PETALING JAYA: Public inspection for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project which began yesterday garnered more than 400 positive responses on its first day.
The three-month long public inspection from Nov 1, 2017 to Jan 31, 2018 opened with 14 permanent booths at the Land Public Transport Commission offices and local councils in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Negri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor.
Additionally, a total of 29 roadshow booths will be placed at shopping malls and public places from Nov 15, 2017 to Jan 31, 2018.
Throughout the three-month period, visitors will be able to view materials containing information about the KL-Singapore HSR project, including satellite images of the planned 350km alignment and locations of the seven stations in Malaysia.
Other information such as typical station features and layout, land acquisition plans, railway technical data and socio-economic development programmes for the HSR hubs are also available at the booths for visitors’ viewing and reference.
“The public inspection is an important platform for us to engage the public. This three-month period is crucial in ensuring comprehensive dissemination of project information and effective collection of feedback from the public,” MyHSR Corp CEO Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohammed Kamal said.
