TOKYO, May 31 — The contract for the High Speed Rail (HSR) project linking Kuala Lumpur with Singapore will be awarded not just on price and specifications but on the benefit to the government and people of Malaysia, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Deputy Prime Minister, who is on a five-day working visit to Japan from Sunday, described his meeting with his counterpart Taro Aso and several ministers here today as ‘highly structured’, showing their readiness to offer a reciprocal package for Malaysia.

MyHSR CORPORATION SDN BHD
http://www.myhsr.com.my/

MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR Corp) is fully owned by the Ministry of Finance Incorporated and was set up to be the developer and asset owner of the Kuala Lumpur–Singapore High-Speed Rail project (HSR) at Malaysian side, under the government's move to improve connectivity between the two countries, as currently traffic congestion is acute and far exceeds the capacity of the Causeway at Johor Bahru, with the current infrastructure provisions.

The primary objective for the construction of the HSR is to reduce the travel time between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to 90 minutes by strengthening the link between two of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant and fast-growing economic engines. In addition, the HSR presented an opportunity to open up and rejuvenate smaller cities in Peninsular Malaysia by connecting them to the two major metropolises.

Cronology
9 April 2015 - MoF seeks RM10m for wholly owned unit MyHSR Corp.
13 April 2015 - RM38.4b high-speed rail project approved.
18 April 2015 - Cost-sharing likely for HSR.
20 April 2015 - MyHSR Corp to oversee high-speed project.
24 April 2015 - Malaysia approves US$10.6 billion high-speed rail project and the establishment of MyHSR Corp.

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

South Korea keen to secure KL-Spore HSR project
BY BERNAMA - 2 JUNE 2016 @ 2:00 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/06/1...re-hsr-project

SEOUL: South Korea will be presenting the most suitable project cost and planning in direct talks with the Malaysian government in an effort to secure the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project.

It will also be offering technology transfer by mid-June, said its Minister of Land Infrastructure and Transportation, Kang Ho-in. Having experience in HSR implementation, he said South Korea was willing to share its technology with other developing countries.

Kang, who is expected to lead the delegation to Malaysia, hopes that South Korea would be able to promote its prove expertise in the area to the Malaysian government, and work within the project’s budget. “Since last year, we have been making a lot of effort in promoting our technology to Malaysia by setting up an exhibition centre in Kuala Lumpur,” he told Malaysian journalists on a familiarisation tour in Seoul.

South Korea recently emerged as a new player in the bid for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR project and made a grand entry to the local scene with the showroom in Kuala Lumpur to create awareness of its experience in HSR technology.

The South Korean government has organised a consortium to work on the HSR bid and it includes Korea Railroad Corp, Korea Land & Housing Corp, Korea Rail Network Authority (KRNA), top construction companies of South Korea and South Korean maker of HSR trains, Hyundai Rotem Company.

Meanwhile, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Korea Rail Network Authority Kang Yeong Il said South Korea’s ambition to win the HSR project remained positive, despite reports that China was looking ever more likely to secure it.

He also said South Korea would not give up on its bid for the mega transportation project despite the Chinese position and would also continually bid for HSR ventures in other countries.

He also believed that the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR project was very similar to the Korean HSR. South Korea first adopted the French system for its first-generation trains. It is now ranked fourth in the world to operate high-speed train technologies, after France, Germany and Japan. In 2010, a major milestone was achieved when the first made-in-Korea bullet trains were rolled out. --BERNAMA

China takes part in Malaysia's rail terminal project

Chinese leading banks and China's leading railway company have expressed their support for a flagship project in the country's capital.

On Thursday, Chinese leading banks and China's leading railway company agreed to provide funding to the investors of a high speed rail terminal project in Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur.

The Bandar Malaysia project will house the terminal of the proposed high speed rail linking Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the joint venture between Malaysia and China in the project is another indication of the strong ties between the two countries.

URA calls for master plan proposals for Jurong Lake
July 12, 2016, Tuesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/07...r-jurong-lake/

SINGAPORE: The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) of Singapore launched a Request for Proposal (RFP) yesterday, inviting multi-disciplinary teams to develop master plan proposals for the republic’s Jurong Lake District.

This signals the first step of the district’s transformation into ‘A District of the Future’, and the city-state’s second Central Business District (CBD), URA said in a statement here.

URA said the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) terminus, which the Singapore Government announced last year, would be sited in the Jurong Lake District.

Hailed as a game-changer for both countries, it dovetails with the plans to comprehensively redevelop the area surrounding the future HSR terminus.

It is an excellent opportunity, as well as to link up the terminus with surrounding developments, existing and new MRT lines, a new Integrated Transport Hub next to the Jurong East MRT station, and pedestrian connections throughout the district, it said.

