ECRL revival expected to boost East Coast tourism industry

The new East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) route is projected to boost the tourism industry in the East Coast with proposed new stations located at strategic tourist hotspots, according to industry players. Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association (Mita) president Uzaidi Udanis said it is vital for the government to retain rail stations at high-density towns in order to provide an adequate and efficient facility to serve incoming tourists.“We need to make sure these stations have facilities in Kota Baru, Kuala Terengganu and Kuantan, Pahang, which are the main towns in the east coast corridor, instead of stopping at small cities that are not viable,” he told The Malaysian Reserve (TMR) via a phone interview recently.
