Around 100 houses to be demolished in Negeri Sembilan for HSR project

SEREMBAN, 24 Aug 2017: 

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan yesterday gave the assurance that only 100 houses would be demolished to make way for the Negeri Sembilan segment of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) tracks.

According to the original plan, he said about 1,000 houses were to have been affected by the HSR tracks in the state.

“This is the best outcome following several changes to the alignment. As for the finalised alignment, an HSR station will be built in Labu, near the Kota Seriemas Golf and Country Club, instead of in Seremban according to the earlier plan.”

Speaking after the weekly meeting of the state executive council here, Mohamad said the final alignment would shorten the length of the tracks in the state from 54km to 51km.

“The alignment in the state will also encompass a 1km-long tunnel. We will also have roads linking the North-South Expressway and the Kajang-Seremban Expressway to the HSR station in Labu to facilitate travel by the commuters.”
