SINGAPORE: Singapore anticipates heavy traffic situation at both Woodlands and Tuas land checkpoints in the lead-up to and during Eid weekend.
“Traffic is expected to be heavy between today and Monday (April 24),” said Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) in its website today.
“Those who wish to depart to Malaysia or enter Singapore via the land checkpoints by car or bus, are advised to factor in additional waiting time for immigration clearance.”
According to ICA, traffic flow through Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints has returned to pre-Covid-19 levels during peak hours.
During the long Eid weekend in 2018, more than 1.5 million travellers crossed the land checkpoints, averaging about 380,000 crossings per day, it said.
ICA noted that the waiting time for travellers departing by car to clear Singapore’s land checkpoints was up to three hours.
Muslims in Singapore and Malaysia will celebrate Eid on Saturday.
