CH2M to advise on Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail link

CH2M has been appointed as technical advisor for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail link.

The company and its sub-consultant PwC will support MyHSR Corporation in the development of the project, including working on the planning and design of the Malaysian section and assisting with project management aspects.

The contract award follows the last week's signing of a memorandum of understanding on the project by both the Malaysian and Singaporean governments (link opens in new tab).

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

CH2M programme director Mark Loader said: “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.”
