Bids for KL-Singapore high-speed rail project still ‘wide open’

Gamuda is expected to benefit from the rollout of several rail-based mega projects.

KUALA LUMPUR: The proposed Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail project is still “wide open” to all and both countries will choose the builder based on merits from tender expected to be opened in December.

MyHSR Corp chief executive officer Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal, who was speaking at a conference here yesterday, said it’s not true when some countries had claimed the project is already in the bag.

Malaysia and Singapore will hold a second industry briefing in London on Sept 26 to share more information on the high-speed rail project.

The briefing was aimed at sharing updates and in response to industry’s queries following first briefing in July. It would also enable participants to have face-to-face meetings.

About 40% of participants at the July briefing were from Europe, 20% from Malaysia, 10% from North America, 15% from Singapore, 10% from Asia and 5% from Australia.
