[Press Release] Raffles Country Club Site Identified for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail
Raffles Country Club Site Identified for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail, Cross Island MRT Line’s Western Depot and other Transport Related Needs
Press Release 04/01/17

The Singapore Government announced today that facilities for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR), the Cross Island Line (CRL)’s western depot and other transport related needs, will be located at the current site of Raffles Country Club (RCC).

The Singapore and Malaysia Governments are working towards commencing HSR operations by 31 December 2026. Most recently, at the Singapore-Malaysia Leaders’ Retreat on 13 December 2016, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak agreed that the HSR will cross the Straits of Johor via a bridge.

The RCC site is the most suitable location to run the at-grade HSR tracks immediately after the bridge crossing, and to place the tunnel portal leading to the underground tunnels that would take the HSR to the Jurong East terminus. The site will also be used for required HSR crossover tracks and a HSR siding facility to temporarily house a train near the border for safety or operational reasons, if necessary.
