News: MyHSR Corp to Call Tender For Final Survey Consultants

Mar 8, 2018

MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd revealed that it is set to call a tender to select the final survey consultants (FSC) for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) project on Friday (9 March).

Divided in six packages, three of which are reserved for bumiputra firms, the FSC tender is open to experienced companies that are registered with the Ministry of Finance.

The individual licensed land surveyor of such companies should also be registered with the Land Surveyors Board of Malaysia.

Aside from conducting land survey, the FSC will also provide land administration support for KL-SG HSR’s land acquisition process in Malaysia.

This comes as the availability of the land for construction works is crucial for the HSR project.

The government will acquire the identified land in accordance with Section 8 of Land Acquisition Act 1960 (Act 486), upon approval of the project’s railway scheme.

According to MyHSR, the land acquisition application is slated to start in June 2018, with the first land to be purchased for main infrastructures like maintenance facilities, stations and tunnel portals.

With this, MyHSR Corp CEO Datuk Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal encouraged local companies with relevant experience “to participate in the tender to provide expertise on land survey works and to assist with the land acquisition activities”.

“Land acquisition is a critical activity for the project and has significant impact to the overall delivery of the KL-SG HSR project,” he added.
