The 665-km East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) will traverse the East Coast states of Kelantan, Terengganu, and Pahang before linking the Klang Valley on the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. As a national infrastructure, the ECRL will link cities and towns as well as upgrade public transportation along its rail network.
At speeds of up to 160km/h, the ECRL passenger trains will significantly cut travel time from Kota Bharu to ITT Gombak to approximately 4 hours.
The ECRL is also expected to spur commercial activities, drive investments, increase job opportunities, and boost tourism activities along its rail network.
The ECRL Project is expected to be completed by end of 2026
