KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail, once operational, has the potential to generate RM70 billion in investments along the HSR alighment by 2060.

The rail project will be able to create approximately 440,000 jobs, developing new skills and talent that will generate sustanaible opportunities for future generations.

In Melaka, the KL-SG HSR has received overwhelming support from the state of Melaka with 95 per cent respondents having provided positive feedback on the project via the Public Inspection exercise that began on Novermber 1, 2017.

MyHSR Copr said Melaka will have 57-kilometre of HSR alignment out of the total estimated alignment length of 328 kilometres in Malaysia with a station located close to Ayer Keroh toll in the Durian Tunggal district.

“The KL-SG HSR station is expected to reduce travel time between the Bandar Malaysia HSR station in Kuala Lumpur and the Melaka HSR station to 45 minutes compared to 1.5 hours by car currrently.

“The Melaka community will also be able to travel comfortably , coveniently and safely on the HSR to other cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Bangi and Putrajaya, Seremban, Muar, Batu Pahat, iskandar Puteri and Singapore.

“A total of seven permanent and temporary Public Inspection booths have been located in Melaka thoroughout the inspection period, which will end on January 31, 2018.

“We are encouraged by the strong support received from stakeholders and communities along the HSR alignment as we have studied HSR implementations globally and have recognised the positive economic impact brought about by the improved connectivity,” said MyHSR Corp chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohammed Kamal.

The Melaka community is able to view the information about the KL-SG HSR projects, the planned alignment, locations of the seven Malaysian stations , typical station features and layout, land acquisition plans, railway technical data and the Socio-economic Development Programme (SEDP) at Public Inspection Booths.

Four high speed trains per hour for KL-SG HSR
By Nur Aqidah Azizi - December 8, 2017 @ 3:13pm



Quote:
SEREMBAN: There will be four high speed trains operating between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore per hour once the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) project commences operations in 2026.

MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd director of commercial Tonny Yeap said two high speed trains will offer express service between two terminal stations – Bandar Malaysia station in Kuala Lumpur and Jurong East in Singapore.

"The other two high speed trains will cater to the domestic service, with in-between intermediaries stop at seven stations in Malaysia, namely in Bandar Malaysia, Bangi-Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri,” he said.

Both services are expected to reduce travel time between the two countries to less than two hours at a speed of 350km per hour.

"The travel time between Kuala Lumpur and Seremban can also be reduced to only 25 minutes compared to 55 minutes by car today.

"The project will definitely provide Negri folks the opportunity to travel comfortably, conveniently and safely on the HSR to other cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Bangi and Putrajaya, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat, Iskandar Puteri and Singapore," he said.

Yeap added the Negri Sembilan state will have 52km of HSR alignment out of the total estimated alignment length of 328km in Malaysia, with a station is expected to be located about 15km from Seremban old town and 5km from Keretapi Tanah Melayu Labu station.

"The design of the station combines elements of green beauty, futuristic development and heritage of the Sri Menanti Palace that served as a palace for the Royal family of Negri Sembilan,” he said at a media briefing on the progress of the project here yesterday.

Also present was MyHSR director of public delivery, Mark Loader.

Loader said, the project has received overwhelming support from the state with 96 percent of respondents in Negri Sembilan have provided positive feedback on the project via the Public Inspection exercise that began on Nov 1.

"The state has recorded second highest positive support for the project after Johor. We are encouraged by this strong support received from the community here," he said.

A total of six permanent and temporary Public Inspection booths have been located in the state throughout the Public Inspection period which will end on Jan 31, next year.

"The state’s community will be able to view information about the KL-SG HSR project, its planned alignment, locations of the seven HSR stations in Malaysia, typical station features and layout, railway technical data and socio-economic development programme (SEDP) as well as land acquisition plans at the booth,” he said.

Loader further added that the land acquisition is expected to start by the middle of next year.

