TRANSPORT (MoT) Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (picture) has expressed confidence that the Selangor government and authorities will cooperate with the federal government on the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) 3.0 project, as the mega project could not afford any more delays.

Wee said if there are to be further delays, the 665km-long rail service from Kota Baru to Port Klang would not be able to fully operate, besides the country is also facing the prospect of suffering from losses in servicing the loans.

“I am confident most of them are professional officers, especially the politicians. I have full confidence that the mentri besar and state authorities will give us full cooperation,” he said commenting on Selangor executive councillor Datuk Teng Chang Khim’s statement that the state government will not help acquire land for the project if the federal government insisted on the northern alignment of the ECRL.
