Singapore-Malaysia causeway light rail link project to begin end-November

The much-delayed JB-Singapore Rapid Transit (RTS) Link that connects Bukit Chagar in Johor Baru with Woodlands in Singapore may finally break ground at the end of this month, following a virtual launch planned on November 22 in conjunction with the birthday of the sultan of Johor Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar.

The Johor Royal Press Office said the ruler has been presented with project details, including launch arrangements and final designs for the station.

The RTS Link is expected to ease causeway congestions, improve connectivity between the two countries and generate shared economic and social benefits. When complete, it will be a standalone Light Rail Transit (LRT) System with the capacity to serve up to 10,000 commuters during peak periods, for every hour and in each direction.
