    Johor Bahru-Singapore RTS link

    Johor Bahru-Singapore RTS link 'not progressing well', Malaysia missed deadlines: Khaw SINGAPORE: The Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) link project is behind schedule and "not progressing well", said Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan on Monday (Jan 14) in a written parliamentary reply. He was responding to questions from MP Ang Wei Neng on the progress of the project and its estimated timeline. The RTS project, which links Bukit Chagar station in Johor Baru and Woodlands North station in Singapore, was meant to be completed by 2024. Milestones in the project have been missed, said Mr Khaw, adding that Malaysia has repeatedly delayed confirmation of its joint venture partner. According to the bilateral agreement signed in January 2018, a joint venture company comprising Singapore’s SMRT and Malaysia’s Prasarana Malaysia should have been constituted by Jun 30 last year. The joint venture company should also have been appointed as the RTS Link operator (OpCo) through a Concession Agreement (CA) with Singapore's Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the government of Malaysia by Sep 30, 2018. Both milestones were missed. "Over the past few months, Malaysia has indicated that they are considering replacing their JV (joint venture) partner, but has delayed confirming their JV partner – first until September 2018, then until December 2018 and most recently on Dec 28, 2018, Malaysia requested to be given until Feb 28, 2019 to confirm their JV partner," said Mr Khaw. "As a result of these delays, the joint venture company has not even been incorporated to-date, let alone signed the CA. Meanwhile, Malaysia has also unilaterally suspended bilateral discussions to appoint the OpCo since August 2018, pending its confirmation of the Malaysian JV partner." Mr Khaw explained that under the bilateral agreement, if the joint venture company has not been incorporated or appointed as the RTS link operator, then both countries are obliged to jointly call a fair, international and transparent open tender to appoint an operator - unless both governments mutually agree to postpone these deadlines. "In line with the intent of the bilateral agreement, Singapore prepared and sent draft tender documents to Malaysia in November 2018 for their comments," said Mr Khaw. "There is urgency to this as, based on Singapore’s calculations, the open tender needs to be called by Mar 31, 2019 so that, as agreed under the bilateral agreement, the appointed OpCo can procure the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) core systems for the RTS Link before these procurement options expire." Malaysia has not responded to the draft tender documents, Mr Khaw said. He added that Singapore remains fully committed to implementing the RTS link, noting that LTA has assembled close to 70 employees and engineers for the project, as well as called civil tenders to construct related infrastructure. There had been uncertainty over the RTS link project in the wake of the Malaysian general election last May, as the new government reviewed agreements signed by the previous administration. While Malaysia decided to defer the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail project, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said that the country remains committed to the RTS project. Mr Khaw said on Monday that Singapore has been "reasonable and flexible" towards Malaysia because it understood its circumstances after the May general elections. "However, missing the agreed deadlines in the bilateral agreement to appoint the OpCo and thereafter failing to engage with Singapore to take steps to jointly call an open tender to appoint the OpCo has serious implications. "The bilateral agreement is an international treaty that is binding on the countries that signed it, regardless of any changes in the government," said Mr Khaw. He added that as a result of these delays, the start of RTS link services will likely be delayed beyond the original target of Dec 31, 2024. "We will continue to take a constructive approach to move the project forward," said Mr Khaw.

