Project partner sought for Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR


    The two bodies leading the delivery of a new high-speed railway between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore are preparing to issue a tender for a Joint Development Partner for the project.

    Malaysia’s MyHSR Corporation and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) will issue a joint tender on August 22 in search of a project partner to provide “project management support, technical advice and procurement advice” on the cross-border railway.

    Bids are being requested from companies with a track record of advising large public-private partnership (PPP) infrastructure projects and comparable high-speed rail projects.

    The aim of the scheme is to reduce journey times between the two cities to just 90 minutes. The route will include eight stations, connecting six cities in Malaysia and Singapore.
