Tuas and Woodlands Checkpoints, it’s a shame traffic jams persist

Do the Singapore land checkpoint authorities know what they are doing?

Over the past week several letters appeared in the press, bemoaning the frequent traffic jams at both the Tuas and Woodlands checkpoints. One writer was angry that he was caught in a 5-hour traffic jam at the Tuas checkpoint during Chinese New Year.

Many readers have written to the press over the years with suggestions on how to untangle the constant traffic jams.

The most obvious solution was to increase manpower (or humanpower, if you like). This the authorities have done but still the jams persist.

It’s no joke being stuck in a car on a hot day, worse, if you’re troubled with a bladder problem.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the authorities are not really interested in solving the problem. Conspiracy theories abound as to the reason for this “impasse”. One theory is they don’t want Singaporeans to spend their money in Malaysia.

  1. Reminds me of the lone Scotsman in Aberdeen who came out of his car when he was caught in a traffic jam and played his bagpipes. Everyone cheered and the traffic cleared.

    That squeezing bladders helped. But music filled the air, not waste water.

    Come on. The authorities should resolve this problem. Imagine all that pollution and wasted energy in the sun!
