Increased congestion was reported at Singapore-Malaysia border crossings on Monday, April 1, as Singapore implemented planned restrictions on the entry of foreign vehicles with outstanding fines. Crowded conditions were reported at the Johor-Singapore Causeway and the Tuas Second Link on Monday for both private vehicle checkpoints and public transportation as more people elected to ride buses. Increased congestion is expected to persist in the coming weeks as drivers comply with the new regulations.
Singapore announced new foreign vehicle restrictions in February 2019. The new measures ban foreign vehicles with outstanding fines, including traffic, parking, or emissions tickets. Approximately 60,000 foreign vehicles enter Singapore daily.
Individuals in or traveling to Singapore are advised to adhere to all instructions and regulations issued local authorities and anticipate increased congestion and delays at border crossings.
