Wow, looks like one part of the bridge is done. The other half has few more sections to go before it is completed. After that, just need to lay the tarmac for the road and the road lines. Hmm, from the looks of the pic, you took the picture from the City Square Tower, right?

Woodlands railway jetty / slipway, used to transfer rail goods via sea before the Causeway was built


Woodlands station


The former railway jetty at Woodlands, with the Causeway under construction


The lock in the Causeway


Lock


JB dated 1930, the lock channel beside the coast.


I just discovered that the channel still exist now... Was wondering if the little jetty beside the causeway was part of the old railway jetty. Anyone knows?

Yeah, looks like it is almost done. Anybody know when are they completing this bridge? I'm asking because I am just tired of the present long-winded route to the checkpoint every time I enter Johor.

I know this might be slightly off topic. But can someone explain to me what are the benefits of a crooked bridge to Malaysia?

All that I have read recently is that it will let water flow and that ships can pass. Ships can pass? Aren't the straits too narrow?

Hopefully someone can explain to me in detail. Thanks!

Now that we have all the crooked bridges linking the causeway to the checkpoint there is no need for the actual crooked bridge over the straits of johor

Traffic to S’pore to be diverted

By DESIREE TRESA GASPER
[email protected]

JOHOR BARU: Traffic heading for Singapore will be diverted to the new Medium Term Link (MTL) road in stages from Tuesday to pave the way for demolition works on the elevated access road currently connecting the Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex to the causeway.

The access road — nicknamed the F1 circuit because it winds like a Formula 1 racing track – had been in use over the past four to five years as a stop-gap measure while the MTL was being built.

Following the recent completion of the link, the traffic police decided to do several test runs before allowing all vehicles — except lorries from the nearby Tanjung Putri Customs complex — to permanently use the MTL.

The full use of the MTL is expected to start from Jan 13 when the demolition works on the current access road are also scheduled to be completed.

State internal security, public order and traffic chief Supt T. Raveendran said the diversion from the access road to the MTL would start with outbound traffic from 10am on Tuesday.

“We will have the test run for one hour for all buses, cars and motorcycles heading for Singapore to assess and fix problems relating to the diversion,” he told a press conference at the CIQ complex here yesterday.

Barring any hitches, all outbound traffic will be permanently diverted from the access road to the MTL from 10am on Wednesday.

“As for the traffic entering Johor Baru via the causeway, we will have a similar test run on Nov 26 involving only buses,” he said, adding that the inbound buses would permanently start using the MTL on Nov 29.

Supt Raveendran said from Jan 13, all buses, cars and motorcycles — outbound and inbound — would be permanently diverted to the new link.

He said other than traffic diversions, there would be traffic lights at a junction where the lorry lane — leading from the Tanjung Putri Customs complex — meets the lane for the other vehicles.

“This is to ensure a continuous flow of traffic along the causeway,” he said, adding that all lorries would continue to enter Singapore from the Customs complex.

Supt Raveendran said 25 officers from the CIQ complex, the Public Works Department and other agencies would be stationed along the new link to help control traffic flow.

As for the short-term access road linking the CIQ to the causeway, he said it would be demolished in stages and eventually replaced.

“I would also like to advise all motorists to be cautious during the diversion period,” he said.

For enquiries, the public can contact the Johor police hotline at 07-2212999.
