Nilai To Have An ECRL Station?

Aside from Kuala Klawang in Jelebu, Nilai may become one of the stations for the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project.

This comes after proposal to include a station there was flouted during a meeting between Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd (MRL) and the State Government, said Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.

“The state government was informed that the ECRL route has not been finalised and needed to be studied from various aspects such as the social, environmental and operational impact, service level, unity and integration aspect, costs, and challenges in the implementation,” he said.

“In this regard, the first session of the discussion on the selected route was held with MRL on 8 August. MRL had proposed a route that includes two stations in Negeri Sembilan, at Kuala Klawang and Nilai. There will be a briefing on the latest route for state councillors on 18 September.”

Aminuddin noted that the ECRL development would bring various benefits such as job opportunities in transportation and construction and economic growth for Jelebu, reported Bernama.

“The business environment will also be transformed, with the influx of workers. It will open more opportunities for small and medium economies besides increasing demand for food, housing, shops and transportation,” he explained.

“Aside from that, the project could also be a catalyst for the tourism sector in Jelebu and at the same time promote existing ecotourism products such as the Kenaboi State Park and other forest eco parks.”

Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan (BN-Rantau) suggested for the Nilai ECRL station to be transformed into an integrated transport hub.

“We want to propose to the state government to take into account the Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0 (MVV 2.0) development as there was in the initial plan, a station in the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore high-speed rail (HSR) project that had been approved as a station of international standard,” he emphasised.

“We propose that the Nilai station be made an integrated transportation hub and if possible, for the ECRL line to be extended to enable east coast passengers to reach Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) directly.”
