KUALA LUMPUR: The RM55bil East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project is a worthy investment, especially for those in the east coast as it will change their economy and social life in the long term. — BernamaIt was reported that east coast's gross domestic product was expected to rise by at least 1.5 %, thanks to the ECRL project. “The business environment will change as the ECRL will open up more industrial areas and also support the current industrial areas in the east coast. When more industrial areas are available, people will start to move from the west coast to the east coast. If Malaysians can be taught to see the environment advantages rail travel has, the ECRL could be the preferred service for them,” he said.
