Johor Bahru JB Sentral
Johor Bahru Sentral (JB Sentral) will be the new transport hub in Johor Bahru – housing a KTM train railway station and a bus station. It was designed to upgrade the existing railway station at Johor Bahru in response to the increasing demand of rail commuters.
New bus and taxi pick up points are provided along Jalan Jim Quee to enhance this new rail station.
The bus station is expected to handle approximately 15000 bus passengers per hour, to reduce traffic congestion on the 20 year-old Larkin Terminal Station. Two (2) multilevel car parks (comprising 726 car parking bays) are situated over both sides of the JB Sentral to provide parking facilities for the entire project.
As part of the new gateway, the JB Sentral will be located along Jalan Tun Abdul Razak. The new rail station sits over new tracks that will be connected to a swing bridge to cross the Straits of Johor to Singapore. A pedestrian bridge connects JB Sentral to Johor Bahru City Square and Kompleks Tun Abdul Razak (Tun Abdul Razak Complex), also known as the new CIQ – JB immigration.
Transportation chief advisor, Dato Ong Seng Yon has announced that an LRT system will be constructed around year 2015 to include JB Sentral as its main terminal. The project is expected to complete by end of 2019. The system would be known as RAPID JB (RAngkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Johor Bahru).
