Malaysia and Singapore High-Speed Rail project

Laetitia Boura - 29/07/16

 

On the 19th July 2016, Malaysia and Singapore signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) project, signifying both countries’ commitment towards this iconic project.

 

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak signed the agreement contract during an official ceremony, which was held at the latter’s official residence at Sri Perdana.

 

Each country will be responsible for the development, construction and maintenance of the civil infrastructure and stations within their own domain through MyHSR Corporation for Malaysia and the Land Transport Authority for Singapore.

 

The HSR project, targeted for commercial operations in 2026, will have eight stations, namely Bandar Malaysia, Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat, Iskandar Puteri and Singapore.
The 350km rail would reduce travel time between the two countries to just 90 minutes, with speeds of over 300km per hour. 

 

The rail link reflects improved relations in recent years and both governments will call for open international tenders in August 2016 to appoint a joint development partner.
