Malaysian Government agency MyHSR has unveiled the architectural concept designs for all seven stations of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail (KL-SG HSR) network, which is currently under development within the country.
The new stations are set to be located in Bandar Malaysia, Bangi-Putrajaya, Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri.
MyHSR chairman Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa said: “The designs of each station were conceptualised to reflect not only the diverse heritage, culture and identity of each city along the HSR corridor, but also demonstrates the growth vision that will be accomplished with the KL-SG HSR.”
The company revealed the designs at the ‘MyStations – Transforming Malaysia’ event, which also included the signing of the commemorative 0-0 Ground Control Point (GCP) marker plaque.
The plaque will form a part of the GCP network and is expected to be installed at the first order monument in Bandar Malaysia to carry out survey works and develop a new coordinate reference system for the project.
It will also facilitate the process of identifying specific areas for land acquisition and construction.
The three-month HSR Public Inspection will begin from 1 November this year at locations in Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor.
Local communities will also be able to take part in this HSR Public Inspection, as well as share their feedback or concerns about the development.
The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR project is being carried out on the basis of a bilateral agreement that was signed between the two countries last year.
It aims to facilitate travel between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore with a journey time of roughly 90 minutes.
The development is being conducted by MyHSR in Malaysia and LTA in Singapore.
