Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has appointed AECOM Singapore Pte Ltd and its team of specialist consultants to conduct the Advanced Engineering Study (AES) for the complete design of the High Speed Rail (HSR) infrastructure within Singapore.
This includes providing architectural, civil, electrical, mechanical and other design services required for the Jurong East terminus, tunnels, and the bridge across the Straits of Johor.
The Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR is a strategic project between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore that aims to facilitate seamless travel between the two capital cities, enhance business linkages, and connect the peoples of both countries closer together. The 350km line will have eight stations, including Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, cutting travel time between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur to 90 minutes.
