    Malaysia will go ahead with plans to build a cross-border MRT line between Johor Baru and Singapore, but wants to look at ways to lower costs, said

    Its certainly a feasible move by both countries.. Where its cost much cheaper..

    Its usual..on its pricing...tjt bought in SG side is much higher than tkt bought over from the Malaysian side...its always been in this way..
    I think at this moment..I s better not for CECB to do any deal with the Malaysian side. Cos he is too CECB..
