Tuas and Woodlands Checkpoints Congestion

For years the two land checkpoints at Tuas and Woodlands have been plagued with traffic congestion, sometimes lasting for hours.

Critics ask why Changi airport which sees more “human” traffic does not suffer the same fate. Admittedly, there are differences between the two checkpoints but given our renowned efficiency, the critics have a valid point.

The authorities are NOT stupid. It’s not that they are incompetent. They just lack the will. That’s why in the next ten years I’ve no doubt nothing much will have changed.

Does the Checkpoints and Immigration Authority (ICA)know what it is doing?

Is it fair to make the motoring public suffer Mr Minister?

  1. Sticks out like a sore thumb. Most impressed with the writer’s comparison of airport traffic and causeway traffic. Efficiency with one, neglect with the other. Strange are the ways of regulation.

  2. Your “Sticks out like a sore thumb” description perfectly sums it up. Returning to Singapore via Changi Airport you can’t help but be struck by the contrast with the land checkpoints at Tuas and Woodlands. In the former it’s a breeze while in the latter you get stuck for hours. ICA, do you know what you’re doing?
