When countries work together, their peoples benefit.
The KL-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) Agreement we signed yesterday is a major joint project. It will transform the way Singaporeans and Malaysians do business, interact and socialise. It’s still a long way to go before the first train runs in 2026, but there is a strong political will to ensure its completion and success.
Also happy that we have settled an important aspect of the Singapore-JB Rapid Transit System (RTS) link: the line will cross from Singapore to Johor via a high bridge. Visitors can clear immigration once in JB, hop onto the RTS to Singapore and transfer to the Thomson-East Coast MRT line seamlessly.
These projects, and the proposed triennial Malaysia-Singapore cultural showcase, show our commitment to work together.
