JOHOR BARU: The Johor state government has suggested the setting up of a ferry service as an alternative mode of transportation for commuters travelling to and fro Singapore.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Mohamed Khaled Nordin (pic) said the proposal was to help ease the traffic congestion at the Causeway and the Second Link faced by road users and commuters who travelled between Malaysia and Singapore via Johor Baru.

He said the ferry terminal would offer services from Kong Kong in Pasir Gudang to Singapore’s Changi Ferry Terminal, which offers ferry services to Tanjung Belungkor in Desaru here and Batam, Indonesia.

“The proposed ferry terminal, which includes water taxi services, would enable those staying in the east of Johor Baru like those in Pasir Gudang and working in Singapore to cut down on travel time,” he said on Tuesday.

Mohamed Khaled said this when attending the Johor Baru-Singapore Taxi Services Terminal Management Hari Raya open house.
