Skudai (also spelled Sekudai) is a town in Johor, Malaysia. It is about 13 km northwest from Johor Bahru's central business district.

Location

Skudai is located just outside the northwestern border of Johor Bahru, along national highway 1. The eponymous Skudai River separates Skudai from Tampoi ward of Johor Bahru.

Adjacent towns include Kulai (north), Iskandar Puteri (southwest), Pekan Nanas (west) and the Johor Bahru suburbs of Kempas (east) and Tampoi (southeast).

Government

Parliament

Skudai falls within the Iskandar Puteri constituency in the Malaysian Parliament, currently represented by Liew Chin Tong from Democratic Action Party (DAP).

In the Johor State Legislative Assembly, Skudai is represented by Marina Ibrahim, also from the DAP. She is the first ethnically Malay assemblyperson from the DAP representing the constituency.

Local

Skudai is located outside Johor Bahru's city limits, thus placing it within the jurisdiction of the Iskandar Puteri City Council (Majlis Bandaraya Iskandar Puteri, MBIP). Skudai however is still well within Johor Bahru's metropolitan area and by extension, part of the Iskandar Malaysia development region.
