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.
On 5 Sep 2018, the Government of the Republic of Singapore and the Government of Malaysia announced that Singapore has, in the spirit of bilateral cooperation, agreed to Malaysia’s proposal to suspend the construction of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR Project up to 31 May 2020.
