The high-speed rail (HSR) project connecting Singapore and Kuala Lumpur will have seven stops in Malaysia, namely Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat and Nusajaya.
While several of the proposed stations had been revealed earlier this year by Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission, they were confirmed yesterday by its chairman, Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.
Construction of the line could begin sometime next year, although the actual date has yet to be fixed. When asked about the timeline of the project, Mr Syed Hamid said construction of the rail could start in the third quarter of next year.
With the HSR, commuters can travel between Singapore and KL within 90 minutes. Including time for waiting, transfers and immigration clearance, the total journey could take around 21/2 hours.