URA noted that a key focus of this master planning exercise involves developing proposals for Lakeside Gateway, a new mixed-use business precinct and home to the future HSR terminus, which would anchor the Jurong Lake District as ‘A District of the Future’ and Singapore’s second CBD.

Minister for National Development and Chairman of the Steering Committee Lawrence Wong said: “The District will drive Singapore’s growth in the future economy, and cater to the diverse needs of businesses, residents, visitors, and Singaporeans from all walks of life.

“It will be a distinctive new gateway to Singapore, distinguished by its high connectivity, accessibility and environmentally-friendly features, where smart and green mobility options are the choice modes of commute,” Wong said.

Wong said that the district would be a hub for smart innovations, and home to sustainable urban infrastructure that would boost productivity and manpower efficiency.

“This is only the start of a very exciting transformation.

“We look forward to working closely with professionals and the public to shape an outstanding plan, and will engage extensively to realise the vision for the District,” the minister said.

The RFP comprises two stages whereby interested teams are first required to submit their interest to participate in the RFP.

Up to five shortlisted teams will then develop their Concept Master Plans for the Jurong Lake District.

The team with the best Concept Master Plan will be appointed in February 2017, and work with URA and partner agencies to draw up the Draft Master Plan for the district.

There will be a public exhibition of the Jurong Lake District Draft Master Plan around third quarter 2017.

Thereafter, the appointed team will work with URA to refine the plans.

The Jurong Lake District is a regional centre in the west of Singapore. — Bernama

Lake Grande is situated close to greenery (Jurong Lake Gardens) as well as the Jewel of the West (New Science Centre). 2 MRT stops away you will reach Jurong Gateway where there are shopping malls, offices, general hospital and as well as the future hotel clusters and the High Speed Rail.

Singapore aims for MoU with Malaysia on high-speed rail next week
Friday, 15 July 2016 | MYT 2:37 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/business/b...ail-next-week/

SINGAPORE: Singapore plans to sign a memorandum of understanding with Malaysia next Tuesday to build a high-speed rail link that is expected to cut travel time between the city-state and Kuala Lumpur to around 90 minutes.

The rail link reflects improved relations in recent years, despite the spillover of a high-profile Malaysian money laundering scandal into Singapore.

It now takes around four hours to drive from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, which are about 300km apart. A flight takes around 50 minutes but travellers must spend time checking in and out of airports, as well as travelling from KL International Airport to the city centre.

A Singapore transport ministry spokesman said in a statement that the MoU was expected to be signed on July 19.

There were no details on the timeframe for the project, the amount to be invested or the firms that would be contracted. - Reuters

It was also announced that two train operating companies will be appointed to run the HSR service. An international operator will handle the express service between the Singapore terminus at Jurong East and the KL end at the upcoming Bandar Malaysia development. The same operator will also oversee a cross-border shuttle service between Singapore and Iskandar Puteri.

Another operator will run the domestic service within Malaysia. The express service will have scheduling and operational priority over a domestic line servicing the six stops in Malaysia between Singapore and KL.

The HSR trains are expected to be 10-cars-long, with the capacity for up to 100 passengers per car.

Fare will be set commercially by the operators and “competitive with airfares”, said Singapore authorities.

A separate private entity will design, build, finance and maintain the trains as well as rail assets, like trackwork, communications, signalling and power. It will also allocate and control track access. Depots and maintenance facilities will be located in Malaysia.

The Singapore and Malaysian governments will build and fund infrastructure works such as viaducts, tunnels and stations within their territories. Both governments also agreed to form a bilateral committee comprising representatives from both sides to manage and regulate aspects of the project which might impact the cross-border services.

Shutter service will be god send for those living in Iskandar

Private Equity??

Full article: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/...d/2966746.html

So basically the line will be run similarly to High Speed 1 where operators pay for access rights.

10-car trains... So out go the rumours of 4-car sets. Having a 3rd company to own and manage the trains sounds troublesome if the bane of CHT gets it. I think I would now prefer JR East for that.

I'll add more reactions when I get home.

edit: Alright I'm home.

I'm quite concerned about having one operator provide an almost-turnkey solution except for the infrastructure and the actual train operations. But I guess they chose to learn from the lesson of THSR, which melded Japanese and European tech rather haphazardly.

And I was under the impression Putrajaya station was canned? Something about it being too close to KL and Seremban...

Here is the press release from LTA

https://www.lta.gov.sg/apps/news/pag...d-ba7574c5dc50


Here is the illustration of relationship between InfraCos, AssetsCos OpCos
https://www.lta.gov.sg/data/apps/new...-HSRAnnexB.pdf

Operator for domestic service only operate between KL and Iskandar Puteri. So for those heading to Singapore, they will have to transfer to the IP-Jurong East shutter service which is manage by OpCo International.


