But the project company will continue to work on existing contracts and tenders.
Over 100 specialists working on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur High Speed Rail (HSR) will be redeployed following the agreement between Singapore and Malaysia to suspend the project, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) revealed.
In a press query, LTA said these specialists are part of an infrastructure company called SG HSR, which was formed by Singapore in 2017.
“During the period of suspension, SG HSR staff will be offered alternative job roles in LTA. We are confident that they will continue to contribute effectively in the LTA family in the roles that we take up during this suspension period,” LTA added.
Moreover, SG HSR will still be working with government agencies and external stakeholders to manage the suspension of the project. It will still work on following up on existing contracts and ongoing tenders.
“Subsequently, SG HSR’s work is expected to be scaled down until the HSR project resumes,” LTA concluded.
