Good news for vehicles entering Singapore from the Woodlands checkpoint as toll charges are being removed from 1 February

Singapore's Land Transport Authority (LTA) said that toll charges for all vehicles entering Singapore via the Woodlands Checkpoint will be removed from 1 February.

LTA said the decision is in reciprocation of the Malaysian government's abolishment of the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) toll plaza operations, which took effect on 1 January. The EDL connects the end of North-South Expressway to the Malaysian customs at the Sultan Iskandar Building Complex.

"This is in line with Singapore's long-standing policy of matching Malaysia's toll rates," LTA added in a statement it issued on Friday, 5 January.

Additionally, toll charges for vehicles leaving Singapore from the Woodlands Checkpoint are being reduced by up to SGD5.70

LTA provided the list of revised toll charges on its official Facebook page, yesterday:

Motorcyclists will continue to enjoy toll-free travel while entering or leaving Singapore.

LTA also reminded motorists to ensure there is sufficient value in their Autopass cards before driving through the checkpoints

"It is the responsibility of motorists to pay all required tolls, fees and charges using the payment machines located at the immigration booths," the authority said.

"Motorists who evade payment of the tolls, fees and charges are liable to pay a composition sum of SGD50, while repeat offenders will have to pay SGD100.

"Motorists who do not pay the composition sum may be charged in court and are liable to a fine not exceeding SGD1,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months for the first offence,"
it added.
