HSR line should be extended north to Bangkok, suggests Muhyiddin

KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has suggested that the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project be expanded north to Bangkok.

“I support the government’s plan to implement the HSR project to Johor Baru, in fact even towards the North to connect HSR from Bangkok to the Malaysia-Thailand border with private funding involving financial consortiums in the country,” he said in debating the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) in Dewan Rakyat on Thursday (Sept 30).
