Cost study for Singapore–Kuala Lumpur link

By Chris Sleight14 May 2015

Consultant Turner & Townsend has been appointed to develop a capital and operational cost model for the proposed Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia high speed rail link.

The 350 km link will connect the city-state of Singapore to Malaysia’s capital city, with journey times expected to be around 90 minutes.

Turner & Townsend will work as a sub-consultant to KPMG to make an economic assessment of the project. The company has previously been involved in London, UK’s Crossrail project, the Edinburgh, UK tram system, Qatar Rail and the Northwest Rail Link in Australia.

Duncan Stone, regional managing director at Turner & Townsend said, “This game-changing project is another feather in our cap in the rail sector.

“In developing a robust cost model we mobilised the knowledge and skills of our global team of experts, who between them have worked on some of the most challenging high speed rail projects across the world.

“The High Speed Rail link will provide efficient transport for the people of Singapore and Malaysia, significantly contributing to the economic growth of both countries.”
