Malaysia and Singapore agree to extend RTS link deadline again

Malaysia and Singapore have agreed to defer the construction of the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) link yet again, adding to the previous six-month extension requested by Putrajaya in April.

The new deadline has been set for Oct 31, and will incur no additional cost.

The initial six-month extension was for Malaysia to review the RM4 billion (S$1.3 billion) project to build a 4km cross-border RTS link from Woodlands North in Singapore to Bukit Chagar in Johor Bahru. The service has a capacity of 10,000 passengers per hour each way.
