Second Link Expressway Template:MES-E Template:AHN-AH (Abbreviation: LINKEDUA, Template:Lang-ms), is the 44 km (27.3 miles) expressway which links Senai North EXIT 253 at North-South Expressway, Senai Airport and Taman Perling, Johor Bahru via its extension known as Pontian-Johor Bahru Parkway (Pontian Link) to the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link.

Usually, travelling along the second link is much faster than travelling on the Johor-Singapore Causeway, as the traffic is smoother in both directions. However, during festive periods (especially Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Christmas and Deepavali), massive traffic jams still arise as the huge amount of traffic going between Malaysia and Singapore during these periods leads to massive jams on both the causeway and the second link.

Route backgroundEdit

The Kilometre Zero for the entire expressway is located at the Malaysia-Singapore Border at the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link.

Northern and Southern Links (Main Link)Edit

The Kilometre Zero of this section starts at the Malaysia-Singapore Border at the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link, while its northern terminus for the main link is at Senai North Interchange in Senai.

Pontian-Johor Bahru Parkway (Pontian Link)Edit

The Kilometre Zero of this section starts at EXIT 307 Pulai Interchange which connects with the main link while its eastern terminus is at Taman Perling in Johor Bahru.

How to get there?Edit

To enter the expressway, exit the North-South Expressway (Template:MES-E Template:AHN-AH ) at EXIT 253 Senai North and proceed along the expressway to Singapore. Alternatively, motorists can also enter the expressway via Taman Perling which also joins with Pasir Gudang Highway (Federal Route 'Bold text' ) and Skudai Highway (Federal Route 'Bold text' Template:AHN-AH ). The expressway link to Taman Perling is also known as Pontian-Johor Bahru Parkway or Pontian Link.

HistoryEdit

Construction of the Second LinkEdit

In July 1989, United Engineers Malaysia Berhad (UEM) submitted a proposal to the government of Malaysia to privatize the construction of a second link to Singapore. The acceptance of the proposal brought about the signing of a concession agreement in July 1993, giving exclusive rights and authority to UEM to design, construct, manage, operate and maintain the bridge and expressways for a period of 30 years commencing 27 July 1993.

Following this, a novation agreement was executed in May 1994, whereby UEM assigned all its rights, liabilities and obligations in respect of the concession agreement to Linkedua (Malaysia) Berhad, a wholly owned subsidiary of UEM.

The major components of the project are the Second Crossing bridge, 44 kilometers of expressways, a Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex, 3 toll plazas, 2 rest and service areas and other ancillary facilities. The bridge was designed to accommodate up to 200,000 vehicles a day.

Opening ceremonyEdit

The Second Link was first opened to traffic on 2 January 1998. It was officially opened on 18 April the same year by the Prime Ministers of both countries, namely Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia and Goh Chok Tong of Singapore. The Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing heralded a new era in bilateral relations, and brought with it the promise of improved economic and social ties.

On 1 September 2003, The company Linkedua Malaysia Berhad (Linkedua) was now a member of PLUS Expressway Berhad.

Pontian LinkEdit

A new link heading towards Pontian (Pontian Link) through the Pulai Interchange EXIT  307A at km 15.3 on the Second Link Expressway was opened to traffic starting from 1:00 pm, 10 November 2007 on Saturday.

The Pontian Link provides easy access for highway users, connecting the Second Link Expressway (from Pulai Interchange) to Ulu Choh-Gelang Patah Interchange (KM5).

Construction of the 2.7 km link started on 17 April 2006 and was fully completed on 16 October 2007.

Illegal racing at Second LinkEdit

The Second Link is a popular location for car illegal racing.[1] On 12 July 2006, the Johor police and the Road Transport Department with the highway operator PLUS Expressway has launched the big operations to crack down against illegal racing. More than 600 people were arrested in this operation.[2]
