Johor government mulls flexible lane concept to ease traffic flow at Causeway
[JOHOR BAHRU] The Johor government plans to submit a proposal to the Federal Government to introduce the flexible lane concept to address traffic congestion at the Sultan Iskandar Quarantine, Immigration and Customs (QIC) complex here.
State Public Works, Rural and Regional Committee chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad said the proposal was one of the three key steps which had been discussed to facilitate motorists using the route.
"This flexible lane concept will enable private vehicles to use the lorry lane on Saturdays and Sundays because no lorries use it during the weekend."
The Public Works Department will also look at how the traffic flow can be improved, apart from having discussions with the Malaysian Highway Authority through the Highway Planning Unit to increase the number of lanes heading to the QIC complex," he told reporters after observing the traffic flow at the QIC complex here with Johor State Tourism, Trade and Consumer Committee chairman Datuk Tee Siew Kiong on Sunday.
