LTA: get Woodlands Checkpoint congestion MOVING
It is strange. This love affair with JB routinely described by the PAP mouthpiece, The Straits Times, as riddled with crime.
Every day the Woodlands ICQ and Causeway see big jams. These days it normally takes about an hour or more to cross over to JB. Weekends see even heavier congestion.
Drivers curse and swear but still they brave the terrible conditions. Pity those with weak bladders and kids stuck in a car on a hot day.
While traffic clogs up the road to JB, over the other side at Tuas it’s all peaceful and plain sailing.
What deters most people from using Tuas ICQ is the much higher toll and the round about route to JB which is the holy grail for gluttons, shopaholics and entertainment.
To encourage more drivers to use Tuas, LTA should consider reducing the toll. LTA should not be driven by profit, or worse greed, as widely perceived but by public service.
LTA’s motto is “We keep your world MOVING”. It’s hoped LTA can live up to its motto.
