Hey folks, here’s an update on the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (â€ª#HSRâ€¬) project!
In a joint effort to seek views and sound out market interest in the project, Malaysia’s Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) have launched a Request for Information (RFI) exercise.
The RFI exercise marks the next chapter of our HSR journey, and is designed as a consultation exercise to gain market sensing and gather industry opinion on des...ignated commercial and technical aspects of the project.
Benefits of the RFI exercise are twofold: Feedback gathered will gauge market interest in the project, and seek views on the different approaches so we can refine and validate our options which will help ensure a successful tender process subsequently.
The incoming HSR link will improve connectivity between Malaysia and Singapore, and bring people of both countries closer together. With terminus stations in Kuala Lumpur’s Bandar Malaysia and Jurong East, the HSR aims to cut travel time between the two cities to 90 minutes.
Interested parties can visit www.lta.gov.sg/hsr for more information. The RFI exercise is expected to complete by end of 2015.

From the picture, it seems that the HSR station would be located next to the Singapore Science Centre current location:
If so, there is a possibility that the Jurong Region Line may skip Jurong East station altogether. Instead, it plies the entire Jurong Town Hall Road and have a station interchange with the HSR station (and the Cross Island Line station).
