A road, a railway, a pedestrian walkway and a water pipeline are carried through the causeway.

History of the Causeway

The idea of linking Johor and Singapore through the narrow Straits of Johor (also known as the Tebrau Straits) has been discussed since the turn of the 20th century. The project only got under way around 1919. It was completed around 1923 at a cost of $17 million, borne by the Johor government.

Today the Causeway is still the main link between Malaysia and Singapore. The Second Link takes some load from the Causeway. Nevertheless over 60,000 vehicles pass through it every day.