MyHSR Corporation awarded membership from UIC
By NST Business - December 11, 2017 @ 5:04pm

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corporation received the prestigious International Union of Railways (UIC) membership during the 91st UIC General Assembly held in Paris last week.

Incorporated since 1922, UIC is a worldwide professional association representing the railway sector and promoting rail transport globally, by developing and facilitating all forms of international cooperation among members and sharing best practices.

“We are indeed honoured to be a member of UIC and being able to work closely with international industry players to be able to influence policies on issues such as mobility, sustainable development and the environment, and tackle future challenges of the railway industry together,” said MyHSR Corp chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohammed Kamal in a statement today.

MyHSR Corp said as a UIC member, it will now be part of technical cooperation amongst railways and will be able to actively participate in proposing new ways to improve technical and environmental performance of rail transport, subsequently leading to improved competitiveness and reduced cost.

MyHSR Corp is currently undergoing a three-month Public Inspection from November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018 with 43 booths along the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) alignment.

Additionally, MyHSR Corp has recently called for a tender to appoint the Project Delivery Partner (PDP) for the KL-SG HSR with the role to develop the detailed design and construction of the infrastructure works and assist with interface management, land acquisition processes and stakeholder engagement activities.

Benefits of KL-Singapore high-speed rail outweigh potential environmental costs: Report
27 Dec 2017 07:30PM



The concept design for Iskandar Puteri station along the KL-Singapore HSR. (Photo: MyHSR)

Quote:
SINGAPORE: The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) project will have several short-term environmental concerns, but the long-term benefits on commuter safety and carbon emissions provide a "strong justification" for the project, an environmental impact assessment report showed on Wednesday (Dec 27).

In a report commissioned by MyHSR Corporation, the group responsible for the development and implementation of the project, it was noted that air, water and noise impacts, soil erosion and sedimentation are among the short-term environmental concerns.

Among these concerns are also carbon dioxide emissions that will be generated from the burning of fossil fuels to provide enough electricity to power the HSR system. By 2060, 646,000 megawatts hr/yr of electricity is needed to support the HSR system. This hourly figure is about 140,000 times the electricity per capita consumed in Malaysia in 2014.

However, the report added that mitigating measures have been put in place to ensure that these environmental effects do not adversely affect people.
For example, pathways used to transport soil and biomass will not be located near residential areas.

The report also added that "the duration of the construction period is relatively of short term" and that the "impacts will be intermittent".

As a result, the findings from the study indicate that "on an overall basis, the HSR project is expected to induce net positive environmental impacts" the report said.

POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL EFFECTS

When operational, the HSR will offer three services - the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore direct service , a one-stop service from Iskandar Puteri to Singapore and a domestic service stopping at seven stations - and operate between 6am and midnight daily.

Annual ridership is expected to reach about 15.2 million in 2030 and increase to 37.8 million in 2060.

These ridership figures will translate into fuel and carbon dioxide emissions savings, the report said. It is projected that by the 10th year of operation, about 19 million litres of fuel will be saved from fewer vehicles on the roads.
Additionally, the electric-powered HSR will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles and this can amount to up to 55 million kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions saved.

With the HSR, commuter trips between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore will likely be serviced predominantly by the rail service, rather than by air or cars, the report said.

Hence, commuter safety is also expected to improve.

The report stated that 6,872 fatalities were recorded on Malaysian roads in 2010, especially during festive seasons with high traffic figures. As commuters switch to using the HSR instead of driving, this could "reduce the exposure of commuters to safety incidents with significant benefits to the economy and society".

However, the report does take into account that although certain impacts are mitigated in the long run, social impacts may extend into the future as well.
The HSR alignment is set to start from Bandar Malaysia Station in Kuala Lumpur and pass through Putrajaya, Seremban, Malacca, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri before terminating in Singapore.

As such, eviction and relocation of businesses and households in these areas may take place, said the report.

