The Iskandar Coastal Highway, (ICH) (formerly Johor Bahru West Coast Parkway) (Malay: Lebuhraya Pesisir Pantai Iskandar, (LPPI)) or the stretch of roads that includes Persiaran Sultan Iskandar, Persiaran Sultan Abu Bakar (formerly Jalan Skudai, Jalan Abu Bakar) and Persiaran Sultan Ismail (formerly Jalan Ibrahim and Persiaran Tun Sri Lanang) (Federal Route 52 (Nusajaya - Danga Bay) and Johor State Route J1 (Danga Bay - City Centre)) is a major highway in Iskandar Malaysia, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. The 23 km (14 mi) highway connects Nusajaya in the west to Johor Bahru in the east. It is a toll free highway and part of the Iskandar Malaysia project. The Iskandar Coastal Highway is the fifth east-west-oriented expressway in the Iskandar Malaysia area after the Pasir Gudang Highway, the Pontian-Johor Bahru Link of the Second Link Expressway, the Senai-Desaru Expressway and the Johor Bahru East Coast Highway.

Route background

Federal Route 52

The Kilometre Zero of the Federal Route 52 starts at Bulatan Ledang roundabout in Nusajaya.

Johor State Route J1

The Kilometre Zero of the original parkway starts at Johor Bahru city centre and the milestone is located near the Johor Bahru City Hall (Majlis Bandaraya Johor Bahru (MBJB)) main headquarters.

History

Formerly known as the Johor Bahru West Coast Parkway. The 8 km (5 mi) parkway used to be a part of Federal Route 1 before Skudai Highway was built. However, the importance of Johor Bahru as a trade centre for Singaporeans after the separation of Singapore from Malaysia in 1965 became the major factor of the construction of Skudai Highway. Skudai Highway bypasses the portion which becomes the present-day Johor Bahru West Coast Parkway. As a result, the 2-lane Jalan Skudai was recommissioned as Johor State Route J1. The 2-lane Jalan Skudai became the main coastal road in Johor Bahru as the main alternative to Skudai Highway.

In 1996, the construction of Persiaran Tun Sri Lanang as a separate carriageway for JB West Coast Parkway was completed, as a part of the Johor Bahru Waterfront project. However, the project was abandoned due to very high cost, leaving Persiaran Tun Sri Lanang and Lot 1 as the only 2 structures completed for the project.

In 2002, the government of Johor proposed the Danga Bay project, not only to revive the former Lagun Puteri and Pantai Lido, but also to boost the economy of west Johor Bahru. The Danga Bay project included a 4-km upgrade of the 2-lane Jalan Skudai as a dual carriageway. The road upgrade was completed by the end of 2003.

New Coastal Highway (Nusajaya - Danga Bay)

Following the establishment of the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) (now Iskandar Malaysia) on 30 July 2006, the New Coastal Highway linking Nusajaya from Danga Bay was announced. These include the six new interchanges along the highway such as Skudai-TAR interchange, Taman Perling diamond interchange, Bukit Indah diamond interchange, Nusajaya North cloverleaf interchange, Legoland Malaysia interchange and the Nusajaya roundabout interchange. Construction began on 2008 and was completed on 2011. The Johor Bahru West Coast Parkway and the New Coastal Highway has now combined to become Iskandar Coastal Highway.

In 2013, the stretch between Nusajaya and Danga Bay was gazetted as a Federal Route 52.
