Instead of spending huge sums of money as well as jeopardising Singapore's last few nature sanctuaries as a corollary of having a new bridge, I propose that the two governments look into improving the current ferry links between Pengerang and Changi.
|Changi point ferry|
The former is an uncomfortable, non-air-conditioned ride and departs only when the full capacity of the bumboat is filled, while there is hardly any information on the latter when one searches for it online.
This is a pity as there is a lot of untapped tourism potential in south-east Johor.
To improve the transport links between both countries without spending a bomb, we should improve and upgrade the current ferry links.
Additionally, it would be even better if there are vehicular ferries that travel on a fixed schedule between Changi and Pengerang.
