which covers an area of 108,000 hectare including Nilai, Seremban and Port Dickson.
The HSR project is considered settled by now, it will no doubt serve as the driving force for the property developments along the railway line.
Every time when I touch on the KL-Singapore HSR project in my speech delivered overseas, I shall have reservations as many things are not yet clear, but now the whole thing is settled.
This not only symbolize the economic take-off of the two countries, but also more foreign investors will flock in to invest in Malaysia which is the bridgehead of ASEAN., August 3, 2016 Malaysia and Singapore has signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-speed Rail (HSR) project last week, and will further sign the bilateral agreement at the end of the year.Open tender will be called next year and the HSR is expected to be in operation in 2026.Although the whole construction project takes about ten years, I personally feel that this will lead to significant changes in Malaysia’s economy; areas along the HSR which enjoy the geographical advantages and are expected to achieve greater development in various fields.Besides, the HSR will also promote the economic development of Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor.
