Work starts at Woodlands station for Johor transit link

It will make travelling to Malaysia, when we can, far, far easier.

Talk of the Johor Bahru- Singapore Rapid Transport System or the RTS has been just that, talk, for such a long time that we thought it might never happen. Well, good news for when we can finally travel, as work has finally started on the Woodlands North Station. 

CNA reported this week that the RTS Link Woodlands North station will be built underground and have a link to Customs and Immigration, as well has having a quarantine building. The station will be directly connected to Bukit Chagar station in Johor through a 25-meter elevated track above the Straits of Johor. The project is slated to be finished in 2024 with estimates that it could serve up to 10,000 commuters per hour during peak periods.  

Singapore’s Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung told reporters that he was confident the project would be completed on schedule and highlighted the economic and social benefits to both countries by saying: “With a capacity of up to 10,000 commuters per hour per direction, the RTS Link can potentially shift thousands of motorcycles and cars off the causeway, while providing a faster and more comfortable commute."