A social impact study has been commissioned to assess the impacts and potential social benefits of the HSR.

IS THE HSR JUSTIFIED?

Despite the short-term and long-term negative impacts, the Malaysian government believes there is "a strong justification" for the HSR as it will "contribute significantly towards the country's future economic growth" and help transform Malaysia into a "high-income, developed nation".

In order to achieve the World Bank's requirements for a high-income nation, Malaysia expects to raise its per capita income from US$6,700 to US$15,000 by 2020.

Furthermore, the HSR is also expected to create 111,000 jobs.

In terms of convenience, commuters can enjoy an increased speed of travel between cities, especially cities in the south-west coast of the Malaysian peninsula.

Additionally, pick-up and drop-off facilities for passengers will also be included at the HSR stations, allowing easy access for passengers arriving or departing by buses and taxis. Those driving will also have about 8,400 parking facilities across all Malaysian stations.

The HSR, slated to be ready by 2026, is also expected to shorten the travel time from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore to 90 minutes.

Japan stands good chance of winning KL-SG HSR project, says Envoy
January 3, 2018 @ 8:34pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Japan stands a good chance of winning the tender for the Kuala Lumpur–Singapore High-Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) project, despite an expected strong competition from its closest rival, China.

Japan’s Ambassador to Malaysia Dr Makio Miyagawa in a business radio interview yesterday said the country was offering its best HSR proposal and technology to both Malaysia and Singapore.

Citing the Shinkansen, he said the longest serving HSR system in the country had not experienced any fatal accidents, since starting operations in 1964.

“The system is also in the process of being adopted by India, Thailand and the United States, while already operational in Taiwan,” he added.

Miyagawa said Japan had no intention of monopolising the benefits arising from the establishment of the KL-SG HSR.

“Japanese industry players are very happy to cooperate with their Malaysian peers, to ensure the project benefits both parties.

“We would also like to intensify human capital development alongside the transfer of technology to Malaysia and Singapore, and as this also enhances our chances of winning the bid for the KL-SG HSR,” he added.

Last November, MYHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd, called for the tender to appoint the project delivery partner for the 350-km project.

Estimated to cost between RM50 billion-RM60 billion, the KL-SG HSR is projected to start operations around 2026.

On the halal sector, Miyagawa said it was necessary for Japan to have good input and investments from Malaysia to be more Muslim-friendly ahead of 2020, when Tokyo hosts the Olympic Games.

“This is one area of cooperation suggested by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to our Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe during the former’s visit to Japan in 2016.

“Malaysia has offered to become the halal industry advisor to Japan and both governments have been working very closely on this segment,” he said.

MyHSR Corp awards HSR social impact project to ERE Consulting
Friday, 5 Jan 2018

KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR Corp) has awarded the social impact assessment contract for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail project to ERE Consulting Group Sdn Bhd.

It said on Friday that ERE Consulting – which has experience in conducting social impact assessments for equivalent projects such as the MRT one and two and also the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) phases one and two – was awarded the contract after an open tender exercise which was launched in November 2017.

MyHSR Corp said ERE Consulting would have to complete an assessment on the possible social impact arising from the implementation of the KL-SG HSR project within Malaysia.

“The study will also include a heritage impact assessment to ensure that the project complies with the relevant policies and plans,” it said.

MyHSR Corp CEO Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said ERE Consulting would be responsible to assess the possible social impact arising from the three phases of the KL-SG HSR project, which encompasses the pre-construction, construction and operational phase.

“They will analyse all the feedback received from the public inspection exercise and will be conducting additional surveys and focus group discussions along the alignment,” he said.

Mohd Nur Ismal said that based on the assessment, effective mitigation measures would be put in place to further minimise any identified social impacts to the affected communities.

“MyHSR Corp will continue to work closely with PLANMalaysia for the preparation of the social impact assessment study and is committed to adopt the highest standards for the development of the project in a safe and sustainable manner,” he added.
