Johor Bahru, Dec’11:
EDL plans to collect RM9.10 toll charge for the 8.1km from JB CIQ to North-South Expressway. That is higher than second link toll fee, RM7.50; and the Butterworth dispersal link, that is only RM2.30.
This would be too much, government should think initiative to make it convenient and not to burden rakyat

Iskandar Malaysia, Dec; Sunway Bhd has expanded its landbank in Johor with the acquisition of two parcels of leased land worth RM745.3mil in Medini Iskandar via a joint venture vehicle with Khazanah Nasional Bhd.
The two parcels, which are adjacent to each other, total about 691 acres and has an estimated gross development value (GDV) of RM12bil.
The newly acquired land known as Zone F Medini will boost Sunway’s landbank by 30% from the previous 2,145 acres, while the proposed development will boost the company’s current GDV to RM32bil,” Sunway said in a statement yesterday.
“With the acquisition, Sunway will have 755 acres of development land in Johor, in addition to the existing land at Bukit Lenang, with an estimated total GDV of RM13bil.”
Zone F Medini is strategically located in the heart of Iskandar Malaysia. It is about 10 minutes from Singapore via the Second Link Expressway and 25 minutes from the Senai International Airport.
Also in the vicinity are Legoland Malaysia and Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studios, which are expected to be completed by 2012 and 2013 respectively, Edu City, Kota Iskandar and the International Financial District, the company said.
This is Sunway’s largest acquisition after the merger of the businesses of two public-listed companies, Sunway Holdings and Sunway City in August which resulted in the merged entity becoming one of the top five property-construction companies listed on Bursa Malaysia.
