The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail was initiated through the Economic Transformation Programme to transform Malaysia into a high-income nation. The Project is a joint collaboration between MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR) of Malaysia and Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore.
The KL-SG HSR is an alternative travel mode between two of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant and fast-growing economies aimed to facilitate seamless travel between the two capital cities, enhance business linkages, and connect the peoples of both countries closer together.
The mega project will include 7 stations in Malaysia – Bandar Malaysia, Bangi-Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri, before reaching its final destination in Jurong East, Singapore, via a scenic coastal route.
The connectivity will enable businesses to be more productive and access a broader market place, while the public will enjoy an improved travel experience of shorter travel time (90 minutes from KL to Singapore) and a comfortable ride, through the HSR’s city centre to city centre connection along the corridor.
The KL-SG HSR is more than just a transportation project – it is an impetus towards socio-economic development in Kuala Lumpur and the intermediate cities along the HSR corridor, starting with economic clusters centred around each station. This will ultimately change how people live, work and travel entirely.
The economic and social benefits derived from linking these 2 cities will bring about massive development potential and the geographical concentration of clusters of businesses and employees will result in an enlarged pool of skilled and semi skilled talent.
KLSGHSR link is expected to cut the travel time between the two cities to just 90 minutes.
A bunch of folks who are extremely enthusiastic and excited about the prospect of having a high speed train in our country, and we’ll bring you up to date on whats happening with the project
