PONTIAN: A new road will be built by 2020 to link Tanjung Pelepas in Gelang Patah to Tanjung Bin here, and is expected to cut down the one-hour travel time by more than half.

Work on the 7.5km road is expected to start in September and the whole project, which includes a bridge at Sungai Pulai, would cost about RM650mil, according to Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin (pic).
