Promoter MyHSR Corp announced on April 5 that it had selected the project delivery partners which will design and build the civil works for the Malaysian section of the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail project.
A consortium of Malaysian Resources Corp and Gamuda has been selected for the northern portion of the alignment, while a consortium of Syarikat Pembenaan Yeoh Tiong Lay and TH Properties has been selected for the southern section.
The contracts are to be formally awarded following the satisfactory conclusion of negotiations between MyHSR Corp and the two consortia.
The PDPs would be responsible for designing and delivering the civil works at an agreed cost and schedule, undertaking planning, construction, testing and commissioning.
The tender called on November 22 2017 was open to all parties who had experience in railway design and construction, and were familiar with Malaysian railway construction practices and regulatory requirements, as well as the local supply market conditions. The tender also promoted involvement of Malaysian firms consistent with the government’s aim of encouraging the growth of local industries.
‘We are pleased to have selected two very capable consortia to work on the project’, said MyHSR Corp CEO Mohd Nur Ismal bin Mohamed Kamal. ‘The PDPs will bring both local and international experience, through their own experience in building railways in the country and through partnerships with high speed rail experts. Together, we will build the KL-SG HSR project.’
A separate procurement is underway for Malaysia and Singapore to appoint jointly the AssetsCo which would be responsible for designing, building, financing, operating and maintaining the rolling stock and railway systems, including the track, electrification, signalling and telecoms.
Passenger services of the 350 km high speed line are expected to start by the end of 2026.
