Singapore-Johor RTS link project details are open for public inspection: Malaysia


Two months after construction started in Johor, a public inspection of three months has begun in Malaysia of a rail project connecting Singapore to Johor. The Rapid Transit System Link’s (RTS Link) Bukit Chagar Station in Johor will be operated by Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp). Details of the project have been published for inspection by the public from January 15, 2021 to April 15, 2021.
For public scrutiny information on the RTS Link project, station site context plans, plans and alignment profiles, trains and information about possible land acquisitions for the project will be prepared when the public inspection is conducted.
Objections can be made or feedback can be given between Jan 15 and April 15, 2021. On the Mass Rapid Transit Corporation website, an online Public Objection Form is available with public inspection materials.
The Land Public Transport Act 2010 has mandated the public inspection. As the lockdown is imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic, it will be done virtually. The RTS link will be 4 km long with 1.3 km in Singapore and 2.7km of the route in Malaysia.
According to the website of MRT Corp, the project’s infrastructure work will be completed by 2024. After the infrastructure is completed, installation of system works will begin. It is expected that by 2016, the RTS link will be completed.
The RTS Link is set to operate from 6:00 am to 12:00 midnight daily. The journey will take not more than 6 minutes. Trains will operate at intervals of 3.6 minutes during peak hours and during off peak timings, trains will operate at intervals of 6 minutes. Up to 10,000 passengers can be served per hour in each direction.
