Halogilat-Tenom Railway Upgrade Expected To Be Completed Early 2022 – Henry

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 18 — The project to upgrade the Halogilat-Tenom railway track in Sabah is expected to be ready early next year.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Henry Sum Agong said this is one of the two priority projects, to upgrade the infrastructure for better railway services in Sabah.

The other project is the procurement of three sets of diesel multiple units as well as six non-powered car units, which is also expected to be completed early next year.

Henry said this during the oral question-and-answer session at the Dewan Rakyat, today, when replying to a question by Noorita Sual (PH-Tenom) who wanted to know the initiatives undertaken by the federal government to upgrade the railway transport services in Pangi, Tenom.

Apart from that, Henry said the additional upgrading works for rail transport services in Gorge Line, Sabah, between Halogilat and Tenom stations, are expected to be ready this year.

He said the project under the 11th Malaysia Plan is 99.5 per cent-ready.

“This project (Gorge Line) has received an allocation of RM2 million for 2022 for account certification and final payment,” he added.
