ECRL Project Reaches 65% Progress Across 4 States

Transport Minister Anthony Loke has announced that the construction of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project has reached an average of 65% completion as of April. The project spans across Selangor, Pahang, Kelantan, and Terengganu.

Specifically, the project in Selangor has progressed by over 26% as of last month, which aligns with the schedule for preparing the ECRL line from Gombak to Port Klang by December 2027, while operations are set to begin in January 2028.

As of now, over 100 km of track has been laid, and over 1 km of the railway track can be laid each day, making the ECRL project highly efficient. The Selangor network of the ECRL, which is nearly 120 km long, will consist of five stations, namely the Gombak, Kapar, and Jalan Kastam Integrated Terminals for passengers only, while the Bandar Serendah and Puncak Alam stations are connecting stations for passengers and cargo.

Loke explains that the Serendah area will become the main station connecting the Port Klang and East Coast routes, making it an important logistics hub. The ECRL line, which crosses Selangor, can spur the tourism, hospitality, and business sector in Batang Kali, which also has the potential to become a railway transport centre to drive the industry.

Land acquisition for the construction of the train infrastructure on the East Coast has been completed, while developers in Selangor have been given another year to resolve the matter.
