High-speed railwayMalaysia and Singapore will be calling for a joint tender on August 22 to appoint a development partner for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail project, Malaysia’s project holding MyHSR and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a statement issued on August 19.

“The partner is expected to provide project management support, technical advice and procurement advice relating to the high-speed railway systems and operations,” the release said, adding that “t will also develop the technical and safety standards to be adopted for the project.”

According to the release, the tender is open to firms who have advised on large public private partnership infrastructure projects including high-speed railway projects of similar size and complexity. They may also be companies with experience in providing project management, technical, commercial or legal advisory services related to such projects.

The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail line will run for 350 kilometers, with 335 kilometers in Malaysia and 15 kilometers in Singapore, and on two tracks going in opposite directions. It will comprise eight stops in total: Singapore/Jurong East, Iskandar Puteri, Batu Pahat, Muar, Ayer Keroh, Seremban, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur/Bandar Malaysia.

However, with the exception of Bandar Malaysia and Jurong East, the precise locations of the other six stations have yet to be fixed, MyHSR said, because land acquisition, assessing soil conditions and social impact and other technical parameters are not finalised yet.

Construction is scheduled to take place from 2018 to 2025, followed by testing, commissioning and finally launch a year later. The journey will take 90 minutes at tops speeds of 300 km/h.
