KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR) and Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be calling for a joint tender on August 22, 2016 to appoint a Joint Development Partner (JDP) for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project.
The JDP is expected to provide project management support, technical advice and procurement advice relating to the high speed railway systems and operations.
The JDP will also develop the technical and safety standards to be adopted for the project.
“In addition, it will assist the Joint Project Team established between Singapore and Malaysia with the preparation of documents for the forthcoming tenders relating to the joint aspects of the project, such as the appointment of the AssetsCo and OpCo International,” the organisations said in a joint statement on Friday.
It said the tender is open to firms which have advised on large public private partnership infrastructure projects including HSR projects of similar size and complexity or firms with experience in providing project management, technical, commercial or legal advisory services relating to HSR and/or rail projects of over or equivalent to 200km of track.
