No HSR stop at Putrajaya
BY PATRICK LEE Friday, 25 December 2015
http://www.thestar.com.my/news/natio...rain-possible/



KUALA LUMPUR: High-Speed Rail trains plying between here and Singapore will not stop at Putrajaya, MyHSR Corp confirmed.

MyHSR Corp chief executive Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said the HSR was supposed to share part of the Express Rail Link’s (ERL) track.

However, higher costs, a more complex agreement and a potential safety risk have led the Government to look at a dedicated HSR line instead.

“Using the ERL track for HSR, it becomes natural for Putrajaya to be in (the alignment).

“But after looking at certain feedback from technical experts, the Government decided to go for a dedicated HSR line,” he told The Star.

Talks are ongoing between Singapore and Malaysia for the 350km project before an international tender for it is expected to open late next year.

This would mean that the next HSR stop after KL would be Seremban.

Mohd Nur said HSR trains would travel at faster speeds than ERL coaches, which move at top speeds of 160kph now.

This, he said, would mean both trains would have to be coordinated for the same track.

Aside from paying ERL Sdn Bhd for using the track, he added that the line would also have to be modified to take HSR trains.

It is not yet known how fast trains on the KL-SG line will travel at, but most in the world now go at speeds of up to 350kph.

Mohd Nur said that while track-sharing with HSR trains was common in European countries, there was a risk of accidents.

“The number of accidents is very low, but the risk is always there,” he said.

Asked what the effects of this move would be, he said it would mean shorter travel times for riders going between KL and Seremban.

However, he said Putrajaya riders could connect with the HSR when its Malaysian terminus was built at Bandar Malaysia.

“The ERL track runs alongside Bandar Malaysia. Once we have this (HSR) service, we will talk to the Government to introduce a Bandar Malaysia stop for ERL,” he said.

The Bandar Malaysia terminus will replace the current Royal Malaysian Air Force base in Sungai Besi.

2 high-speed train services to Singapore, says operator
The Malaysian Insider January 4, 2016
https://sg.news.yahoo.com/2-high-spe...022949876.html

Both the Malaysian and Singaporean governments have come to a consensus on the alignment of the 330km high-speed rail (HSR) linking Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, and have decided on two services, one being a direct service linking Kuala Lumpur to the island republic, and another with transit stops in between.

“We are envisioning to start with two services – one that will go directly to Singapore, and another that will stop with transit services in Bandar Malaysia, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Nusajaya, and then [across the causeway to] Singapore... even with the stops in between, we will have express services that do not stop,” MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal told The Edge Financial Daily in an exclusive interview.

MyHSR Corp, which is wholly owned by the Finance Ministry, was given the mandate to develop and promote the HSR project, and is the project delivery vehicle accountable for the definition of the technical and commercial aspects of the project.

While the dedicated direct train is slated to take 90 minutes linking the two cities, the other with six transit stops in Malaysia should take about two hours, depending on the customs and immigration processes.

“As of now, the transit services will have to stop in Nusajaya, but for the direct service, you clear both customs and immigration checks [only once] in either Kuala Lumpur or Singapore... like the Eurostar between London and Paris,” Nur Ismal said.

On other key areas which have yet to be decided, such as the cost of the infrastructure project, which is said to be testing the RM70 billion mark now, Muhd Nur Ismal was non-committal and dispelled all the figures being bandied about as mere “speculation”.

“We are still in the midst of discussion with Singapore. We are trying to decide on the common grounds, the approach to tendering... this will determine if it is a government design-and-build contract or if certain parts are being done in other manners. So, it’s still not decided,” he said.

On whether there is a time frame or time limit as to when to finalise the key issues of the HSR, he said: “We have to come up with the best decisions for both countries... that are of high priority. However long it takes to get to the right decision, we will do it.”

Talks between officials of the two governments have been ongoing for some time now, but little information has been divulged. About three months ago, the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority jointly launched a request for information (RFI) exercise to test industry opinion and gauge market interest in aspects of the HSR project.

This RFI exercise was mainly to gauge the perception of the general populace, in the event certain specifics are opted for.

Due to the high contract values, there has also been much lobbying by the Japanese and Chinese HSR players, both angling for the potentially large lucrative job. In the background, the South Koreans are also jostling for the large-scale job, while a clutch of European companies are understood to be setting up a consortium, also eyeing the job.

In a presentation by China Railway in December last year, the price tag of the Kuala Lumpur to Singapore HSR was pegged at RM70 billion, up from RM65 billion a few months ago, and up from a price tag of RM40 billion in May.

Questions over the supposedly high price tag have been raised lately, as about nine years ago, in 2007, conglomerate YTL and its technical partner, Germany’s Siemens AG, put in a proposal to build the HSR or bullet train linking Kuala Lumpur to Singapore at a cost of only RM8 billion. How the price of the HSR has escalated to the current level of RM70 billion is not clear. – The Edge Markets, January 4, 2016.

Just wait for the Japanese proposal and you'll probably have a proper estimate based on study and not pulling figures out of a hat.

UPDATE: KUALA LUMPUR - SINGAPORE HIGH-SPEED RAIL LINK
Tuesday, 22 March 2016
Quote:
Checks with MyHSR Corp confirmed that Malaysia and Singapore have yet to ink the bilateral agreement for the HSR development that would link both countries’ capitals. This bilateral agreement is a prerequisite in terms of providing further details on the reportedly RM40bil project to protect the interests of both countries and potential bidders.

It was reported that this agreement was supposed to be signed at least in the first half of this year.

