Floods, landslides force cancellation of KTMB services

KUALA LUMPUR: Floods and landslides between Bahau and Tampin in Negri Sembilan and Kluang in Johor have forced Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) to cancel several train services to the east and south.

In a statement, KTMB said among the affected services were Ekspress Rakyat connecting KL Sentral and Singapore, and Ekspress Sinaran Timur connecting Kuala Lipis and Singapore.

Passengers on the Gemas-Singapore service would be ferried by bus from Gemas to Kluang before proceeding with their train journey to Singapore while the service from Singapore to Gemas would stop at Kluang and passengers would be ferried to Gemas, it said.

Passengers who were affected by the cancellation could either ask for a refund or have the journey changed to other dates, it said.

Further information can be obtained from KTMB at 1-300-88-5862.
