Electrified Double Track Project from
Gemas to Johor Bahru
YTL Construction in consortium with SIPP Rail Sdn. Bhd. are undertaking the construction of the 192 km electrified double track project from Gemas to Johor Bahru. Working together with the Ministry of Transport, we look forward to fulfilling the final piece of the existing Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad network that is to be upgraded – providing a continuous connection running from the southern to northern tip of the Peninsula.
Remodelling of Perak-Hanjoong Simen Sdn Bhd
The extensive remodelling of Perak-Hanjoong Simen Sdn. Bhd.’s railway yard at Padang Rengas, Perak was undertaken by YTL Construction. The complex remodelling project also encompassed the upgrade and redesign of all infrastructure works, trackwork as well as the construction of the rail weighbridge.
Electrified Double Track Project from Sentul to Batu Caves
YTL Construction undertook the design, construction, completion, testing, commissioning, and maintenance of the 7.5 km extension of the electrified double track project between Sentul and Batu Caves for the KTM rail network. This included the design and construction of 3 new stations at Batu Kantonmen, Kampung Batu, and Taman Wahyu.
Express Rail Link
The opening of Malaysia’s new international airport, the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), at the cusp of the millennium called for a new high-speed rail connection between the airport and city centre. YTL Construction undertook the construction and completion of the Express Rail Link (ERL) train stations, as well as the civil works portion of Malaysia’s first high-speed rail service connecting KLIA to the KL city centre.
The ERL comprises a 57 km standard gauge rail line with a top design speed of 176 km/h and a total journey time of only 28 minutes; the fastest and cheapest connection between KLIA and the KL city centre. The ERL remains South East Asia’s fastest high-speed rail in operation.
Express Rail Link – Extension
The Express Rail Link (ERL) has greatly transformed Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s transit modality. Riding on the success of the ERL, a proposal for a 2.15 km standard gauge track extension from KLIA to KLIA2 was also awarded to YTL Construction for expertise in integrating train and airport systems, trackwork and infrastructure works. The Express Rail Link extension will serve to create a dynamic yet logical transition for the millions of international and domestic travellers passing through Kuala Lumpur each year.
