Time, efficiency and price wise, I dont think it will be competitive vis-a-vis air travel. Look at Australia's Indian Pacific for example. Such thing are only for romantic purpose where people with time and money can travel back in time on existing rail. For Borneo to build such a rail network without real economical benefit is highly doubtful.

Freight trains are making a come back in USA as they are more fuel efficient than trucks.
The soil condition and numerous rivers in Sarawak also make rail system very expensive to operate and maintain. If you pay attention to many of our local roads ( they looks like 1st class road from the air), they are cheaply built without any structure support or pilings; they undulated and cracked. Many of the highways in the west are built of concrete and steel and they are very expensive to construct.
Whatever we built we need to have the money and knowledge to maintain them.

Yes, I know many businessmen and builders want to import their own heavy vehicles and found out later they have to pay kick back $$$$. So there is no choice but to buy from "you know who" linked companies.

Yes, but the rail lines already existed in the US for centuries. They do not exist yet in Borneo. Thus it is much cheaper for the freight rail to make a comeback in the US than to make an appearance in Borneo.

Beside, rail lines divided the lands it crossed and didn't bring much economical benefit except for those with station. Infact, it isolated the places it passed. Highways in contrary connected the places it passed and making it easier for people in Kampong to bring their goods to cities.

Yes, actually both the railway and Highway systems in US killed a bunch of towns/cities which are not on their routes. But it is true, roads are more flexible and cheaper to reach the outlying area.
With only one earth for us to spend/use and dwindling resources we should only build system that is efficient.

New contract for HSL boosts FY13 new contract wins

by*Yvonne Tuah, yvonnetuah@theborneopost.com. Posted on*June 29, 2013, SaturdayKUCHING: The recently secured contract for the construction of an 18-storey commercial/office building in Petra Jaya by Hock Seng Lee Bhd (HSL) will boost the group’s new contract wins to RM358 million to date for the financial year 2013 (FY13).This figure for the first half of the year was on track to equal, if not better, the figure of RM525 million seen in new contract wins for FY12, highlighted HSL corporate affairs manager Sonja Gan in an exclusive with The Borneo Post.To note, the group secured the contract for Petra Jaya commercial/office building was worth RM228 million.“The job is the fourth key job HSL has secured in FY13, boosting our outstanding orderbook by 20 per cent to RM1.2 billion from RM1 billion,” Gan explained.AmResearch Sdn Bhd (AmResearch) in a research note further elaborated that the project is slated to be a new Islamic centre. It added, the duration of the contract is expected to be for 30 months and will be due to be completed by the first quarter of 2016 (1Q16).Meanwhile, RHB Research Institute Sdn Bhd (RHB Research) in a separate note said that HSL is also gearing up for the second phase of its Kuching Sewerage Project.“HSL has guided new contract wins in FY13 that will surpass RM525m it achieved in FY12 and should remain strong beyond FY13 underpinned by infrastructure works arising from three main initiatives, namely Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) roads, water supply and port, Urbanisation (flood mitigation, waste management and traffic diversion) and Rural development (roads, water supply and housing),” it highlighted.HSL, RHB Research pointed out, has thus far secured new contracts worth a total of RM130 million in FY13, comprising two road packages and a drainage diversion package in Samalaju Industrial Park, Bintulu, Sarawak.Both research houses retained positive views on prospects of HSL on the back of the positive outcome of the latest contract.AmResearch derived HSL’s fair value at RM2.48 per share, based on sum-of-parts, while RHB Research derived HSL’s fair value at fair value at RM2.01 per share, based on 12-fold FY14 earnings per share, in line with its one-year forward target price earning ratio for the construction sector of 10 to 16 fold.
