A Brunei-based company, Brunergy Utama Sdn Bhd, is set to construct a high-speed rail network linking Malaysia and Indonesia. As reported by Nikkei Asia on Apr. 2, the rail network will connect Brunei with Sabah and Sarawak in Malaysia and the IKN Nusantara, Samarinda, and Balikpapan in Indonesia.

The high-speed rail project, named Trans Borneo, spans a total distance of 1,620 kilometers across three countries from the west to the east of Borneo Island. According to a statement from Brunergy Utama cited by Nikkei Asia, the first phase of the high-speed rail project will link Pontianak, Kuching, and Kinabalu in Malaysia to the Tutong district in Brunei. Meanwhile, the second phase of Trans Borneo will traverse Kalimantan's southern and eastern regions, including Samarinda and Balikpapan. "This high-speed rail will also connect to Indonesia's new capital, Nusantara," stated the announcement from Brunergy Utama.
