SINGAPORE: Travelers heading to Johor Bahru via the Woodlands checkpoint on Monday (December 12) had to contend with causeway traffic and long waits.
In a Facebook post at 7:50 am, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said there was heavy departure traffic at the Woodlands checkpoint due to tailbacks from Malaysia.
“Due to expected delays, travelers are advised to check traffic conditions before embarking on a trip,” the ICA said, encouraging drivers to maintain lane discipline and cooperating with on-site police officers. I called you.
Officials said the tailback had subsided in a subsequent update at 7 p.m., about 11 hours after the original post. The Facebook post from Monday morning has since been deleted.
In a snapshot of traffic conditions around 6pm, the checkpoints.sg mobile application showed an estimated waiting time of 70-105 minutes to enter Johor Bahru, with long queues in all lanes .
Data collected by the application showed longer wait times for travel in both directions during peak hours this week at both Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints compared to a week ago.
