For this Light Rail Transport System project, which will be connected to the High-Speed Rail System (RTS Link) project, crossing the border from Singapore to Johor Bahru in the Federation of Malaysia under the concept of “Transit-Oriented Development”, BTS Group Holdings Public Company Limited entered into a Heads of Agreement with Sinar Bina Infra Sdn. Bhd., Ancom Berhad, Nylex (Malaysia) Berhad, and LBS Bina Group Berhad in March 2022.
This project is part of the MOVE business plan, in which the Company is proficient since it has been operating continuously for more than 20 years through the BTS SkyTrain project, currently expanding to cover a total distance of 135 km., as well as developing new routes, such as the Pink Line Project Khae Rai – Min Buri and the Yellow Line Project Lat Phrao – Samrong.
