The idea of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail was initiated through the Economic Transformation Programme to transform Malaysia into a high-income nation. The KL-SG HSR is an alternative travel mode between two of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant and fast-growing economic engines.

The iconic project will include 7 stations in Malaysia – Bandar Malaysia, Sepang-Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri, before reaching its last destination in Jurong East, Singapore.

The connectivity will enable businesses to be more productive and access a broader market place, while the public will enjoy an improved travel experience of shorter travel time (90 minutes from KL to Singapore) and a comfortable ride, through the HSR’s city centre to city centre connection along the corridor.

The KL-SG HSR is more than just a transportation project – it is an impetus towards socio-economic development in Kuala Lumpur and the intermediate cities along the HSR corridor, starting with economic clusters centred around each station. This will ultimately change how people live, work and travel entirely.
