Malay Mail: PM Anwar, Premier Li officiate Gombak ECRL groundbreaking ceremony (VIDEO)

KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and visiting China’s Premier Li Qiang came together today in a significant display of bilateral cooperation to officiate the groundbreaking ceremony for the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) Gombak Integrated Terminal station.

Today’s groundbreaking ceremony paves the way for the scheduled completion of the ECRL rail alignment from Kota Bharu, Kelantan to the Gombak Integrated Terminal, Selangor in December 2026.

Located on an 8.73-hectare site, which is positioned at the edge of the ‘Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge,’ the longest quartz formation in the world, the ECRL Gombak Integrated Terminal station is also expected to link with the existing Gombak LRT station to facilitate connectivity via the LRT Kelana Jaya Line, according to the statement by Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd (MRL).

“The ECRL alignment between Gombak and Port Klang is expected to be completed by December 2027 instead,” the statement read.

The station, built for passenger use, will feature an elevated platform and a range of facilities such as a car park, pick-up and drop-off area, covered walkways, staff quarters, and garden-landscaped areas.

The groundbreaking ceremony is part of the events for Li’s three-day official visit to Malaysia in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and China.