Any idea who is going to own AssetsCo? Temasek and Khazanah + equity partners?


Perhaps the most important statement of all

KVMRT Line 2 (Sungei Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya Line) already stops at Bandar Malaysia and Putrajaya Sentral.

If you want faster, there's also a proposal to add KTM Komuter and ERL stops at Bandar Malaysia, probably 10-15 mins to Putrajaya.

But I guess it wouldn't matter much since trains would be already slowing to enter Bandar Malaysia. And they might have the money or think it's worth it, so...

JOINT NEWS RELEASE BY SPAD & THE LAND TRANSPORT AUTHORITY (LTA) - MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING IS A MAJOR MILESTONE FOR THE KUALA LUMPUR-SINGAPORE HIGH SPEED RAIL PROJECT
News Releases 19 Jul 2016
https://www.lta.gov.sg/apps/news/pag...d-ba7574c5dc50

Quote:
Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) welcome today's signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Government of Malaysia and the Government of the Republic of Singapore on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) Project, by YB Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan, Malaysia’s Minister in the Prime Minister's Department and H.E. Minister Khaw Boon Wan, Singapore’s Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport. The signing ceremony, which was witnessed by Malaysia’s Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak and Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, signifies Malaysia and Singapore’s firmest commitment yet to this iconic project.

The MOU reflects the outcome of extensive discussions between officials led by the Ministry of Transport and the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) of Malaysia, and the Ministry of Transport and Land Transport Authority of Singapore, since the project was first announced by the Prime Ministers of both countries at the 4th Singapore-Malaysia Annual Leaders’ Retreat in February 2013. The MOU captures the key points of agreement on the project, which include the technical parameters, commercial model, customs, immigration & quarantine (CIQ) clearance, safety & security matters, regulatory framework, as well as project management. Please refer to Annex A for the highlights.

The MOU will guide the development of a legally-binding Bilateral Agreement to be signed by both Governments towards the end of this year. It also reiterates the Governments’ commitment to ensure that all project tenders are conducted in an open, fair and transparent manner, so as to encourage participation from technology and service providers worldwide.

Both Governments agreed that each will take responsibility for developing, constructing and maintaining the civil infrastructure and stations within their own countries, which will be undertaken by MyHSR Corporation and LTA (as InfraCos) in Malaysia and Singapore respectively. Through international tenders, an assets company (AssetsCo) will be appointed to provide and maintain the HSR trains and its associated systems (e.g. track, power, signalling and telecommunications), while two train operating companies (OpCos) will be appointed to operate the HSR services. OpCo International will operate the cross-border services (i.e. the Express Service and the Shuttle Service), while OpCo Domestic will operate the Domestic Service within Malaysia. Please refer to Annex B for an illustration of the HSR services and the relationship between the InfraCos, AssetsCo and OpCos.

Both Governments agreed that the HSR will have eight stations – the termini in Bandar Malaysia and Singapore, and six intermediate stations in Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri. Please refer to Annex C for an illustrative map of the location of the stations. All stations will be designed to integrate with the local public transport systems to ensure seamless connectivity. The trains will run at a top speed of more than 300km/h. To facilitate swift and seamless travel, both Governments agreed to co-locate CIQ facilities at three locations – Singapore, Iskandar Puteri and Kuala Lumpur – so that international-bound passengers will need to undergo CIQ clearance by both Malaysia and Singapore authorities only at the point of departure. Please refer to Annex D for an illustration of the co-located CIQ concept for passengers travelling between KL and Singapore.

Both Governments also agreed to form a Bilateral Committee comprising representatives from both Governments to manage and regulate aspects of the project which might impact the cross-border services. In addition, a Joint Project Team comprising representatives from MyHSR Corporation and LTA will be formed to coordinate joint aspects of planning and development works prior to the commencement of operations. As a next step, the Joint Project Team will call for an international tender next month to appoint a Joint Development Partner to provide technical support to both countries on the project.

Both Governments agreed to work towards commencing HSR operations by around 2026.

I've read elsewhere that there will be a stop at Putrajaya but this map seems to show the route bypassing it? Is there a more detailed map of the route that has been released?

It would be great if they could explore the feasibility of building a simple connecting spur to join with the existing KLIA Express tracks so trains can reach KL Sentral which would be a more direct and attractive option.

Anyway, I'm glad they've confirmed co-locating the immigration facilities for both countries only at the point of departure. That will be a huge boon. I don't think other modes of travel currently offer this.

KL-Singapore HSR project to boost local construction scene
July 21, 2016, Thursday Yvonne Tuah
http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/07...ruction-scene/

KUCHING: The recently signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the KL-Singapore high speed rail (HSR) project will likely bode well for the local construction industry throughout the project implementation period, analysts say.

