PM Lee and Najib launch Marina One and DUO joint development projects

Najib Razak attends a news conference after a meeting with Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Singapore

When ready by Dec 31, 2024, the Link can carry up to 10,000 passengers per hour in each direction.

It is also much higher than the average 300 passengers per hour in each direction that the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad's (KTMB) Tebrau Shuttle now ferries. The OpCo will own, design, build, finance, operate, maintain and renew the RTS Link's operating assets such as trains and tracks, it said.

The agreement was signed by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Abd Rahman Dahlan, who represented Malaysia, and Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan, on behalf of Singapore.

"This means that before departure, commuters from Malaysia to Singapore need to undergo customs and immigration clearance for both countries at the Bukit Chagar station only, and likewise for the journey home, clearance is made at the Woodlands North station", he said. The InfraCos will fund, build, own, maintain, and renew the civil infrastructure and stations within their respective territories, it added.

The fares have not yet been announced.

Najib will attend a high-tea session with the Malaysian community in Singapore before departing for Kuala Lumpur.

In a joint statement on the 8th Singapore-Malaysia Leaders' Retreat on Tuesday, both leaders welcomed Malaysia's removal of the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) toll effective from Jan 1, and Singapore's matching of the toll reduction with effect from Feb 1.

Heavy maintenance for the RTS will be done at the TEL's Mandai Depot and outsourced to SMRT Trains, the operator of the TEL.

"For economies of scale, the RTS link will utilise the same four core systems - trains, signalling system, communications system and integrated supervisory control system - as Singapore's upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line", the LTA and Spad said. As for light maintenance work, a facility will be set up at Bukit Chagar.
