The Malaysia-Singapore Second Link is a bridge linking the two countries. It connects Tanjung Kupang in Johor with Tuas in Singapore, and is often referred to simply as The Second Link in Malaysia, or the Tuas Second Link in Singapore. It is the second crossing between the two countries after the Johor-Singapore Causeway.
The Second Link was completed on 2 January, 1998. It helps to reduce congeston on the already overburdened Causeway. The link comprises a 1.92 km bridge over the straits. It has three lanes on each side. The bridge spans from Kampung Ladang at Tanjung Kupang in Johor, Malaysia, to Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim at Tuas, Singapore.
On the Singapore side of the Second Link is the Tuas Checkpoint. It was built on a 19.6 hectare piece of reclaimed land. Onwards from there is the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) which runs eastward towards the city centre, eventually connecting with the East Coast Parkway (ECP).
The toll for passenger cars using the Second Link is RM10.80 at Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza and S$4.60 at the Tuas Checkpoint.
