T&T develops cost model for 350km high-speed link

Turner & Townsend has developed a cost model for the proposed Singapore-Kuala Lumpur high-speed rail project. The capital and operational cost model was commissioned by KPMG as part of its economic assessment of the scheme.

The railway will have a length of 350km and will connect the two cities in one and a half hours.

Turner & Townsend regional managing director Duncan Stone said that the project has mobilised people who between them have worked on some of the most challenging high-speed rail projects across the world. “The high-speed rail link will provide efficient transport for the people of Singapore and Malaysia, significantly contributing to the economic growth of both countries.”
