Preliminary Study On Proposed Ipoh-Lumut Train Service In Progress

LUMUT, Feb 4  A preliminary study on the proposed Ipoh-Lumut train service is still being carried out by the Transport Ministry and Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said.

He said the team was gathering information to determine the feasibility of the proposed train service.

“The preliminary study has identified the route for the proposed train service which is Ipoh-Batu Gajah-Tronoh-Seri Iskandar-Kampung Acheh here,” he told reporters at a Chinese New Year open house here Friday.

In September last year, Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir requested the Transport Ministry to carry out a feasibility study on having a train service between Ipoh and Lumut to spur development, especially in the Manjung district.

He said the proposed train service could help to bring in more tourists to the Lumut-Pangkor tourism zone, as well as provide an alternative transportation of goods to and from Lumut Port.
