A consortium of WSP Engineering Malaysia, Mott MacDonald Malaysia and Ernst & Young Advisory Services has been chosen as the joint development partner (JDP) by Malaysia’s MyHSR and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) for a high-speed railway link (HSR) project that will connect Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
The JDP will provide project management support and technical advice on HSR systems and operations, and develop technical and safety standards.
The consortium will be also tasked with assisting the joint project team established between MyHSR and LTA with the preparation of documents for the forthcoming tenders.
MyHSR CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said: “The consortium of WSP Engineering, Mott MacDonald and Ernst & Young Advisory Services will join the project teams of MyHSR and LTA in further developing the project. The teams will need to work closely to ensure that the project is delivered successfully.”
LTA CEO Ngien Hoon Ping said: “With the collective expertise and extensive experience of the consortium in HSR projects internationally, MyHSR and LTA will be able to kick-start the preparation of upcoming joint tenders for this strategic project.
“Together with the advanced engineering study contract awarded earlier by LTA to carry out engineering studies for the Singapore stretch of the HSR, these two developments mark the next chapter in our journey to deliver the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR project targeted by end-2026.”