  5. S’pore Aircraft Makes Emergency Landing On Johor Highway This Morning Due To Technical Issues source: https://mustsharenews.com/emergency-landing-johor-highway/ Singapore Aircraft From Seletar Airport To Melaka Makes Emergency Landing On Johor Highway Motorists travelling along the highway in Johor this morning had the opportunity to witness a bizarre sight. A light aircraft from Singapore made an emergency landing near Sedenak, Johor – around 49km northwest of Johor Bahru – due to technical issues. As a result, dozens of firemen and police personnel were deployed to the scene, as seen in a video uploaded by the Royal Malaysia Police below. They later helped to push the aircraft to the roadside so that the highway will no longer be obstructed. Singaporean pilots requested to make emergency landing in Johor According to a media release by Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), CEO Captain Chester Voo confirmed that a plane from Singapore had made an emergency landing this morning (22 Nov). The private plane – a light aircraft type Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza – was operated by Premier Air Singapore, and was on the way to Melaka from Seletar Airport. CAAM Johor’s Air Traffic Control Tower received a request from the Singaporean pilots at 10.40am to land at Senai International Airport in JB due to technical issues. Pilots in stable condition Despite the emergency landing, Captain Voo said the pilots are in stable condition. The aircraft was also successfully moved out of the way so motorists may continue to use the highway at ease. Here’s another video of the plane after it was moved to the side of the road. Captain Voo added that the Air Accident Investigation Bureau – under Malaysia’s Transport Ministry – will conduct an investigation. Plane’s engine malfunctioned at 5,000 ft altitude Channel NewsAsia (CNA) reported that the 2 Singaporeans pilots are Dr Yang Kuang Ying and Mr Saleehullah Abdul Majid. Johor police said the pilots were flying at around 5,000 ft above ground when they heard a strange noise from the engine at 11.05am. The plane’s engine was reportedly malfunctioning, as the petrol gauge “fell rapidly”. They then made an emergency landing at the 47.8km mark of the highway’s southbound lane. Johor police also confirmed that there were no injuries, and no damage to public property in the incident. Thankful that pilots landed safely Despite having to deal with a malfunctioning engine, we’re glad that the 2 pilots were quick to act and landed safely. Though we can’t help but wonder if they will have to undergo quarantine now due to Covid-19 safety measures. Anyway, kudos to the Malaysian authorities for swiftly moving the plane to the side of the road, so motorists can continue using the highway.

  7. Johor Couple’s House Burgled While They Work In S’pore, Angbaos & Food Found In A Mess source: https://mustsharenews.com/couples-house-burgled/ Johor Couple’s House Burgled As Home Owners Are Working In Singapore A home burglary might not be common in Singapore due to our low crime rate. However, such happenings may be more rampant in other countries. Unfortunately, a Johor couple’s house was burgled when they were working in Singapore. The house was in disarray after the ransacking, with signs that the burglars stayed in the premises for a few days. Furthermore, the couple’s house was not the only one that was broken into. Couple’s house left in mess, with car stolen In a Facebook post by one of the victims’ older brother, he said the iron gates of the house had been knocked open. According to him, the couple had been working in Singapore and were unable to return to Malaysia due to closed borders and strict Covid-19 safety measures. A look inside the house showed a frightening scene of scattered belongings and opened ang baos. The hurricane of mess continued into the bedroom, where the cupboards were emptied and clothes were strewn all over the floor. Furthermore, the couple’s car, a white Proton Satria, was nowhere to be found. This is the last thing someone would hope to see when they return from overseas. Burglars may have stayed for a while According to the victim’s brother, there were signs that the burglars had an extended stay in the couple’s house. Leftover food and urine were found in the property and there was evidence of drug usage. Neighbours only became suspicious when they heard strange sounds at home and called the police. Couple were not the only victims in area Unfortunately, a neighbour also had his house looted after he left home to visit his wife who had given birth. Jewellery and cash were stolen from the house, shared the older brother. However, it is uncertain whether the same burglars were involved in the looting. Take precautions for extended overseas stays This incident, though horrifying, is a reminder for us to take the necessary precautions when we are expecting to be away from home for an extended period of time. A CCTV and burglar alarm may act as deterrence for criminals. Even in Singapore, we are not exempted from the risk of burglary, even with our low crime rate. After all, an empty house is always a tempting opportunity for looters.
  8. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/singapore-johor-jb-causeway-malaysia-build-pedestrian-walkway-13108442 ISKANDAR PUTERI: Johor is looking to build an air-conditioned walkway that will stretch about 350m along its side of the Malaysia-Singapore Causeway. The Johor state government has requested RM30 million (S$9.88 million) in funding from the Malaysian federal government for the walkway, said Johor public works, infrastructure and transport committee chairman Mohd Solihan Badri on Sunday (Sep 13). The allocation request earlier this year was doubled from an initial RM15 million after a redesign to include escalators and air-conditioning, he added on the sidelines of the Johor state assembly proceedings at the Sultan Ismail Building. Under the proposal, the walkway will stretch 350m and end at the border with Singapore, said Mohd Solihan. "For Singapore, I’m not sure how long the distance is going to be," he added. It is estimated that hundreds of pedestrians crossed the Causeway daily on foot before Malaysia enforced the Movement Control Order in March to curb the spread of COVID-19. Although no action has been taken by the authorities so far, pedestrians are actually prohibited on the Causeway, according to Mohd Solihan. Mohd Solihan also said that Singapore has shown interest in extending the proposed covered walkway on its side of the Causeway. He said that several officials from the Singapore Consulate-General in Johor Bahru expressed interest in the project at a recent meeting. “They asked for the design of the walkway so that they can submit a proposal to their government to extend the walkway,” added Mohd Solihan.

