ABDUL RAHMAN DAHLAN EXPLAINS THAT RTS IS BASED ON EXTENSIVE STUDIES AND AGREEMENT WITH SINGAPORE
KUALA LUMPUR: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan explained that the Rapid Transit System (RTS) JB-Singapore project and alignment is based on a series of extensive discussions and studies covering technical, alignment and viability of the project over several years, which in the end had been agreed with the Singapore government.
“We acknowledge the issues and concerns raised by His Royal Highness Sultan of Johor and will seek an immediate audience with His Royal Highness as soon as the palace has confirmed the date.
“Malaysia and Singapore can look forward to better connectivity and accessibility once the proposed RTS project, which will connect Johor Baru and Singapore, materialises in 2024.
“The RTS would take the pressure off the Causeway and save journey time as it would be a station-to-station connectivity with integrated Customs and Immigration checkpoints.”
