ECRL facing new risk from Thai landbridge plan

MALAYSIA needs to cast its worrying politics aside and speed up the development of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), if it does not want this RM50bil landbridge project to be made irrelevant by a similar Thai southern plan.

The multibillion dollar landbridge plan, touted as a game changer for Thailand and slated to complete by 2027, will carry major economic and geopolitical implications for Malaysia and Asia.
