Heavy Vehicular & Human Traffic At Causeway & Checkpoints Over National Day Weekend
In anticipation of the National Day weekend, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) warned of possible congestion at both Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints. Understandably, traffic would be heavy along the Singapore-Johor Bahru (JB) Causeway too, as many folks in Singapore head over to Malaysia for a quick getaway.
Unsurprisingly, what the ICA said proved to be true once the long weekend started on Friday (5 Aug).
Pictures online show snaking lines of travellers and vehicles making their way across the Causeway in typical long-weekend fashion.
Those planning a quick trip too may want to consider planning their journeys properly.
Some spent over 3 hours queuing to cross Causeway on National Day
As the long weekend kicked off yesterday (5 Aug), many people in Singapore took advantage of the extended break to visit Malaysia.
These include Class 95 DJs, the Muttons, who shared pictures of a packed Sultan Iskandar Building at about 12pm today (6 Aug).
The presenters shared that they eventually cleared the customs after a 3.5-hour wait.
Throughout the day, other social media users shared similar pictures showing the extent of the queue at the JB customs.
This one posted on Saturday (6 Aug) showed that the queue had stretched all the way to the escalator leading to the hall.
