JOHOR BARU: After seeing improvements in traffic management at the two land border crossings here, Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz is now shifting his attention to pedestrians and bus passengers coming from and going to Singapore.

He expressed his gratitude that the traffic flow was getting better on motorcycle and car lanes at Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex here and Sultan Abu Bakar Complex (KSAB) in Iskandar Puteri.

“We now need to improve things for pedestrians and bus passengers,” he said in a Facebook post on Tuesday (May 9).

In an earlier post the Machap assemblyman, who has been making regular visits to BSI and KSAB, said he paid a courtesy call on Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail in Putrajaya on Monday (May 8).

He added that on behalf of the state government, he appreciated the commitment shown by Saifuddin as well as the ministry’s senior officials, in particular its secretary-general Datuk Ruji Ubi and all of those involved in addressing traffic congestion issues at the Causeway and Second Link.

“But it does not mean that it is far from done. I have raised several issues that I hope can be a catalyst for a solution.

“This includes the increase in Immigration Department personnel as well as management at both BSI and KSAB,” he said.

Onn Hafiz also said he was hopeful that the efforts made by both Johor and Putrajaya can resolve the long-standing issue of congestion.
