A train line linking Malaysia’s southern state of Johor with neighboring Singapore will proceed following the projected price was cut by 36 percent, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on Thursday, ending weeks of uncertainty within the postponed project.

The Rapid Transit System Link, that will bridge among the world’s busiest border crossings, can transport up to 10,000 passengers an hour daily, over 30 times the capability of the present train services.

The job will cost 3.16 billion ringgit ($757 million)down from 4.93 billion ringgit below the initial proposition, Mahathir said, adding that the administration had been in talks with Singapore within the conditions.
