Selecting the two consortia follows the completion of MyHSR’s project delivery partner (PDP) tender, which covers planning, construction, testing, and commissioning. Contracts will be awarded once negotiations between parties have concluded.

MyHSR CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said: “The PDPs will bring both local and international experience, through their own experience in building railways in the country and through partnerships with HSR experts, and together, we will build the KL-SG HSR project.”

MyHSR is in charge of delivering the high-speed line’s section in Malaysia. SG HSR, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Land Transport Authority of Singapore, will build the stretch in Singapore.
