http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast

JOHOR BARU: Train commuters can utilise the new JB Sentral station as it began operations on Oct 21.

The new facility replaces the Johor Baru train station which will be converted into a museum.

JB Sentral is able to accommodate up to 2,500 commuters daily compared with the old station which was built in 1932 that caters to 500 people.

The new station as it is equipped with modern facilities and is more spacious.

Apart from KTM Bhd, other agencies operating at the JB Sentral includes the Immigration Department, Police, Customs, Internal security Ministry, Health Department, Malaysian Tourism Promotion Board, Malaysian Quarantine and Inspection Services and the Health Ministry’s Pharmaceutical Division.

The number of shops at the new station would also be increased from one to 18 retail outlets and 30 kiosks.

Some 500 parking lots have been allocated for the convenience of commuters using the station.

Johor Baru’s old train station that would be a new mini-museum is scheduled to open next year.

For details, call KTMB’s hotline at 1300 88 5862 or the JB Sentral office at 07-218 8000.

New water transport system to be introduced in state
By ZAZALI MUSA Wednesday November 17, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast

JOHOR BARU: A water transport system will make its debut in Iskandar Malaysia within the next few years to provide an alternative transportation mode for commuters.

Danga Bay Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Lim Kang Hoo said the company would introduce water taxi services from Danga Bay here to Puteri Harbour, Nusajaya and even to Singapore.

He said visitors entering Malaysia via Johor Baru in future would have a choice of either using land transport via the Causeway and the Second Link, or the water taxi services.

He said the new Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex (CIQP) and ferry terminal to be built at Puteri Harbour under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) would help to increase the number of visitors to Johor Baru.

“Apart from attracting Singaporeans, ferry services from the nearby Riau Islands in Indonesia can be extended to the CIQP to ferry tourists from the islands to Johor Baru,” he added.

Lim, who is also the CEO of Teras Hijaujaya Sdn Bhd, said this at the launch of the Teras Hijaujaya’s commercial property project, Danga Utama @ Skudai recently.

The project is spread over a 7.3ha site located along Jalan Skudai and Jalan Sutera Danga and flanked by Sungai Skudai, which is one of Johor’s most important rivers that flows into Danga Bay.

Sungai Skudai is one of the rivers to be rehabilitated by the Federal Government as part of the RM330mil budget in the 10MP, under the comprehensive river beautification programme.

Phase One of the Danga Utama project comprises 129 units of three-storey shop offices and six blocks of six-storey corporateoffices.

“We will build a jetty in the phase two of the project to cater for water taxi services from Danga Bay to Danga Utama,” Lim explained.

He added that phase two would have high-end condominium tower blocks and retail outlets overlooking Sungai Skudai and the project would keep the company busy for five years with a gross development value of RM500mil.

The new bridge replacing the old causeway, so it is high enough for boats to past.

I can see that people are getting really frustrated about all the talks and few actions by the authority. Either that, or just dumb actions that never really get JB anywhere. When can we get a world class transportation system in our urban areas?

I hope on the current wave of warm Sg-My relations, both sides would cooperate and get rid of the causeway once for all.

I'm still not too sure if a bridge or a tunnel would be better. A tunnel would be less obstructive, but a tunnel large enough to handle the causeway's traffic would be quite expensive to build..

Posted: 01 December 2010 1925 hrs

SINGAPORE: When the Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link between Singapore and Iskandar Malaysia gets underway by 2018, commuters would need to clear immigration only once for each way of travel.

That's because the Singapore-Malaysia Joint Ministerial Committee for Iskandar Malaysia has agreed to set up a co-located Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) facility in Singapore and another in Johor.

This was revealed as details of the 7th meeting of the joint committee were released in a statement on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his Malaysian counterpart Najib Razak agreed to jointly develop the RTS Link between Singapore and Iskandar Malaysia at their retreat in May this year.

The Joint Ministerial Committee - chaired by Mr Nor Mohamed Yakcop, Malaysia's Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, and Mr Mah Bow Tan, Singapore's Minister for National Development - agreed to carry out a joint engineering study.

This is to determine the technical parameters for the RTS Link in order to achieve a convenient and cost effective system that is well integrated with transport services on both sides.

The statement also said the joint committee noted that cross-border traffic at the Second Link has gone up with the reduction of toll charges since August 1 this year.

The number of new Malaysia Automated Clearance System (MACS) users has also increased significantly to more than 30,000 for the first 10 months of 2010.

The joint committee also noted that concrete progress has been achieved in several areas of bilateral co-operation.

On the iconic wellness township project in Iskandar Malaysia, the committee reported that Khazanah Nasional Berhad and Temasek Holdings have made several site visits to Iskandar Malaysia.

They are actively discussing and working out a commercially viable proposal for the township and to launch it in May 2011.

Meanwhile, a new framework for cross-border sharing of information on lost and stolen passports has also been put in place to enhance border security.

The Joint Ministerial Committee will meet again in the first quarter of next year to review the progress of the joint Work Groups.

that's what happens when you create this 'cars first' mentality - you come up with ludicrous ideas to avoid dealing with the thorny problem that there is simply not enough room for everyone to drive their cars and bus lanes are going to be a necessity.

If I were a weak politician, surely I would be talking about water taxis and MRT/LRT/VRT first and foremost.

Cheers, m

Uhmm guys its a very outdated concept map, from 1996 I believe. Many sections displayed as future LRT lines on that map were incorporated into new MRT lines, (you can see a very clear outline of Circle Line there). Pulau Ubin is likely to be left alone. The development plans there took a huge public backlash some years back and the place is safe as for now.

Pulau Tekong is already undergoing a massive reclamation and a new HDB town will be developed there as soon as the sand settles down. The EWL's Changi spur line is likely to be extended there, as you can see on the URA's Concept Plan 2001.
