Other Services – Transport

Transport

The transport services sub-sector consists of maritime transport, aviation, and highway construction and maintenance. In 2019, a total of eight aviation-related projects were approved with investments worth RM481.40 million, of which 85% or RM411.40 million came from domestic sources.

 

Malaysia makes continuous efforts to provide safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable transport services, and going forward the availability of an excellent transport system is a fundamental building block towards becoming a high-income nation.

 

Our National Transport Policy 2019-2030 (NTP) reflects this commitment with various strategic directions outlined to enhance our economic competitiveness, provide strong social impact particularly with respect to inclusivity and accessibility, while reducing the negative impact of the transport system on the environment. The NTP is set to further strengthen national transport infrastructure and ensure sustainable development of the national transport system.

Notable Infrastructure Projects

The East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), a 640-kilometre railway connecting Peninsular Malaysia’s East Coast with its West Coast, is among the notable national infrastructure projects. Once completed, this “land bridge” between Port Klang and Kuantan Port is set to increase Malaysia’s international trade activities by facilitating cargo travel between the coasts, while allowing alternative maritime trade entry carrying both cargo as well as passenger traffic. It is expected to reduce the travel time between Kota Bharu and Putrajaya to approximately four hours. 

 

The ECRL, which will interchange with various other rail services, including Express Rail Link (ERL), Mass Rapid Transit 2 (MRT2), and Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), is expected to be a catalyst for a number of Economic Accelerator Projects (EAPs). A dedicated team within MIDA has been established to promote, facilitate and monitor the implementation of the EAPs. The team has executed various action plans and continues to facilitate more than 80 engagements with various stakeholders including respective State Governments, Ministries and Agencies, business chambers as well as developers.
