SINGAPORE: A three-party consortium has won the joint development partner contract for the Kuala-Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail (HSR) project, Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Malaysia’s MyHSR Corp announced on Thursday (Feb 16).

Under the contract, the consortium – made up of WSP Engineering Malaysia, Mott MacDonald Malaysia and Ernst & Young Advisory Services – will provide project management support and technical advice on HSR systems and operations.
The consortium will also develop the technical and safety standards for the HSR. It will also help the joint project team, established by LTA and MyHSR, to prepare documents for the coming tenders relating to the joint aspects of the project.

“Following the commitment of the two governments through the bilateral agreement signing, the joint development partner appointment marks the start of a challenging yet exciting journey to bring the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR project to reality,” said MyHSR CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal.

Other appointments for the project will be announced in due course, he added.

LTA chief executive Ngien Hoon Ping said: “With the collective expertise and extensive experience of the consortium in HSR projects internationally, MyHSR and LTA will be able to kick-start the preparation of upcoming joint tenders for this strategic project.”

Singapore and Malaysia signed a bilateral agreement on the HSR in December last year. The 350km rail project, which is expected to cut travel time between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur to 90 minutes, is slated for completion in 2026.

Bandar Malaysia set to take shape with funding
Tuesday, 7 March 2017


Quote:
SINGAPORE: Malaysia is set to break ground on its largest real estate development, the multi-billion-dollar Bandar Malaysia project that will showcase the country’s growing economic ties with China.

Businessman Tan Sri Lim Kang Hoo, whose Iskandar Waterfront Holdings (IWH) secured rights in late 2015 as master developer of the project together with China Railway Engineering Corp (CREC), noted that the initial funding of RM10bil has already been lined up.

Ground works for infrastructure development will begin as soon as “two or three loose ends” with the Malaysian and Chinese governments are tied up in the coming weeks.

“Meeting the conditions, such as approvals from Bank Negara for overseas loans and the degazetting of the land, has been very time-consuming. But we are almost there,” Lim told The Straits Times last week before heading off to Beijing to meet his Chinese bankers, who would provide the bulk of the project’s initial financing.

Located on 196.7ha of prime real estate that currently houses a military airstrip, army barracks and other military installations on the fringes of Kuala Lumpur, Bandar Malaysia will be a purpose-built integrated township featuring residential complexes, subterranean shopping malls, a financial hub and indoor theme parks. It will also house the terminus for the planned high-speed rail connecting Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

Separately, Beijing-based CREC is proposing to build an RM8.3bil regional headquarters in the new township that promoters said would generate a gross development value of RM160bil over a staggered construction timetable that will stretch 25 years.

This massive undertaking comes at a time when there are growing concerns that Kuala Lumpur could see a serious oversupply of commercial property in the near future.

Just next door to Bandar Malaysia, developers have begun work on a new financial district called the Tun Razak Exchange that will cover roughly 28ha of prime real estate. – The Straits Times/ANN

subterranean shopping malls,

I assume that these malls will be connected to the surrounding transportation infrastructure? More like an underground city of sorts.

Yes and the consultants of this project went to underground city of montreal to study it. I guess it will be modelled after it.

Land Transport Authority (SINGAPORE) and MyHSR (MALAYSIA) jointly appointing the HSR Joint Development Partner (JDP) - a consortium comprising WSP Engineering, Mott MacDonald and Ernst & Young Advisory Services. The JDP will provide both countries with project management support and technical advice. They will assist with preparations for the AssetsCo (supply of trains, signalling systems etc) tender. This will be one of the largest railway tenders in the world. It has attracted global attention and we seek to get the best players to take part in this game-changing project.


https://www.facebook.com/ministerkha...011828391367:0

The winning consortium’s tagline: “Two nations, one journey” is apt. The JDP tender attracted world-class bidders and both countries reached consensus in tender evaluation and selection, using an agreed price-quality framework. The same approach will apply for the AssetsCo and other tender evaluations: international contestability, objective and professional assessment based on price and quality.

Kuala Lumpur – Singapore design consultants appointed

http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/n...appointed.html



MALAYSIA: Promoter MyHSR Corp has selected a mix of international and domestic firms to work as Reference Design Consultants on the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore high speed line project, the company announced on April 3.

The consultants will be responsible for preparing the reference designs for the infrastructure alignment and civil works, including bridges and tunnels, plus the international stations at Bandar Malaysia and Iskandar Puteri and the five domestic stations at Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar and Batu Pahat.

The 335 km route from Bandar Malaysia station on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur to the international border between Malaysia and Singapore has been divided into six work packages. These have been awarded to Systra, Jacobs Engineering Services, Ranhill Consulting, HSS Integrated, and AECOM Perunding.

