In October 2016, the Malaysian government announced that China Communications Construction Co. will construct and China Export-Import Bank will finance the construction of the 620 km East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), a project estimated to cost RM55bn. The ECRL will connect Kuantan Port on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia with Port Klang on the west coast.
This will allow the transshipment of goods between the Straits of Malacca and the South China Sea without having to go past Singapore.
