ISKANDAR PUTERI (Sept 6): The RM2.56 billion Iskandar Malaysia Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system in Johor is slated to begin operation by the end of 2023, reported Malay Mail.

The report, citing Johor state executive councillor in charge of works, transportation and infrastructure Mohd Solihan Badri, said the multi-billion ringgit infrastructure development is now close to 22% of completion.

The BRT project started its pilot test programme on April 8 this year. Over 443 people took part in the programme and close to 98% showed support for the service and the green technology used, he said during the state assembly today.

According to him, the Iskandar Regional Development Authority has invested RM151 million to finalise the infrastructure engineering design, assessing the design of operational and financial requirements, investigation work and also land acquisition.

The BRT system covers a total of 2,043km with three main lines, namely Iskandar Puteri, Skudai and Tebrau, with 44 direct routes and 55 feeder routes.
