Coastal Modern Rapid Railway System (RRS) in Sarawak

A great development for Sarawak for the next 8 years as mention by our Chief Minister, Pehin Sri Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud yesterday that A modern Rapid Railway System (RRS) will be built within the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) within the next seven years.

He said the proposed railway, which will be the state’s first, would most likely stretch from the proposed Samalaju Port to Igan for a start and the next government’s plan is to have it all the way from Samalaju to Tanjung Manis by 2030.

Proposal to built up the RRS in the central region may benefit the SCORE project and also the Tanjung Manis Halal Hub because the industry needs a fast form of transportation of the raw materials, as well as the finished products, from the industry to the port and vice versa. Anyhow, we hope this project may successfully plan.
