From LTMP2013:

singapore-Johor Bahru rapid transit system Link

"At the Singapore-Malaysia Leaders’ Retreat in May 2010, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Malaysian Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak agreed to jointly develop a Rapid Transit System
(RTS) Link to enhance connectivity between Iskandar Malaysia and Singapore.The terminating stations of the RTS Link will be in the vicinity of JB Sentral in Johor Bahru and Republic Polytechnic in Singapore. The RTS Link will be integrated with the Thomson Line at its northernmost terminal station. It will have a co-located Customs, Immigration & Quarantine (CIQ) facility in Singapore with a similar facility in Johor Bahru so that commuters need only clear immigration at a single location each way. Phase One of the joint engineering study to determine the technical parameters for the RTS link is complete and both countries are now evaluating the options. "

The JB-SG RTS systems will use the same systems for TEL.

"The RTS Link will connect Bukit Chagar in Johor Baru and Woodlands North in Singapore, where passengers can transfer to the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL). The link will use four core TEL systems — trains, signalling system, communication system and Integrated Supervisory Control System — for economies of scale. The 43km TEL is scheduled to open in stages from 2019."
I wonder how would they link all the system together, from what is most likely a recreation of the Sengkang/Punggol station type; underground linking up to the elevated section likely some 300-ish M height differences...

I think the station layout might be like this for Woodlands North 's;

Level 3 (RTS WLD Transit Flr, Spanish Solution) | Platform ( 1 } [ : : ] { 2 ) ( 3 } [ : : ] { 4 ) 
Level 2 (Customs Flr) | SG / MY Customs Clearance / Offices
Level 1 (Ground Flr) | Concourse (RTS) , Consourse (TEL) , Misc Shops , police (?)
Level B1 (TEL WLN transit Flr) | Platform  [ : : ] { 1 ) ( 2 } [ : : ]

In the new Era of transport, nothing has changed, at least visibly. Disruption still a regular, and perhaps the bus is slow and safe...
JB-SG RTS link will open by 2024.
One burning question: How will JB RTS link to Mandai Depot? It seems like TEL and Mandai Depot isn't built with any provisions to link up with the JB RTS link...

The media already said that JB-SG RTS will using same system on TEL, like rolling stock and signalling system. So possible have a link up with TEL.
Saw a Malaysia condominium advertisement on Facebook. (Not going to reveal the Malaysia condominium name, otherwise it's 業配, which may be against the rules.) I believe they may have insider information. Because, they are marketing on the Woodlands-Johor RTS Link.

The point is, the Facebook Post that markets the RTS Link, shows the Malaysia Klang Valley MRT train, instead of our Singapore MRT train. 

I believe this is what the Malaysia Transport Minister is talking about, about the details that the Singapore government and the Malaysia government are working on with regards to the RTS Link.

After all, I read from a YouTube video about the Hong Kong High Speed Rail, which says that the train service from Mainland China to Hong Kong is a symbol of the Mainland China reach into Hong Kong. 

The reason, or the main reason, for the RTS Link delay, could be because the Malaysia government sees the RTS Link as a matter of sovereignty. After all, the original plan was to have our Singapore MRT run into Malaysia territory.

Anyway, the RTS Link will be underground when at Singapore. So, even if it is the Malaysia MRT train being used in the RTS Link, it is possible. 

The only concern, or condition rather, is that the Malaysia MRT train that is used on the RTS Link, must use the same signalling system as the Singapore Thomson East Coast Line (TEL) MRT, otherwise, the RTS Link trains cannot use the TEL MRT infrastructure to connect to the Mandai Depot, as well as use the Mandai Depot, which is designed primarily for the TEL.

But this condition, is minor. Thus, it is possible. 

The deadline that the two governments set is 30 September 2019.

Today is 21 September 2019. 30 September is only 9 days from today.

So, definitely, next week there will be news about the RTS Link, and probably, using the Malaysia MRT train instead of the Singapore MRT train, is a change we can expect of the RTS Link. 

Thereafter, the RTS Link will finally begin construction. 

In 2020, instead of 2019.

And the RTS Link will open in 2025, instead of 2024.
