The Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) has published an animated virtual tour on Monday (Apr 18), showcasing the Johor Bahru – Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link.

Johor’s Chief Minister Onn Hafiz Ghazi also visited the Woodlands North terminus site of the RTS Link during his three-day official visit to Singapore that started on Sunday.

He was hosted by Minister for Transport S Iswaran, where they visited the work area for the construction of the RTS Link viaduct and were updated on the progress of works.

The 4-minute animated virtual tour showcases various sections within the Woodlands North station of the RTS Link project, such as the retail frontage on the ground floor, the seamless Customs, Immigration, Quarantine (CIQ) facilities and the arrival/departure platforms.

Approximately ten times larger than a typical MRT station, the Woodlands North RTS station is constructed underground at a maximum depth of 28 metres. The station and CIQ building comprises three storeys, with two basement levels and an underground linkway.

Indicated to only be “for illustration purposes”, here are some screengrabs from the animated virtual tour uploaded onto LTA’s YouTube channel.

RTS Link To Be Completed by End-2026

The Johor Bahru – Singapore RTS Link is a 4-kilometre rail shuttle service that has an estimated capacity to transport up to 10,000 passengers an hour in each direction.

Operated by RTS Operations Pte Ltd — a joint venture by Singapore’s SMRT Corporation Ltd and Malaysia’s Prasarana Malaysia Bhd — commuters can look forward to seamless connectivity between Woodlands North, Singapore and Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

The 32-station Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) that links to the city centre will also be accessible via an underground concourse between the MRT station and RTS station.
