(NST) MyHSR Corporation awards KL-SG HSR contracts to Jurukur Perunding Services Sdn Bhd, Teraju Ukur


KUALA LUMPUR: MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd has awarded the Ground Control Point (GCP) survey works contracts for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) to Jurukur Perunding Services Sdn Bhd and Teraju Ukur.

The company released a statement today saying that the consultants will be responsible for the installation of the GCP markers and the establishment of a common reference between the national and state grids, and coordinate systems for the purposes of the project.

“The GCP survey works is a critical component of the preparatory works of the KL-SG HSR project as it will provide the project with a referenced coordinate scheme that will be essential for the purposes of land acquisition and construction along the project’s 335km alignment in Malaysia," MyHSR Corporation said in the statement.

The awarding of the two contracts follows an open tender exercise which was launched in January this year.

“Progress on the KL-SG HSR project has been ramping up after the signing of the Bilateral Agreement between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore in 2016. The work to be completed by the appointed consultants will form the interface between the relevant grid systems and the project works

“MyHSR will continue to work closely with the Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM) to oversee the development of this common reference system,” said MyHSR CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal.

MyHSR Corporation was incorporated in 2015 and is wholly-owned by the Minister of Finance Incorporated. It acts as the Government of Malaysia’s project delivery vehicle for the KL-SG HSR project and is responsible for the development and implementation of the project.
