The negotiation to establish a high speed rail link between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore has been revived, said Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, Nancy Shukri.

The talk was initially planned to start from October but it has been delayed to December instead. The talk serves as a negotiation platform to solve legal and technical issues in building the high speed rail link.

Final detail on the track alignment as well as other technical specifications are still pending mutual agreement from both Malaysian and Singaporean side.

The project is targeted to be completed by 2020 with cost of about RM 40 bil.
