Causeway Traffic to Surge for Festive Season

How do you think travellers and authorities alike can better cope with the holiday season jams at the checkpoints? 

Commuters planning a trip to Malaysia over the festive period are being urged to adjust travel plans if possible to avoid an expected surge.

The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said yesterday (22 Dec) that traffic volume at the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints is expected to build up from today for the Christmas and New Year periods.

It also reminded travellers to carry the correct documents for immigration clearance to avoid further delays. Between January and October this year, 622 Singaporeans were found at the two checkpoints using wrong or invalid passports, as well as passports reported as lost or stolen. 

ICA said that incorrect or missing passports, inconsiderate motorists, and tighter security measures in the face of terrorist threats were some of the reasons for recent jams.
