Default JB flats to be torn down for future MRT station

JOHOR BARU - FLATS in Johor will be torn down in two weeks' time to make way for a train station linked to Singapore's MRT line, Johor Menteri Besar Abdul Ghani Othman said yesterday.

The proposed MRT station would complement a planned light rail system being planned for the Johor capital city, he said.

'We are in the early stages of negotiation with the Singapore authorities but if we can get the project off the ground in three or four years, I would be happy,' he told reporters.



Singapore's Ministry of Transport revealed last month that the Republic and Malaysia have formed a working group to look at ways of improving transport links between the two countries.

One option being considered is to run Singapore's MRT network into Johor.

But observers had said several issues had to be addressed before such unfettered travel can happen.

One of the first challenges is whether a smart card can be used to allow citizens of the two countries to clear immigration without having to wait for their passports to be stamped.

Located on a 12ha site in Bukit Chagar, the flats have been home to about 2,000 families and is located near the new Customs, immigration and quarantine complex.

'When the demolition work is completed, it will remain as an open space until we start work on the proposed MRT station,' Datuk Abdul Ghani said.

'Right now we are talking to the Singapore Government to work out a suitable location for the station and other support facilities,' he added.

The Singapore MRT system's nearest stop to Johor Baru is the Kranji station, which is about 3km away.""

I think it's all talk and no action again. Everytime like that.
