“I’m pleased with their presence to give a briefing on the project (RTS) by coming to Johor despite having busy work schedules. I also emphasise that this project needs to proceed smoothly according to its construction schedule,” His Majesty said in a Facebook post.
Sultan Ibrahim had graced the groundbreaking ceremony of the project site virtually on 22 November, where the site will accommodate the immigration, customs and quarantine building within Bukit Chagar.
Aside from further strengthening the ties with Singapore, the RTS Link project’s implementation will also provide socio-economic benefits to Johor as well as change its public transport landscape.
The 4km rail service will connect Malaysia and Singapore via a terminal at Bukit Chagar in Johor Bahru and a terminal at the Woodlands North station in Singapore.
Once completed in the next six years, the RTS can serve up to 10,000 passengers per hour for each route.