In a report, the research arm of TA Securities Holdings Bhd (TA Securities) said that it is encouraged by the signing of the MoU.

“It is a momentous mileage as this signifies the seriousness by both governments in realising the HSR project.

“Given the size of the project, estimated between RM50 billion and RM60 billion, this is possibly the biggest ever single construction project to be implemented in Malaysia.

“We expect the project to have an impactful boost to the local construction industry throughout the project implementation period,” it opined.

The research team viewed that the target completion date of 2025 for the construction works is realistic given the size of the project, and as some time is required for detailed design, tender process and land acquisition.

“Having involved in several rail-related such as Taiwan Kaohsiung MRT, Northern Double Track and KVMRT, Gamuda Bhd (Gamuda) stands out as a strong contender for the civil works.

“Other potential local beneficiaries include IJM Corporation Bhd, Sunway Construction Group Bhd, WCT Holdings Bhd, Gadang Holdings Bhd, Muhibah Engineering (M) Bhd, Mudajaya Group Bhd, Bina Puri Holdings Bhd, Ekovest Bhd, Fajarbaru Builder Group Bhd, Kimlun Corporation Bhd, Pesona Metro Holdings Bhd, Pintaras Jaya Bhd, Econpile Holdings Bhd, and Ikhmas Jaya Group Bhd,” it said.

On the project, it noted that each government would be responsible for the development, construction and maintenance of civil infrastructure and stations in their respective countries.

“Through international tenders, an assets company will be appointed to provide and maintain the HSR trains and its associated system, such as track, power, signaling and telecommunications. Meanwhile, two train operating companies will be appointed to operate the HSR services.

“OpCo International will operate the cross-border services (KL-Singapore and Iskandar Puteri- Singapore), while OpCo Domestic will operate the domestic service within Malaysia,” it said.

TA Securities added that the line is expected to consist of eight stations, seven (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri) of which will be in Malaysia while the only station in Singapore will be located at Jurong East.

“The project will involve the construction of a brand new line with dedicated tracks, that will allow trains to reach a maximum speed in excess of 300km/h; 335km of the track will be set in Malaysia with the remaining 15km stretch in Singapore. With this, the travel time is expected to be trimmed to 90 minutes.

“Singapore and Malaysia CIQ facilities will be co-located at three locations – KL, Iskandar Puteri and Singapore. International-bound passengers will only need to go through CIQ clearance by both Singapore and Malaysia authorities at the point of departure, ensuring swift and seamless travel.”

KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd has appointed global engineering company, CH2M, as its technical adviser for the iconic cross-border Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail (HSR) project.

CH2M, with its sub-consultant, PwC, will support MyHSR to develop the project, including working on the planning and design of the Malaysian section and assisting with the project management aspects.

In a statement here yesterday, MyHSR chief executive officer, Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal, said the appointment of CH2M would better equip the company in developing the project. “We expect CH2M to bring its global expertise and its experience working on HSR project for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR,” he said.

Meanwhile, CH2M programme director, Mark Loader, said the company would bring a partnership approach to MyHSR, combining international rail expertise with its local understanding to provide the leadership and capabilities to ensure the project would be delivered successfully.

Malaysia and Singapore signed a memorandum of understanding on July 19, 2016 to cement their commitments towards the project, witnessed by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

MyHSR, the project delivery vehicle, was incorporated as a company wholly-owned by the Ministry of Finance.

The project, targeted for commercial operations in 2026, would have eight stations – Bandar Malaysia, Putrajaya, Seremban, Ayer Keroh, Muar, Batu Pahat, Iskandar Puteri and Singapore.

The 350km rail would reduce travel time between the two countries to just 90 minutes, with speed of over 300km/hour. – Bernama

Two train operating companies will be appointed to operate the HSR services.

According to Mohd Nur, MyHSR is currently focused on getting the project team on the ground on both sides of the country.

On the Malaysia side, MyHSR has appointed a global engineering company, CH2M, as its technical adviser.

CH2M, with its sub-consultant, PwC, will support MyHSR to develop the project, including working on the planning and design of the Malaysian section and assisting with the project management aspects.

MyHSR and Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore have announced they will be calling for a joint tender to appoint a Joint Development Partner (JDP) to assist in the development of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR.

The JDP is expected to provide project management support, technical advice and procurement advice relating to the high speed railway systems, operations and develop the technical and safety standards.

In addition, it will assist the Joint Project Team (JPT) established between MyHSR, Malaysia and LTA, Singapore and Malaysia with the preparation of documents for the forthcoming tenders relating to the joint aspects of the project, such as the appointment of the AssetsCo and OpCo International.

On Wednesday, MyHSR announced it will appoint reference design consultants (RDCs) for the project for five RDC work packages where local and international firms are encouraged to participate.
