KTM Shuttle Tebrau (JB Sentral – Woodlands CIQ – JB Sentral)

With the Gemas-Johor Bahru Electrified Double Track Project (EDTP) works between Johor Bahru Sentral Railway Station (JB Sentral) and Kempas Baru Railway Station, trains are unable to pass this section. As such, the Shuttle Tebrau which is stabled in Kempas Baru Depot will not be able to operate during the closure, even if Singapore and Maaysia borders were open.
