T’gganu ECRL at 55% progress

KUALA TERENGGANU: The construction progress of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project in Terengganu has reached 55.21%, says Malaysia Railway Link Sdn Bhd.

Its chief executive officer Datuk Seri Darwis Abdul Razak said the construction of the 275km-long alignment is on schedule and is expected to be completed by December 2026.

It involves the building of four passenger stations in Jerteh, Bandar Permaisuri, Kuala Terengganu and Kemasik, while the stations in Dungun and Chukai will be used for both passenger and cargo purposes.

“Construction work for the entire 665km ECRL line from Kota Baru of Kelantan to Port Klang in Selangor is at a progress level of 40.81%.

“The 275km route in Terengganu is the longest compared to the other three states – Kelantan, Pahang and Selangor,” Darwis said at a breaking of the fast event with ECRL workers here on Sunday, Bernama reported.
