Kuala Lumpur, May 9 – AECOM has been appointed by MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR) for the civil reference design works for the High Speed Rail infrastructure within Malaysia from the south of Iskandar Puteri Station to the International Border between Malaysia and Singapore, including the Straits of Johor crossing.
The Malaysian civil rail infrastructure reference design scope, which covers approximately 335 km, was divided into six Reference Design Consultant (RDC) packages by MyHSR.
“The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail is a landmark project and an important symbol for Malaysia and Singapore. We are delighted to partner with MyHSR and look forward to leveraging our local and global experience to design for this iconic project. Earlier this year, AECOM was also chosen to provide the Advanced Engineering Study for the Singapore stretch of the project,” said Billy Wong, AECOM’s regional executive of Southeast Asia.
A joint project between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore, the KL-SG HSR is designed to cut travel time between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to 90 minutes when completed in 2026.
In February this year, AECOM Singapore was appointed by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore as the lead consultant to provide the complete design including architectural, civil, structural, electrical, mechanical and other associated services that are needed for the Jurong East terminus, tunnels and the bridge connecting Singapore and Malaysia at the Straits of Johor.
