Johor Bahru Eastern Dispersal Link Expressway, (EDL)

Exit 1888 (also known as Johor Bahru Eastern Dispersal Scheme) is an expressway in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. The Template:Convert expressway connects the end of North-South Expressway Southern Route at Pandan to the new Sultan Iskandar Building CIQ Complex in the city centre. It is a toll free expressway and act as bypass to CIQ complex without using Tebrau Highway (Federal Route 'Bold text') to the city centre. This project is part of the Iskandar Malaysia (formerly South Johor Economic Region (SJER) or Iskandar Development Region (IDR)) is expected to cost RM 1 billion.[1]

In August 2012, The Malaysian government decided that it will acquire the Johor-based Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) from Malaysia Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), confirming speculation on the matter and turning analysts bullish on outlook of the construction giant.[2]

Route backgroundEdit

The Kilometre Zero of the expressway starts at CIQ Interchange near Sultan Iskandar Building CIQ Complex.

History Edit

The construction of the Johor Bahru Eastern Dispersal Link was proposed in 2004 in the Ninth Malaysia Plan (2006–2010). The construction began on 1 October 2007 and was completed on 20 March 2012. On 1 April 2012, the highway was opened to public.

Controversies Edit

Houses along Jalan Sri Pelangi Satu and Jalan Sri Pelangi Dua had been reclaimed by the government due to the necessity to use the land for the project. The compensation sum given to the owners of the houses was considered low by many of the residents there. However, no further adjustments was made to the sum.

Another major controversy is that only the motorists who use the CIQ complex to travel to Singapore will be charged the toll; whether or not he or she drives on the EDL. However, on 30 Aug 2012, five months after the EDL was opened to public, the controversy was resolved when the government announced that they will take over the EDL from MRCB.
