Bringing Malaccans Together and Melaka to the World
MALACCA: Surveying works for the construction of the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) station in Malacca have been implemented to identify the coordinates and area required for the project.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron said the project would also involve the acquisition of between 60.7ha to 80.9ha of land in Durian Tunggal from the landowners.
"Surveying works have been done and now we are waiting for the nod from the MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd for the land acquisition in the areas concerned.
"It is expected to (be) carried out soon and we have identified the parties or individuals involved in the land acquisition for the project and they will be compensated accordingly," he told reporters when met at the Deepavali open house hosted by the special secretary to the Malacca Chief Minister, Shanmugam Pitchay, here today.
He was asked to comment on the progress of the project for the fourth HSR station under construction which will connect Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
The KL-Singapore HSR, slated to start operation by 2026, connects the cities of Kuala Lumpur, Bangi, Putrajaya, Seremban, Malacca, Muar, Batu Pahat, Iskandar Puteri and Singapore. — Bernama
