The Johor-Singapore Causeway is a 1km causeway that links the city of Johor Baru across the Straits of Johor to Woodlands in Singapore... It serves as a road, rail, and pedestrian link, as well as water piping into Singapore... It is the first land link between the 2 countries until the 1998 opening of the Second Link between Tuas (in Singapore) and Tanjung Kupang (in Malaysia)...

The Johor-Singapore Causeway was completed in 1923 after four years of construction... There is a channel for water to flow between the two sides of the Causeway... It was partially destroyed in 1942 during World War 2, to prevent the Japanese army from invading Singapore... However, it was rebuilt once the Japanese had captured the island...

With the increasing number of Malaysian going to work in Singapore from Johor Baru, the Causeway is in perpetual jam during the peak hours... This can be stretched to more than 3 hours on long weekends...
