“Do not politicise ECRL !!!”

ECRL railway KL singaporeMO, 11/8/2017, KAJANG – The expansive East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) network which is expected to halve travel time from Klang Valley to the East Coast should not be politicised or turned into a “racial issue”.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the RM55 billion-endeavour was undoubtedly a people-centric project pertinent in spurring economic growth and connectivity.

“I would like to emphasise that the ECRL is one of the most important projects for the nation. It is a game changer for the east coast. It is for the country’s economic development and to help us reach greater heights. The theme is very clear, we are pushing for connecting lines and accelerating growth,” Liow said.

As China Communications Construction Company is the main contractor for the ECRL which was launched in Kuantan on Wednesday, The Star Online said certain groups had claimed the project as being “too Chinese”. Liow also said any action taken against the project would harm Malaysia-China bilateral ties.
