ISKANDAR PUTERI: Tourism Malaysia wants the Immigration Department to address the congestion at the Johor Causeway and the Second Link Crossing. 

Its director-general Datuk Seri Mirza Mohammad said it would help to ease traffic movements on both land links especially on weekends, public holidays and school holidays. 

He said apart from Singaporeans who regularly cross over to Johor Baru, there are also foreign tourists entering Malaysia via the Causeway near Johor Baru and the Second Link in Tanjung Kupang, Gelang Patah. 

“Singapore is an important market for us and we want to make travel easy for them,” Mirza said in a press conference on Thursday (Jan 18) at the ground-breaking ceremony of Sea Life in Legoland.

Mirza said Tourism Malaysia also welcomed plans by the Government to reduce toll charges at the Second Link Crossing. 

“Any move to ease congestion at both links is good as it will boost the tourism sector, not only in Johor but the whole of Malaysia,” he said.

Sea Life is the world’s largest aquarium brand. 

The ceremony today was officiated by Johor Tourism, Trade and Consumerism committee chairman Datuk Tee Siew Kiong.
