Press Release: MyHSR Corp unveils concept designs for the seven KL-SG HSR stations in Malaysia
Public Inspection for KL-SG HSR to be held in November to showcase project details and obtain public feedback
MyHSR Corporation (MyHSR Corp) unveils the architectural concept designs for all seven stations for the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) in Malaysia including Bandar Malaysia, Bangi-Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri at the ‘MyStations – Transforming Malaysia’ event today.
“The designs of each station were conceptualised to reflect not only the diverse heritage, culture and identity of each city along the HSR corridor, but also demonstrates the growth vision that will be accomplished with the KL-SG HSR,” said Tan Sri Dr. Ali Hamsa, Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia and Chairman of MyHSR Corp.
The ‘MyStations: Transforming Malaysia’ event also saw the signing of the commemorative 0-0 Ground Control Point (GCP) marker plaque. This plaque will be installed at the 1st order monument in Bandar Malaysia and will form part of the GCP network used for survey works to develop a new coordinate reference system for the project. This ensures accuracy of locations and points along the HSR corridor for the purposes of identifying specific areas for land acquisition and construction.
“MyHSR Corp is committed to adhering to the highest standards in carrying out the design and construction work of the project. The unveiling of the HSR station designs and the signing of the commemorative plaque at today’s event are important milestones for the project. However, we still have a lot more to do. We will be beginning the Public Inspection exercise in November, to gather public’s feedback on the project, simultaneously in all locations along the alignment,” said Dato’ Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal, CEO of MyHSR Corp.
MyHSR Corp will begin the HSR Public Inspection from 1 November 2017 at key locations in Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor for the duration of 3 months. Local communities along the corridor are encouraged to attend the HSR Public Inspection as it serves as an avenue for the public to share feedback or raise any concerns regarding the project and the proposed alignment. The public can also reach out to MyHSR Corp via hotline at 1800-18-6477 or email at feedback[at]myhsr.com.my.
Mohd Nur Ismal added, “We look forward to working together with everyone towards achieving the targeted 2026 project completion and service operations date.”
The ‘MyStations: Transforming Malaysia’ event was attended by YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia, Federal Ministers, senior representatives from the Government and the private sector. The KL-SG HSR project, which is set to start operations in 2026, will catalyse the nation’s overall socio-economic growth while creating wider investment and job opportunities for the people in the intermediate HSR cities.
