PUTRAJAYA: The proposal for the realignment of the East Cost Railway Link to pass through Nilai was just a suggestion, says Transport Minister Anthony Loke.
"I was just making a suggestion in the Negri Sembilan state assembly.
"Ultimately, the decision is up to the Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd and the Malaysian Communications Construction Company Ltd, and I am not involved in the decision-making," he said to reporters on Wednesday (April 24).
Loke said he raised the matter because he felt the ECRL alignment should be maximised.
He said he suggested that there be a station in Nilai for integration purposes as there was already a KTM Komuter station in the area.
At the Negri Sembilan state assembly on Tuesday, Loke – who is the assemblyman for Chennah – made the proposal. He said having an ECRL station there would help in the development of Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0.
