Singapore raises toll charges to match Malaysia's from Oct 1

AsiaOne | Friday, Sep 12, 2014

SINGAPORE - Singapore will be raising its toll charges for all vehicles (except motorcycles) leaving Singapore through the Causeway to match the new Malaysian toll from Oct 1.

A new matching Causeway toll will also be implemented for all vehicles (except motorcycles) entering Singapore, said the Land Transport Authority in a statement on Friday. There are no changes to the toll charges at the Second Link.

"Singapore has a long-standing policy of matching our toll charges at the Causeway and Second Link to those set by Malaysia," said LTA.

Singapore's revised toll charges at the Causeway Woodlands Checkpoint are as follows:

For foreign-registered cars, Singapore's Causeway entry toll (i.e. entering Singapore from Johor) will be recorded in the Land Transport Authority's (LTA) toll system and displayed to motorists upon entry into Singapore.

Payment will be deducted only upon leaving Singapore (whether through the Causeway or Second Link), together with the exit toll, Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) fee and Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) charges (if any). This will be the same as the existing practice for the Second Link entry toll.

For all other vehicles that do not pay VEP fees, i.e. all Singapore-registered vehicles and foreign-registered goods vehicles, buses and taxis, they will pay their Causeway entry toll upon entry into Singapore and their exit toll upon leaving Singapore. This will again be the same as the existing practice for the Second Link tolls.

Singapore will follow suit should Malaysia reduce or do away with the toll charges.
