The 640km East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) network will link the East Coast states of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang with Negeri Sembilan, Selangor and Federal Territory of Putrajaya,  spurring the growth and development of the corridor along the alignment.

The passenger trains will travel at 160km/h, cutting travel time from Kota Bharu to Putrajaya to approximately 4 hours, hence allowing for a more comfortable yet convenient travelling experience between the East and West Coasts of Peninsular Malaysia. 

The ECRL Project is expected to be completed by end of 2026.
