MyHSR Corp appoints technical advisor for Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high speed rail

PETALING JAYA (July 26): Following the recent signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high speed rail (KL-SG HSR) by both the Malaysian and Singaporean governments, MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd (MyHSR) has selected CH2M as its technical advisor for the landmark cross-border project.  

MyHSR has also awarded its technical advisory services tender to CH2M.  

CH2M, with its sub-consultant PwC, will support MyHSR to develop the project, including working on the planning and design of the Malaysian section of the project, and assisting with the project management aspects of the project. 

“We have a challenging task ahead and with this appointment, we would be better equipped. We expect CH2M to bring its global expertise and its experience working on HSR projects for the KL-SG HSR,” MyHSR Corp CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said in a statement today.

CH2M programme director Mark Loader added that CH2M is an established member of the Malaysian engineering community, with a continued presence in Kuala Lumpur since the 1960s.

“We understand the challenges associated with delivering this nationally significant programme based on our depth of experience with High Speed 1 and 2 in the UK. Our team will bring a partnership approach to MyHSR, combining international rail expertise with our local understanding to provide the leadership and capabilities to ensure the project is delivered successfully,” he said.
