Feasibility study of the proposed railway linking Samalaju-Bintulu-Tanjung Manis is ‘in progress’ according to reliable documents sighted by BtuWeekly.

The sources who are familiar with the details of the feasibility study, however declined to be interviewed citing confidentiality and not authorized to comment on the project in the media.

Former Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud then said the railway would enhance transportation facilities within Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) areas.

“There is a need to have railway link to support development of heavy industries and halal hub located at Tanjung Manis, Mukah and Samalaju in Bintulu within SCORE, to transport palm oil, sago, aluminium and other industrial products in bulk efficiently,” said Taib.

The feasibility study was supposed to have started end of 2011.
