Singapore-KL rail market-sensing exercise: response from 150 firms, consortia so far

AROUND 150 companies and consortia have responded to a request for information (RFI) for the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur high-speed rail (HSR) by Singapore and Malaysia as at 6pm on Oct 16, the two governments said in a joint press release on Monday.

The respondents include firms based in Malaysia, Singapore, other parts of the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, the Middle East and North America, said Malaysia's Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) and Singapore's Land Transport Authority (LTA).

The chief executives of SPAD and LTA said in a joint statement that they considered this a "positive" response and "this feedback will be critical in helping us with the commercial model of the project, and will help ensure that this project starts off on the right note".

All responses to the RFI must be received no later than noon on Nov 18. SPAD and LTA said they expect to complete the RFI exercise by the end of this year.
