has been unusually heavy at Woodlands and Tuas of late, with delays being reported of not only 4 to 5 hours, and a few reports saying they’ve experienced even 8-hour delays.

It has gotten to the point that the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) has advised travelers to check on One Motoring, site initiated by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), to check on traffic conditions before embarking on their travels.

Johor Baru has experienced severe traffic backlogs as well, since stricter security checks have been implemented on the Singapore side of the Causeway and the Second Link.

According to Superintendent Razak Md Said, the Johor Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Department chief, “We do not know when they started increasing security checks but the traffic congestion became apparent since this morning.

We will be monitoring the traffic condition to ensure the safety of users.”

In Singapore, the Facebook page of Immigrations & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA), has issued heavy traffic, road closures and delay advisories more than fifty times in this month alone, often several times each day. And with tighter security measures in place, it is not expected that the situation will improve anytime soon.

Especially with the coming holidays, motorists need to be more prepared than ever that their journeys will take longer than expected. Or, for those who can afford to be a little bit more flexible with their plans, perhaps they may want to delay traveling to Johor Baru in the immediate future.

However, the ICA did say back in November that the traffic was expected to be heavy from November 16 through the end of the year, and so motorists can most likely look forward to better conditions and fewer delays at the beginning of 2019.
