Singapore Keen On Third Bridge - Najib

PUTRAJAYA, June 11 (Bernama) -- Singapore is quite keen on the construction of a third bridge linking the republic to Malaysia, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Thursday.

"The concept of the third bridge on the eastern side of Johor is something which we will pursue, and Singapore is quite keen on having the third bridge.

"When we have a third bridge, we can develop the whole of the eastern side (of Johor) up to Mersing and onwards to Desaru.

"Singapore did say that it (the area) has the potential to be another Nusa Jaya like in Bali (Indonesia)," he said in his opening address at the 2010 Budget consultation meeting at the Finance Ministry, here.


Hhmmmmm.....looks like the bridge will come en route soon.
No doubt about it.

Exactly why can't they develop the eastern side of Johor, Mersing to Desaru without ever to build the bridge?

Do Malaysia need to have something linking to another country to have its town to be developed? Why can't the development takes place earlier?
Is this another Cyberjaya (redundant to date except being filled with training centres of multinationals and local company) or some Corridor?

What would the name be for these future development im wondering?

But one thing for sure, there surely be infested with Singaporeans....
