An international consortium formed by Ineco, Adif and the Malaysian companies HSS Integrated and Wong & Partners (Baker & McKenzie International) has been awarded the contract to develop Malaysia’s train operation and infrastructure management regulatory framework.
The aim of the contract is to provide support for the implementation of a vertical separation model, where the companies commissioned for infrastructure and for train operation will coexist, and also includes the preparation of a legal framework and a range of regulatory policies, to cover freight and passenger transport.
The project, commissioned by the Land Public Transport Comission (SPAD, for its Malay initials), is part of the country’s National Land Public Transport Master Plan. The objectives of the Plan, passed in 2013, include improving railway connectivity, accessibility, quality of service, reliability, security and sustainability.
With this contract, Ineco is positioning itself in a region which is in continuous growth and has great commercial opportunities, where it has already developed projects including the traffic demand study for the future high speed line connecting Malaysia and Singapore.
