HSR project: Not the end of the line

Many U-turns: The KL-SG HSR booth at the Malaysian International Trade Exhibition Centre in 2017. The project has undergone a series of amended decisions under different governments.

THE Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) bilateral agreement was officially terminated after the top leaders of Malaysia and Singapore agreed to let the deal lapse on New Year’s Eve, but this mega project may not be dead and forgotten.

In fact, this economically significant rail project may be revived once Malaysia sorts out its economic predicament brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic and political chaos.
