Actually the KTMB have the chance of regauging during the additional double track but never opt to proceed building the other track with normal gauge. Once the newer track is completed, they can just do (the older track) the gauge conversion to normal gauge. They can do it in stages and also if the government are interested(if they see any prospects or fast ROI), the gov can always give out loans(just like the construction of new expressways). But that seems to out of the question now. Seems like a short sighted investment.

I really can't be bothered to do all the summarising and paraphrasing as this issue have been discussed elsewhere;wash rinse and repeat. So, here:

Majestic Engineering is expected to supply new diesel multiple units to Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd in a deal worth about RM350m. The little-known company has received a letter of intent (LOI) from the Transport Ministry to supply 13 four-car train sets. The LOI for the project was awarded last month and based on direct negotiations. (BT)

Author: value_investor | Publish date: Fri, 17 Apr 2015, 10:40 AM | >> Read article in Blog website
________________________________________
Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB) has won a RM1.25bn job for Phase 1 of the Klang Valley Double Track (KVDT) rehabilitation project. It is understood that MRCB will partner little-known BMIA SdnBhd to rehabilitate the 40km stretch from Rawang to Salak South in Sungai Besi. According to sources, the letter of award was given to the MRCB-DMIA joint-venture less than two weeks ago. Interestingly, MRCB had entered into a share-swap agreement with DMIA on April 1, where it will transfer to the latter its 100% equity in Lotus Terrain SdnBhd, which will undertake the construction work of the KVDT rehabilitation project. in exchange, DMIA will transfer its 30% stake in Country Annexe SdnBhd to MRCB. (BT)


Malaysian Resources Berhad : MRCB not involved in Phase 1 upgrade of KVDT

04/18/2015 | 12:01am US/Eastern
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB) says it will not be involved in the Phase 1 upgrade of the Klang Valley Double Track (KVDT) rehabilitation project.
The group was referring to a Business Times article on Thursday titled "MRCB Wins RM1.25b KVDT Job", which stated that it will partner DMIA SdnBhd to rehabilitate the stretch from Rawang to Salak South in Sungai Besi (40km) for RM1.25 billion.
MRCB clarified in a statement yesterday that the KVDT upgrade will be undertaken by DMIA via Lotus Terrain SdnBhd, which was previously its wholly-owned subsidiary.
The property and construction group gave up its 100 per cent stake in Lotus Terrain recently by entering into a share swap agreement with DMIA, in exchange for the balance 30 per cent share in Country Annexe Sdn Bhd.
MRCB now holds 100 per cent of Country Annexe, which has a development project in Brickfields, here, opposite the Kuala Lumpur Sentral.

I would support using the wider Indian gauge.

Also, KL should look to adding HSR on the east coast line too-

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, but which is the expected opening date of the ETS service from Ipoh to Butterworth and Alor Setar?

I read 2014, then April 2015, then June 2015...
