Amended law of Singapore-Malaysia rail links

(MENAFN) A proposed law to support the building and running of two future rail links between Singapore and Malaysia was introduced in Parliament on Tuesday (Oct 3).

The Cross-Border Railways Bill will provide for the licensing of operators to run train services and maintain railway assets; the appointment of independent safety auditors; and funding for the projects' construction, among various clauses.

It will also empower the Government to suspend cross-border train services if there are imminent risks to commuter safety, such as a malfunction or terrorist act.

The Bill, which was put forth by Second Minister for Transport Ng Chee Meng, will be read for a second time at the next Parliament sitting.
