China eyes Malaysia-Singapore high-speed rail project

KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – A consortium of China’s high-speed rail design, development and construction companies is hopeful of clinching the multi-billion ringgit Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail link

The consortium comprises China Railway Construction Corp Ltd (CRCC), The Third Railway Survey And Design Institute Group Corp (TSDI) and CSR Qingdao Sifang Co Ltd.

Dubbed South-East Asia’s most ambitious infrastructure project and the region’s first HSR, the 340 km link will reduce the journey over land between the two neighbours to 90 minutes from about six hours.

At a reception for a media delegation from Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei at CRCC headquarters in Beijing recently, CRCC chairman Meng Fengchao says the Chinese consortium comprises top-notch industrial experts in HSR technology with proven track record of building rail links of up to 350 kph.
