Singapore’s Land Transport Authority is to conduct an engineering feasibility study into government plans to construct a new high-speed rail link to Kuala Lumpur.
The study will look at possible routes and connectivity with three potential terminal station locations around Tuas West, Jurong East and the city centre
The tender for the study, which is to be completed in the first quarter of 2015, was called today (April 11).
In February 2013, Singapore’s Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, and Malaysian Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak set out plans for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) link.
The line is designed to cut the current journey times between the cities to 90 minutes.
LTA has said the consultant picked to carry out the research will also need to look at the impact high-speed rail would have on the current public transport network.
