PRIME Minister Najib Razak today described the establishment of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) as a “game changer” and “mindset changer” for Malaysia as it will significantly cut travel time to and from the east coast of the peninsula.

He said the rail journey from the Integrated Transport Terminal (ITT) in Gombak, Selangor to Kota Baru, Kelantan was expected to be less than four hours compared to the average eight hours and even up to 12 hours or more, during the festive seasons, thus making the ECRL a comfortable alternative transportation medium once completed.
