Mersing
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Mersing is the name of a town and a district in the northeast corner of the state of Johor, Malaysia.

Mersing town (estimated population in 2009: 21,670) is a lively tourist town visited by Malaysians and foreign tourists.

Mersing town is particularly significant for a number of reasons: it is one of only two major towns situated in the eastern half of Johor state (the other being Kota Tinggi), it lies on the main trunk road that connects southern as well as eastern Johor with the east coast of Pahang state including Pahang's capital Kuantan (part of Federal Route 3), and it is the main departure point for ferries to the nearby offshore islands such as Pulau Tioman.

Mersing is 136 Kilometres north east of the state capital Johor Bahru.

Mersing town is also the main port for ferries to Pulau Tioman and the more than 40 other islands in the Seribuat Archipelago. It is easily accessible from the Republic of Singapore, the Johor state capital of Johor Bahru, the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur and the major northern Malaysian town of Kuantan by car, bus, taxi or coaches.

The Federal Government has allocated some RM215mil under the East Coast
Economic Region mas terplan for three infrastructure projects in Mersing this year

Radian to develop seafront Laguna Marina

MERSING: Radian Starfish Sdn Bhd will develop Laguna Marina, a RM3bil integrated development on the seafront of Mersing.

The development, which has received the Department of Environment approval, involves land reclamation of 809.37ha scheduled to start this year.

“The project is expected to take 10 years to complete,’’ Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said.

He said this after the inaugural meeting of Johor’s Implementation and Coordination Committee (ICC) under the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) development master plan.

Ghani is also chairman of the ICC, which oversees the implementation of projects in Mersing which is part of the ECER, which also covers Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan.

He said the waterfront development would consist of star-rated and boutique hotels, waterfront homes, a water theme park, convention centre, cultural centre, private medical centres as well as commercial and business areas.

He said Radian would build a jetty complex for a new ferry service that would operate 24 hours and able to handle large capacity vessels, as well as a fishing jetty.

Ghani declined to divulge any information about Radian, which he said was a local property developer.

“Soon-to-be-launched tourism-related projects as well as the planned infrastructure development will transform Mersing into an even more popular tourist destination,’’ he said.

Mersing is the gateway to islands such as Pulau Tengah, Pulau Sibu, Pulau Rawa and Pulau Tioman. It is also the main eco-tourism gateway for the Endau-Rompin National Park.

Ghani said the Federal Government had allocated some RM215mil under ECER for three infrastructure projects in Mersing this year.

These include RM200mil for the construction of a 68km coastal road linking Mersing to Kg Sedili, RM12mil for the upgrading of a 56km track between Kg Kahang and Endau-Rompin National Park, and conversion of the roundabout in Mersing town into a traffic light intersection.

Mersing a Food Hub..

THE State Government will open 3,000 hectares of agricultural land in Mersing in order to boost the food output in Johor.

BATU PAHAT: The objective is to make the area an important hub for food production, after Kluang and Kota Tinggi. The farmland will be used to plant cash crops and for livestock farming.
State Agriculture and Agro-based Industry committee chairman, Datuk Aziz Kaprawi said the project is scheduled to commence next year and is expected to boost the state's efficiency in food production.
"About 30 per cent of the farmland will be allocated to Johor Corporation while the remaining will be given to small farming operators to develop the land under contract farming.
"Each of the small farming operators who participate in the project will be allocated with 12ha to 20ha of land to plant cash crops such as maize, pineapples or rear poultry.

from tourism hub to food hub :lol:
Haha this one is more realistic I think. That Mersing Laguna was too ambitious to begin with. Can't believe the sultan fell into that one proposal.. Luckily he smell something rotten and call it a quit. I think if they are serious to develop a beachy tourism hub, Desaru is way much better option. It even have a tolled highway under its name, the Senai-Desaru Highway.

Seeing how Kluang folks gain benefit from the food/veterinary industry, this food hub project is a much better and safer option for Mersing people. Sape tak suka weh dapat tanah free 12-20 ekar ni :lol::lol:
