as for this, it is a cross border HSR. if the immigration is slow or has heavy traffic, it is going to affect travel time.

Considering this, the chances of the line stretching across Singapore goes lower. Duration of immigration clearance will vary, and if the train has a high load of tourists (foreigners take a longer time to clear), clearance will take longer and may cause bunching.

If it starts at Tuas (or anywhere near the coast), then passengers can clear immigration first, then board any train departing next, rather than the train waiting at the platform for all passengers who were on board to clear immigration and board the train again.

At Woodlands Train Checkpoint, trains usually get delayed especially during periods of high demand because of immigration.

why not have the immigration like what it's now? at the station with both immigration in it.

In the new Era of transport, nothing has changed, at least visibly. Disruption still a regular, and perhaps the bus is slow and safe...

If they are going to build the HSR, I suspect they are building a new bridge right? Because the current tuas bridge won't be enough.

interesting article on the HSR....

http://www.sgcarmart.com/news/article.php?AID=12479



The Malaysian investment fund 1Malaysia Development (1MDB) has identified the location for the terminal station of the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) line. It will be located at the edge of Kuala Lumpur, within the Bandar Malaysia project.

The fund, which is owned by the Finance Ministry with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak as Head of its Advisory Board, has also announced that it will add two upcoming MRT lines to make the location a transport hub for the Malaysian capital.

In its statement, 1MDB said it has completed a 'strategic review' under new management and will take steps to reduce its massive debts, including selling assets and carrying out joint venture projects. It has been criticised for amassing debts of nearly RM42 billion (S$16 billion) in just six years after buying 15 power plants and other assets to grow quickly.

The Bandar Malaysia project has not been officially launched. The planned 200-hectare mixed development will sit on land in an existing military airbase in Sungai Besi, about five kilometres from the Petronas Twin Towers in downtown KL.

Earlier this month, Singapore said that the location of its HSR terminal will be announced when the heads of both countries meet for an upcoming retreat.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had previously said that Jurong East would be a "very attractive" location. Two other sites being considered are Tuas West and the city centre.

More Details:

It will link to the current JUR stn, and JUR ITH and will be mostly underground. 

Exact Site is at the current Jurong Country Club along Jurong Town Hall Rd. The Station will occupy 20% of the Country club. The remaining to be redeveloped  

To minimise the HSR’s land take here, all depot and stabling facilities will be located in Malaysia.


It is no fun... mostly underground Sad
