RTS Station to be Located at Bukit Chagar - September 2014

Malaysia Government had recently confirmed that RTS (Rapid Transit System) will be ended at Bukit Chagar, Johor Bahru which you could find from the map that  I abstracted from Google Map below. 

A: Bukit Chagar Location
This is the latest news on the RTS / BRT / MRT that connect Johor Bahru to Woodlands North Station (Thompson Line) targeted to be completed on year 2019 / 2020. With the time left less than 5 years, I believe that the projected completion date of 2018 maybe a bit rush to both governments.


Another thing in my mind is that, how do the people live in Danga Bay / Puteri Harbor to reach the new RTS station in order to enter Singapore? It would be nice if there is a new bus terminal next to this station so that it could encourage people to take public transport to the city instead of drive in. In doing so, I believe that the congestion due to the huge traffic will be reduced once the new RTS station is completed and in operation.

For those who have bought the property in Puteri Harbour and hope to just walk to the new RTS may feel a little bit disappointed as the distance will be even further from there. Properties in Taman Serene / Stulang Darat may benefit from this announcement. Hopefully with this RTS, the traveling time to Singapore CBD from Johor Bahru could be shorten to 1.0 - 1.5 hours.
