There’s news today about a multi-billion dollar rail project that will change the look of a capital city. It’s not the Honolulu rail project—this is a high speed train that would link Singapore with the capital city of Malaysia. HPR’s Bill Dorman has details in today’s Asia Minute.
The leaders of Singapore and Malaysia signed a train deal this week. It’s a memo of understanding for a high-speed rail project that would link Singapore with Kuala Lumpur—about 185 miles. Planners say it will turn what is now about a 5 hour drive into a 90 minute ride.