This App Lets You Hitch A Ride To JB Or S’pore For A Faster Commute Source: https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/singapore/crossing-the-causeway-this-app-lets-you-hitch-a-ride-to-jb-or-spore-for-a-faster-commute/ar-BBYnx0p?li=BBr8YXK Crossing The Causeway? This App Lets You Hitch A Ride To JB Or S'pore For A Faster Commute. Johor Bahru might be a favourite among Singaporeans for a quick getaway, but travelling across the border means needing to endure excruciating hours-long jams. While there isn’t any solution to ending jams altogether, fewer vehicles on the road still can result in a shorter wait. This is where Sameride App wants to come in. Sameride App, first established in 2016 in Washington, DC, is an on-demand carpool app that wants to “enhance ride communication among drivers and riders commuting on the same route”. Almost 300 Johor-Singapore commuters have pre-registered in the Sameride app over the last two weeks, and the app is fully operational for Johor-Singapore commuters starting 30 Dec 2019. Sameride estimates that users who commute between Johor and Singapore will be able to significantly reduce the cost of their commute up to 2 times compared to taxi services. The Sameride App is available for Android and iOS, and users have the flexibility to be riders or drivers, set their pick-up time and locations, create ride offers or requests a few hours or a few days before their commute. Find out more about Sameride here.

  12. A recent Roads.sg video of two men using super unorthodox techniques to fill up a gas tank has caught the attention of many Singaporeans. At the time of writing this article, the post has since garnered over 100 comments (I’ll share some at the end of this article) which are pretty one-sided. Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it. If you have, watch it again. It' bloody hilarious! Video from Roads.sg YouTube Channel Confirm Singaporean According to the Roads.sg video description, this incident occurred across the causeway. Screenshot from Roads.sg YouTube Channel The owner of what we believe to be a 2016 Toyota Vios, is definitely a Singaporean. I can say this with assurance because I've pumped petrol in J.B. before and you only ever see Singaporeans do stupid shit like this while Malaysians laugh at us. The back of the car looks similar! Do you save money in the end? If you're not too familiar with what is going on, the logic is simple. Bubbles are formed when you pump petrol in your car and these bubbles take up precious space in your fuel tank that could go to more fuel. Therefore, if you shake your car, the bubbles will dissipate, allowing you to get more petrol and more savings. Alright, you might save a couple of bucks, but the repercussions don't make sense to me. Not worth it You will eventually wreck your rear suspension which is not cheap to repair. You look like an idiot You give Singaporeans a bad name You will kena caught on video like this guy and, everyone will know you for the wrong reasons What the people say The answer is nothing. You saved nothing. Pretty sure he is. Facebook comments taken from Roads.sg Facebook Page That’s funny af.

