Malaysia calls for ICE proposals for RTS rail link

Malaysia’s Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp.) has launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the appointment of an Independent Consulting Engineer (ICE) for the Rapid Transit System (RTS) to link Johor with Singapore.

After the cross-border Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) link project was placed on hold and reviewed following a change of government in Malaysia, it will now be a standalone Light Rail Transit (LRT) system and is expected to begin operations by the end of 2026, two years later than initially planned. The use of ICEs on rail projects is not new for Malaysia, as they have been used to check technical work done on the Klang Valley MRT projects in Kuala Lumpur and there is likely to be interest from local and international engineering consultancy firms.

An RFP briefing will be held at the Menasa I&P 1 Building in the Damansara area of Kuala Lumpur on Friday August 28th at 3:30pm.
