Electrified Double Track Project (EDTP)

Electrified Double Track Project (EDTP)/

The Electrified Double Track Project (EDTP), spanning 329 km, retrofitted a century-old rail network which used a single-track design with state-of-the-art electrification and signaling systems. Once a nine-hour journey between Ipoh, Perak and Padang Basar, Perlis, the interstate train journey now takes only three hours. Apart from the two parallel rail tracks, the EDTP included new stations, bridges, depots, and control building.

MMC-Gamuda’s experience and resourcefulness became integral to ensure the project was constructed with minimal disruption to the existing service and surroundings, all more so when employees’ safety and compliance standards are of utmost priority.
