Malaysia and Singapore reopened their borders on April 1 to allow vaccinated people to cross the Causeway in their own cars.

After that, cross-border bus and taxi service resumed on May 1.

Before the pandemic, Causeway was one of the busiest land checkpoints in the world, with about 300,000 people passing by every day.

The Minister of Transport spoke with reporters after visiting the construction site of the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link Project in Bukit Chagal on Saturday (June 11th).

He said the project was 17 percent complete.

“I’m happy with the progress of the 17% RTS Link project. It’s technically okay, but it just bypasses the pipeline that belongs to Singapore’s PUB,” he added.

“The detours of the 900mm and 1,600mm pipelines have been completed in terms of policy agreements involving the Republic and will be submitted to the Cabinet shortly.”

The RTS Link is a 4km rail network connecting Singapore’s Bukit Chagar, Johor Bahru and Woodlands.

It is expected to be able to transport 10,000 people per hour in each direction.