As of now, the request for information jointly conducted by both countries, namely, Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority, is vital to gauge market interest in the HSR, and how the market is expecting the implementation to be.

Draft alignment for high speed rail project linking KL and Singapore to be finalised soon ahead of MoU
Posted on 15 April 2016 - 01:07am
Shahrim Tamrin
http://www.thesundaily.my/news/1762262

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia will finalise the draft alignment of the high speed rail (HSR) linking Kuala Lumpur and Singapore soon in time for the signing of memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Singapore in July.

MyHSR Corp chairman Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa (pix) said bilateral negotiations with Singapore is still ongoing and the government was hoping to finalise all the pertinent details within the next 12 weeks.

"At the moment, we are finalising the draft alignment. It is almost complete but we have to work together with Singapore," he said, after unveiling the MyHSR logo at Perdana Putra Complex yesterday (April 14) evening.

At the 12th Invest Malaysia event three days ago, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the MOU on the high speed rail project was expected to be signed between the two countries by the middle of the year.

When asked about the possibility to link HSR with Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) as part of its transit points, Ali Hamsa said: "We are open to options and we will announce everything in July."

It has been proposed that HSR coastal draft alignment include Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri as transit points.

MyHSR chief executive officer Mohd Nur Ismal Kamal said the Request for Information (RFI) exercise or market sensing which was conducted late last year recorded a total of 226 expressions of interest with 98 responses received.

"The RFI input that we gathered would be used during our negotiation with Singapore so that is the
basis of what we are deciding on, to be announced in July," he said.

"The important thing is the RFI will provide towards the commercial and technical aspects of HSR that form the basis of the selections (formal tender process) later," he added.

The RFI by MyHSR is an exercise to gauge market interest and gather industry opinion on the commercial and technical aspects of the rail project.

It also include proposed commercial models and procurement approach provided by multinational firms of diverse business background such as rolling stock provider, technical consultant, rail operators, civil and construction firms and others.

theSun understands that participants of the market sensing were from HSR global fraternity including from China, South Korea, Germany, North America, Singapore, Middle East and Asia Pacific

Currently, MyHSR is conducting Request for Proposal (RFP), which is opened for technical consultancy firms with HSR and rail experience in constructing projects more than 200km of track length to submit input until May 6.

High-speed rail project timeline
25 APRIL 2016 @ 11:00 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/04/1...oject-timeline

- LATE 1990s: The high-speed rail (HSR) project is proposed by several Malaysian companies. - EARLY 2000: Proposals are submitted by the private sector, including YTL Corp Bhd, but the project never took off.
- 2006: YTL Corp revives the proposal. However, it is not approved as the value proposition is not a priority.
- 2009: The China Infraglobe-Global Rail consortium submits its proposal.
- SEPTEMBER 2010: The Economic Transformation Programme highlights the HSR as a high-impact project to improve the economic dynamism of Kuala Lumpur as well as livability rankings relative to other global cities.
- EARLY 2011: The Public Land Transport Commission (SPAD) is tasked by the government to lead the study on the HSR project.
- MID-2011: SPAD starts pre-feasibility study (Phase 1A) on the HSR project. The study looks at the possibilities in terms of macro-economic factors, the size of the investment and economic spillover effects. The result is favourable.
- EARLY 2012: SPAD commences a more rigorous feasibility study (Phase 1B), which looks at the project from the macro perspective. The study takes about 12 months. SPAD analyses critical aspects such as the anticipated cost, the economics of running the HSR and operating wages, the economic benefits it will bring in terms of employment during construction and employment after construction, the economic activities that can be generated around the proposed stops in Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri, and whether the HSR will change the way business is done not only in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore but also at each stop. The findings show that the economic internal rate of return (EIRR) is very positive. EIRR looks at the impact on the economy in terms of job creation and boost in property values and economic activities.
- FEBRUARY 2013: The prime ministers of Malaysia and Singapore agree to go ahead with the project. Negotiations begin between both countries to find common grounds on the project.
- JUNE 2013: SPAD presents results of the Phase 1B feasibility study to the National Economic Advisory Council.
- APRIL 2015: MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd is set up to oversee the HSR project.
- OCTOBER 2015: SPAD conducts Request for Information exercise.
- April 2016: MyHSR Corp conducts Request for Proposal for technical advisory services.
- JUNE 2016: Expected signing of memorandum of understanding.
- NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2016: Expected signing of bilateral agreement.
- EARLY 2017: Procurement process to start.
- 2018/2019: Construction to commence.
- 2027: Commercial operation of the HSR.

PM says signing of MoU for KL-Singapore high speed rail by July
Tuesday, 17 May 2016 | MYT 4:08 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...-rail-by-july/

LONDON: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said a memorandum of understanding (MOU), to facilitate the High-Speed Rail (HSR) project, is expected to be signed in July by Malaysia and Singapore.

He said the project had aroused excitement worldwide as it would cut travelling time from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur to about 90 minutes.

"We expect to sign the MOU with Singapore in July. That's the target,", he said at Bursa Malaysia's private breakfast session with fund managers at Marlborough House on Monday.

Najib was referring to the many infrastructure projects that were earmarked for implementation by the private sector, including the Pan-Borneo Highway, in a move to boost the economy.

Meanwhile, the proposed 350km HSR line will begin in Bandar Malaysia and end at Jurong East in Singapore, reducing the current rail journey of eight hours.

The prime minister had disclosed at the "Invest Malaysia Kuala Lumpur" conference, held in April, that the MoU was expected to be signed in the middle of this year.

It was reported that construction work on the HSR was scheduled to begin in 2017 and completed by 2022. - Bernama
