ECRL project inappropriate: Jomo

  • Jomo says the passenger and cargo load will not be large enough to support the RM60bn project.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 (MySinchew) -- Jomo Kwame Sundaram, a member of the Council of Elders, says the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project linking Port Klang and major towns on the East Coast is not an appropriate project, as the country has to bear the risk of debt and interest over the next 20 years

He also queried why the existing railroad is abandoned, adding that the passenger and cargo load would not be large enough to support the project.

The entire construction cost will exceed RM60 billion while Malaysia is seeking RM55 billion loan from China in order to implement the project.
