Singapore-Kuala Lumpur HSR Discussions

If it is powered by overhead wires, the Singapore section will be underground as Singapore doesn't allow overhead wires outside.

from the looks, it is going for overhead cabling, since KLIA Express/Transit also uses it.

no choice, it had to go underground. reason being, space and type of cabling.

Shinkansen runs on narrow gauge (1067mm).

And HSR has to run with overhead wires. The third rail will also wear out if used with high speed due to friction. More arcing will occur and can damage equipment.

Not confirm, but earlier reports said that it will not at Woodlands.

if that box in CGA were to be the site for HSR, it would kill the SG-KL route via Air.

it's much faster ...

a while ago, they were comparing air route, HSR, Bus and KTM. SG-KL via air took 1/2 hour but adding everything, it takes just as long.

Flight 30 minutes+Check in 2 hours prior+KLIA to KL 30 minutes

HSR beats it.

High speed railways are generally comparable to air routes due to the fact that you need to wait a longer time for air routes (check-in, baggage, landing, everything).

Air routes, when travelling themselves, are faster. This is no-doubt true, but if you factor in everything, sometimes the best solution isn't to take to the skies.

An example: For a trip from Tokyo to Nagoya, in terms of 'raw' travelling time alone, the plane is faster than the Nozomi service (the fastest you can get) by ~35 minutes. However, factor in all the other time considerations needed for a plane, and you can see why the rail is able to remain competitive compared to domestic flights.
