I HAVE been following developments of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project very closely. There have been many discussions in the media about the project, but they have mostly centred around its political and cost aspects.

Leaving the politics aside, as a transport planner, I am very impressed by the speed and wisdom of the ECRL alignment review. This is referring to the review of the crucial segment of the rail to traverse through the economically most vibrant region of the country, ie, the Greater Klang Valley, including the connection to the KL International Airport (KLIA), Port Klang and the mega Malaysian Vision Valley.
