Will the revised toll charges at the causeway affect the retail businesses and property market? Will the investment in Iskandar Malaysia be diminish? Let’s hear your thoughts…
News Releases : 12 Sep 2014
- Singapore has a long-standing policy of matching our toll charges at the Causeway and Second Link to those set by Malaysia. In view of Malaysia’s recent revision in toll charges at the Causeway, from 1 October 2014, Singapore’s toll charges for all vehicles (except motorcycles) leaving Singapore through the Causeway will be increased to match the new Malaysian toll. A new matching Causeway toll will also be implemented for all vehicles (except motorcycles) entering Singapore. There are no changes to the toll charges at the Second Link.
- Singapore’s revised toll charges at the Causeway Woodlands Checkpoint are as follows:
- For foreign-registered cars, Singapore’s Causeway entry toll (i.e. entering Singapore from Johor) will be recorded in the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) toll system and displayed to motorists upon entry into Singapore. Payment will be deducted only upon leaving Singapore (whether through the Causeway or Second Link), together with the exit toll, Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) fee and Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges (if any). This will be the same as the existing practice for the Second Link entry toll.
- For all other vehicles that do not pay VEP fees, i.e. all Singapore-registered vehicles and foreign-registered goods vehicles, buses and taxis, they will pay their Causeway entry toll upon entry into Singapore and their exit toll upon leaving Singapore. This will again be the same as the existing practice for the Second Link tolls.
- Singapore will follow suit should Malaysia reduce or do away with the toll charges.
- Information on toll charges is available at www.lta.gov.sg > ‘Roads & Motoring’ > ‘Driving In and Out of Singapore’.
