    Default Will we have a Shinkansen style fast rail to KL?

    So, when can we have it completed, to go to KL in 90 minutes?

    Japan offers Malaysia high-speed rail technology for KL-S'pore rail link

    Abe + Biden both in town today, so coincidental.

    Sooner or later... the High Speed Rail was been planned long ago... just that Dr M and S'pore Govt can't see eye to eye on any agreement back then.

    Btw... there is no 'coincidental' in such matters... both side must have planned some time ago...

    I believe the agreement with PM Najib is to end at Woodlands... stretch all the way to China (not in one go)... but for now, Sin to Thai boarder... at least that's my 'understanding'.

    after I see the Spanish crash, I think I won't ever ride on it.

    Ever see Bus crash, Car crash, Plane crash, Boat collision and Vehicle Crashing into people on the streets... and I'll bet you are somehow still getting out of your house to go somewhere somehow....

    Depends on how long it takes... if under 3hr and stop near the heart of the city... thumb up. If longer than 3hrs and far from the city... I'll rather take Plane... got Duty Free.. LOL

    it will never materialize, not in the next 50 years.

    the return will not justify the cost of maintenance

    The net result of it will be making faster for ladyboys from the North State to swarm Singapore.
