think positive lah.
more choices better mah.
at least jam at checkpt would improve if you decided to drive.
If you feel to tired to drive then sleep 90min on the train lah.
I think high speed train is way better than air plane. The waiting time for air travel is too long. You need to be at the air port 90 mins in advance, wait for boarding, wait for luggage,...
Last time I boarded a Shinkansen the waiting time is almost same as normal MRT. In fact, I arrived 10 minutes earlier and boarded the wrong train because I thought train would wait for 10 mins or so. It only waited for 2 minutes for you to get on the train with your luggage, sit tight and feel like taking MRT with dedicated chairs.
i like sitting on airplane. even on shuttle trips (almost typed shutter, oops!) there is a special feeling.
Maybe i like takeoff and landings a lot.
Don't have high expectation. Just add another 10 years more for whatever they said.

Radio news: line to cost S$12 billion. Tickets between S$120-S$140 (iirc).
I can only see better prospects for Malaysia in their properties, businesses & Genting. Was reading the Star just now & they're targetting stations in Iskandar, Muar, Batu Gajah (Melaka) & Seremban before KL. Costs estimated to be Rm60-80 billion including land acquisition.
It'll be awesome if we can have an hourly train from either sides but tickets should cost S$200+/-. Currently, the KLIA Express railway operates between airport & KL Sentral is RM70, two ways & takes 28mins or so. Fast, stress-free so it can be done. They say it does 160km/h.
For passport clearing they already have MACs which i'm using so no more stamping & I'm sure it'll be further eased in future.
Only problem is delivery & quality as there's plenty of faith in their corruption
It is not necessary in the first place.
An undersea tunnel is subject to constant stresses and danger of sea water ingress at high pressures.
Any crack is a death sentence for hundreds of train passengers.
Trying to rescue a disaster-struck train in an undersea tunnel is near-impossible.
The UK-France undersea rail tunnel is also a sitting duck for would be suicide terrorists.
