Apr 16, 2019
Malaysia revived the ECRL project to avoid a RM21.8 bil cancellation penalty.
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says the government was faced with a choice - to either renegotiate or pay termination costs with nothing to show for it.
The East Coast Rail Link now costs RM44 bil, a third less than the original price.
However, Tun M reiterated the government will not go ahead with the China-backed Trans-Sabah Gas Pipeline project.