The competitive international tender process which began in August 2016 generated strong interest from the market, according to MyHSR, attracting participation from a range of local and international engineering consultancies.

MyHSR CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said award of the RDC contracts was ‘another step forward as we enter into the next phase of shaping the project. The appointed consultants carry the responsibility of designing what the stations will look like and finalising the civil infrastructure.’ By dividing the work, MyHSR had been able to attract ‘specialist consultants for the specific works to be completed’. Kamal said the winning consultants were ‘very reputable and experienced’.

On December 13 last year the two governments signed a bilateral agreement which 'captured the key points’ of the high speed line project, including the technical parameters, commercial model, customs, immigration and quarantine clearance, safety and security matters, the regulatory framework and the project management approach.

MyHSR and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority have been tasked with leading the implementation of the high speed line project. In February a consortium of WSP Engineering Malaysia, Mott MacDonald Malaysia and Ernst & Young Advisory Services was selected as joint development partner.

High-speed rail 'may offer $1.6b a year in economic gain'
27, 2017, 5:00 AM SGT

Quote:
The high-speed rail (HSR) linking Singapore and Malaysia could potentially offer a combined US$1.12 billion (S$1.6 billion) a year in economic benefit to both countries once it is completed by late 2026.

The estimate by research body Institute of Developing Economies, Japan External Trade Organisation (IDE-JETRO)found that a lion's share of the upside will be enjoyed by Malaysia, given that a larger section of the track will lie there.

It found that the "economic impact" on Singapore could amount to US$114 million a year, while Malaysia may stand to gain just over US$1 billion.

This is based on the three services being developed - an express train between Jurong East here and the upcoming Bandar Malaysia development in Kuala Lumpur, a shuttle connecting Singapore and Iskandar Puteri in Johor and a domestic line from KL to Iskandar Puteri.

"For Malaysia, the economic impact is mostly from the HSR domestic service," noted Mr Satoru Kumagai, director at IDE-JETRO, which conducted the research.

The domestic service in Malaysia will have five stops between Kuala Lumpur and Iskandar Puteri - Batu Pahat, Muar, Ayer Keroh, Seremban and Putrajaya. Mr Kumagai, who was speaking at a seminar organised by the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute yesterday, added that the services sector in Malaysia is likely get a big boost from the HSR. Interestingly, its study showed that Singapore's manufacturing sector could be a potential beneficiary.

"Some capital and labour may be diverted from the manufacturing to the services sector in Malaysia, so the manufacturing side may be weakened," he said, adding that Singapore firms could then pick up the slack in manufacturing across the Causeway.

The research was done using the geographical simulation model developed by IDE-JETRO based on spatial economics - a study of how space or distance affects economic behaviour. Although IDE-JETRO is a Japanese government-related institute, Mr Kumagai said the study is an academic one. It does not represent the views of Japan's policymakers.

Assumptions in the study included average train speed of 200 to 300 kmh, waiting time of 15 minutes for trains at stations and a smiliar duration for customs, immigration and quarantine clearance. The HSR is expected to cut travel time between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur to 90 minutes, compared with more than four hours by car now.

http://www.railwaypro.com/wp/kuala-l...asset-company/

MyHSR Corporation Chief Executive Officer, Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal, stated that the Malaysian government will call for a tender by the end of 2017 to set up a privately financed asset company (“AssetsCo”) for the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project. MyHSR Corporation was set up to be the developer and asset owner of the Kuala Lumpur–Singapore High-Speed Rail project at Malaysian side.

“We have already appointed the Joint Development Partner and Reference Design Consultant. Next, we will go for the asset company tender”, Kamal also said.

AssetsCo will be responsible for the design, build, finance and maintenance of rolling stock and the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of rail assets such as trackwork, power, signaling and telecommunications.

The Infrastructure packages for the project will be awarded from the first quarter of 2018, with SPAD Chairman,Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar, explaining that the packages will be customized and ready for tender after the formation of AssetsCo.

The 350 km high speed rail is expected to reduce travel time between Singapore and the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to 90 minutes.

Bandar Malaysia (HSR terminal) project deal collapses

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: China's capital controls, bidding for the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail project and Bandar Malaysia's increased worth may have contributed to the collapse of a US$1.7 billion deal to offset a Malaysian state fund's debts, according to analysts and people familiar with the matter.

Malaysian Finance Ministry-owned TRX City on Wednesday (May 3) announced it had terminated an agreement for a China Railway consortium to be the master developer of Bandar Malaysia - a major residential and commercial real estate project, set to house a terminal for the high-speed rail (HSR) line connecting KL to Singapore on the basis it "failed to meet payment obligations outlined in the Conditions Precedent”.
