Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail

High Speed Rail

The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) is a strategic project between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore that aims to facilitate seamless travel between the two capital cities, enhance business linkages, and connect the peoples of both countries closer together. With terminus stations in Kuala Lumpur's Bandar Malaysia and Singapore's Jurong East, the HSR link is expected to cut the travel time between the two cities to 90 minutes.


LTA and MyHSR jointly conducted an Industry Briefing on 5 July in Singapore – which was attended by close to 400 participants from 165 international and local entities. The briefing welcomed participants from across the entire High Speed Rail value chain, including suppliers and integrators of rolling stock and system, network operators, engineering and legal consultants, financiers and investors, operators and construction companies.

Following the briefing, further face-to-face meeting have also been scheduled upon the request of the participants to facilitate discussions and obtain feedback on the briefing topics. The feedback received will inform the ongoing design of the procurement plan and tender specifications.


The AssetsCo will be jointly procured by both LTA and MyHSR, in an open, fair and transparent manner. The AssetsCo tender is targeted to be called by 4Q2017.
