Singapore by rail

A proposed Trans-Asia Rail Link will be completed by 2015, Malaysian Transport Minister

Chan Kong Choy was reported as saying by a Chinese news agency on November 27.

Also known as the Singapore-Kunming Rail Link (SKRL), the rail link will start from

Singapore and run through Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos

before ending at Kunming in China.

"For the missing link between Poipet and Sisophon, the construction of the railway

will start early next year, using the rail tracks donated by Malaysia, while the

ADB [Asian Development Bank] would be financing the construction work," Chan

told reporters after officiating the 28th ASEAN Railways CEO's conference in Kuala

Lumpur.
