Video of the Week: What can we expect from Malaysia - Singapore high-speed rail?

Posted on Apr 14, 2017

First proposed in the late 1990s, the 350km line was expected to enter service in 2021 until this was recently ammended to 2026. The project will require the construction of a brand-new line with dedicated tracks to allow trains to travel at 270km/h. A 90 minute journey between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore is aimed to provide seamless travel between the two capital cities and enhance business opportunities. This double track line will be designed to accommodate high-speed rail and technology with eight stations. Towards the latter part of 2016 it was agreed that Singapore and Malaysia will each design, build, finance and maintain the civil works and stations effecting their own regions. Then later on this year it has been agreed that Malaysia and Singapore will jointly call tenders to oversee the whole project even after completion.
