MyHSR Corporation has named Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad - Gamuda Berhad consortium (MRCB Gamuda Consortium) as project delivery partner (PDP) for the northern portion of the alignment and the Syarikat Pembenaan Yeoh Tiong Lay Sdn Bhd-TH Properties consortium (YTL-THP) for the southern section.
The contracts will be awarded upon the satisfactory conclusion of negotiations between MyHSR and the two PDPs. The PDPs will be responsible for designing and delivering the civil works at an agreed cost and schedule.
“We are pleased to have selected two very capable consortia to work on the project.” said Dato’ Mohd Nur Ismal bin Mohamed Kamal, chief executive officer of MyHSR. 2The PDPs will bring both local and international experience, through their own experience in building railways in the country and through partnerships with HSR experts, and together, we will build the KL-SG HSR project.”
