JOHOR BARU: The Johor Baru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link and the Gemas-Johor Baru Electrified Double-Tracking Project will continue to be the government's priority projects, says Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi.
The Johor Mentri Besar said the RTS Link is now at 32.7% completion, while the double-tracking project is 90.6% complete and is expected to be ready by April 2026.
“I would like to thank Transport Minister Anthony Loke for meeting with me today (Tuesday, March 28). We both agreed that these projects should continue to be prioritised.
“At the same time, another important project for the state's connectivity is the Iskandar Rapid Transit, which has now reached 24.1% completion and is expected to be ready by the end of 2025,” he said in a statement on Facebook.
He added that the state government was also grateful to the Federal Government, especially the Transport Ministry, for the MyBas Johor Baru service.
“This will provide Bangsa Johor with a public bus service covering 19 routes stretching 1,070km with a payment of RM50 for 30 days.
"We will look at how MyBas and the current free bus service, Bas Muafakat Johor under the Johor Public Transport Corporation (PAJ), can complement each other and improve the public transportation service in the state,” he added.
Also present at Onn Hafiz and Loke's meeting were ministry secretary-general Datuk Jana Santhiran Muniayan, Johor works, transportation and infrastructure committee chairman Mohamad Fazli Mohamad Salleh, and deputy state secretary (Development) Datuk Mohammed Ridha Abd Kadir.
