Good progress on high speed rail project planned between KL and Singapore: PM Lee

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak have noted the good progress of the High Speed Rail project planned between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. 

Mr Lee said that a key decision for both countries to make for the project will be the locations of the end points of the rail system. 

PM Lee added that some of the potential end points in Singapore include the city centre or in the west. 

In the western part of Singapore, Tuas West and Jurong East have been mentioned as possible end points. 

Meanwhile, the end point in Malaysia is expected to be at Bandar Malaysia at Sungai Besi. 

On Iskandar Malaysia, both leaders acknowledged that there will be benefits from co-operation in manufacturing and other industrial activities. 

They noted the progress made in jointly developing industries with synergising activities in Singapore and Iskandar Malaysia by the Industrial Cooperation Work Group under the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Ministerial Committee for Iskandar Malaysia.