  14. If you've been one of the "kan cheong" people waiting to get your Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) approved before driving into Malaysia, here's some good news for you - The implementation of the VEP scheme will only commence next year. According to The Straits Times, Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke claimed that the delay is due to the system's inability to cope with the exponential number of vehicles that needed to install the RFID tag. It seems that many Singaporeans are not surprised by this delay. It’s not the first time that there has been a delay with the implementation of the VEP and you can be sure people were quick to call that out. And some people make pretty sound arguments. Wait, does this mean that Singaporean car owners with the RFID tags did the application and probably wasted a weekend queueing up in Malaysia for nothing? Sounds about right. Malaysia Boleh? Case closed. ----------------------------------------------- Still wondering how to get your VEP? We went through the entire process so you can have this handy guide here! -----------------------------------------------
  15. Johor police chief Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff speaking about the Johor crime situation to Singaporean and Malaysian media in Johor Bahru on Thursday. The police chief of Johor has declared his state to be "safe beyond doubt". Referring to negative perceptions of the crime situation in Johor and recent crime statistics, Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said that the state's police are in "full control". Datuk Mohd Mokhtar noted that the number of violent and property crime cases in Johor fell about 36 per cent between 2008 and last year. Overall, there were 17,105 crime cases in the state last year, or about 10 per cent less than in 2012. The police chief also assured Singaporeans that they are not specifically targeted by criminals: "Crimes are committed when an opportunity arises regardless of (a victim's) race, religion, sex and nationality."

    Malaysia has halted the enforcement of its Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) at the two Johor checkpoints, the Ministry of Transport said on 1 October, following several teething problems last week. The ministry did not say if, or when, the VEP enforcement would be started. Malaysia's VEP enforcement was scheduled to begin on 1 October, with the scheme conducted only during non-peak hours.

  18. SINGAPORE: The supply of water to Singapore was disrupted after the PUB's Johor River Waterworks halted water treatment operations due to the high levels of ammonia in the river, Singapore's national water agency said on Thursday (Apr 4). A spokesman said: “PUB’s waterworks in Johor, the Johor River Waterworks (JRWW), has stopped treatment operations this afternoon due to high ammonia levels found in the Johor River. “The stoppage of treatment operations at JRWW disrupted its water supply to Singapore and some parts of Johor. Water supply in Singapore is not affected as PUB has stepped up production at the desalination plants and local waterworks to meet demand. “PUB is monitoring the raw water quality in Johor River closely and will resume abstraction and treatment of raw water when water quality is suitable.” Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/ammonia-pollution-johor-river-singapore-water-supply-disrupted-11413570 Everything there's something new about sg and msia.

According to a statement by national oil firm Petronas, the incident took place at 1.25am. An emergency and fire response team was deployed and contained the fire within 30 minutes. "The situation is under control and all relevant authorities have been informed," it said. "We will provide additional information in due course, as the investigation is still being carried out." Comments on social media have suggested that the blast could be felt by residents of nearby residential areas and as far off as Pasir Gudang. Spates of incidents happening to our brothers and sisters across the causeway lately.lets all wish them well and nothing major to happen anymore. anything that happens to our closest neighbour could very well affect us very directly.

  25. Car thieves in Malaysia have gone high-tech, using device to unlock car with keyless entry Owners of cars using the keyless entry system are at risk of having their vehicles stolen in minutes by a frequency­hacking device that is available in Malaysia. The device, which costs about RM150 (S$50) and can be obtained online or at some electronics stores, can unlock a car and start its engine by hacking its radio frequency identification (RFID) information. A source said the device could unlock almost any car with keyless entry. Source: http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/car-thieves-in-malaysia-have-gone-high-tech-uses-device-to-unlock-car-with-keyless I still use the old school method to lock the steering but if they wanna steal they'll easily remove it anyway. Still, I think deterrence is better than nothing!
