MAMMOTH infrastructure projects are often pushed to the sidelines in times of national crisis, such as the Covid-19 pandemic that is currently wreaking havoc on the economies and healthcare sector of countries worldwide.

Stretching 665km, it would carry six-car electric train sets that can travel at speeds of up to 160km/h, servicing 20 passenger and freight stations along its route. Its overall alignment was designed to improve connectivity between the west and east coasts of the peninsula while leveraging the potential for tourism, industrial, commercial, and logistical growth along its major corridors.
