PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong received a visit from the chairman of Prasarana Malaysia Bhd to discuss on the railway system in the country.

The Transport Minister said the meeting with Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman at his office in Putrajaya had touched on the direction of Prasarana.

"In our meeting, we had the opportunity to exchange our views on the direction and challenges of Prasarana Group in the development of the railway system in Malaysia, especially in the post-Covid-19 era.

"At the same time, I had also updated Datuk Seri Tajuddin on the negotiation status of the Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS)," said Dr Wee in a Facebook post on Monday (June 29).

Earlier this month, it was reported that the bilateral discussions on the RTS link project had been extended by three months.

Dr Wee had said many economic and social sectors had been adversely affected as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, including those in Malaysia and Singapore.

The bilateral discussions on the Johor Baru-RTS link project had been extended by three months to July 31 from the previous April 30 deadline.
