Toll Charges Reduced At Woodlands Checkpoint From Feb 1 To Match Malaysia

Vehicles making return trips between Singapore and Malaysia using Woodlands checkpoint will soon be able to save as much as S$11, under revised toll charges announced by the Land Transport Authority (LTA).

 

Toll charges for vehicles entering the Republic through Woodlands checkpoint will be removed, while all vehicles except motorcycles leaving Singapore via Woodlands will see reduced charges, the authority said in a press statement on Friday (Jan 5).

 

LTA said the announcement is to match Malaysia's recent removal of toll charges at the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL), which 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," it added.

 

Heavy good vehicles will stand to save the most, with a new roundtrip toll charge of S$2, instead of the current S$13.

 

The previous roundtrip fee of S$9.80 for vans and light goods vehicles will be reduced to S$1.50, translating to S$8.30 in savings.

 

Cars making return trips will save S$5.50, with a revised toll fee at S$1 compared to the current fees of S6.50.

 

 

Putrajaya removed toll charges along the EDL on Jan 1, following an announcement by Prime Minister Najib Razak in October last year.

 

In a reminder to motorists, LTA said on Friday that they should 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," it said.

 

Motorists who evade payment of the tolls, fees and charges are liable to pay a composition sum of S$50, while repeat offenders will have to pay S$100.

 

Motorists who do not pay the composition sum may be charged in court and are liable to a fine not exceeding S$1,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months for the first offence.
