Singapore to seek $184 mil from Malaysia if HSR project derails

20 7 31

SINGAPORE says it has spent over S$250 million (US$184 million) for the high-speed rail (HSR) project with Malaysia and with the costs growing, the city-state would seek compensation if Kuala Lumpur decides to cancel the project, officials said on Monday.

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has said he was cancelling the HSR project to link Kuala Lumpur with Singapore. He said Malaysia would talk to its southern neighbour about any compensation it had to pay.

Singapore’s Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan said Malaysia had yet to officially inform Singapore of the decision.
