Construction of JB-Singapore RTS Link on S’pore side has reached 50 per cent mark: S. Iswaran

Singapore’s Transport Minister, S. Iswaran, announced on Thursday that the construction of the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link on Singapore’s side has reached the 50% mark. The project will connect RTS Link tunnels with a marine viaduct and a span bridge, which will help to ease traffic congestion and improve overall railway infrastructure.

The civil construction of the viaduct marks a significant milestone in the project’s progress. Additionally, work is underway to bridge Woodlands North Station with Bukit Chagar Station in Johor Bahru, which will further enhance connectivity between Singapore and Malaysia.

According to Singapore’s Minister for Communications and Information, S. Iswaran, the project began construction after breaking ground on May 11, 2021. The completion date of the project is still unknown, but Iswaran visited the project site on Thursday to inspect the progress made so far.

This project is part of Malaysia’s transport master plan 2013 and Singapore’s Land Transport Master Plan 2013 to improve connectivity and mobility between both countries. The JB-Singapore RTS Link is a cross-border rail system that will connect Johor Bahru in Malaysia to Woodlands in Singapore. The line stage 6 construction will involve building four stations, viaducts, tunnels and bridges over a total distance of 4km.
