The Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) was first mooted in 2010 as part of the Economic Transformation Programme. The HSR project was recognized as the most strategic infrastructure project in the world for the benefits it would bring to the countries. With a travel time of 90 minutes over 350km of alignment, the distance is in the sweet spot for a HSR link to create a combined mega twin-cities between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. It will be a mega engineering project that will support the country in terms of technical and engineering employability and technology transfer. This seminar allows for attendees to educate themselves on the fundamentals of the HSR Project, Why Rail will be the way future in terms of infrastructure expansions and the requirements for Sustainable Mass Transportation in a country like Malaysia.
