ECRL’S GOMBAK TO PORT KLANG SECTOR UNDERGOING DETAILED FEASIBILITY STUDIES
KUALA LUMPUR, 20 April 2017 – Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD) wishes to clarify that the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) railway scheme currently undergoing Public Display features the sector of the project that is ready for implementation, and there is no ‘missing link’ as alleged in some articles published yesterday.
In accordance with the requirements under Section 84 of the Land Public Transport Act 2010 (the Act), the Public Display was conducted following SPAD’s conditional approval on Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd (MRL)’s proposed railway scheme for Phase 1 covering 600.3km from the Integrated Transport Terminal (ITT) Gombak to Wakaf Bharu.
A detailed feasibility study is ongoing for the ITT Gombak to Port Klang link of the ECRL which will be Phase 2 of the ECRL project. When due processes are completed and the extension is ready for execution, SPAD will hold a Public Display of the conditionally approved railway scheme for this alignment prior to execution, as required under the Act.
