Railway freight to increase by 1,300 trains, says Rail Minister


By Michael Linton | The Straits Times | Sep 08, 2019 12:24:17Railway freight volumes are set to rise by 1.4 per cent over the next three years, following a boost from the rail sector.

The Rail Minister, Datuk Seri Abdul Aziz Siddique, said on Wednesday that the railway freight volumes will rise by approximately 1,400 trains per month from next year to July 2019.

“In the first quarter of 2019, we expect the railway to increase freight volumes by approximately 500 trains per day from next April to July,” he said.

“The total amount of freight that is sent by rail to Singapore will be approximately 2,300 million tonnes in 2019.

This amount of cargo will increase by approximately 150 million tonnes from July 2019 to July 2020.”

Rail freight volume will rise from 2,600 million tonnes last year to 2,900 million tonnes by 2019, said Mr Siddique.

Rail freight volumes have been on the rise due to a combination of better rail links, and a combination between the increased number of trains on the rail network, and increased freight volumes on the sea ports.

Since 2014, Singapore has been seeing an increase in rail freight volumes.

According to a report by the Singapore Transport Administration (STA), the average number of rail freight trains in Singapore increased by 9 per cent last year.

The STA also noted that in 2018, the Singapore railway freight network experienced the largest freight volume increase in the country, as the number of freight trains increased by nearly 8 per cent.

Last year, the average train journey time on the Singapore rail network was approximately 8 minutes, compared to an average of 9 minutes in 2018.

However, the STA said in 2019, rail freight will increase in order to provide greater safety to the public.

In order to further facilitate rail freight movements, the Ministry has established a new rail freight company in the first year of the new Rail Safety Program (RSP).

The company will operate out of the Port of Singapore and will operate a number of stations on the coast of the Singapore.

Mr Siddique said that Singapore Railways will be increasing the number and types of services that are allowed to be run by rail freight companies and will also be increasing safety measures.

The new rail safety initiative will be a catalyst for the rail freight industry, which is facing increasing safety risks, he said, adding that the increase in freight volumes is due to the increased rail freight capacity.

While Singapore Rail will be adding a new train station in 2020, the new railway safety initiative has not yet been launched, he added.
