Singapore revises Causeway toll charges. You have to pay more from Oct 1
Singapore has revised the toll charges at the Causeway. No surprise here. The only question we have is: how much more?
From Oct 1, all vehicles entering Singapore will have to pay between $1.40 and $5.30. Motorcycles are exempt. Previously, vehicles did not have to pay to enter Singapore.
Vehicles leaving Singapore will have to fork out between $1.30 and $5.10 more.
The revised toll charges are for the Causeway Woodlands Checkpoint. There are no changes to the toll charges at the Second Link.
The Land Transport Authority's (LTA) announcement did not come as a surprise as its spokesman had said on Aug 1 that Singapore would match Johor's new higher Causeway tolls "in the next few weeks".
In a press release on Friday, LTA reiterated that it had long-standing policy of matching Malaysia's toll charges.
It added that if Malaysia were to reduce or do away with the toll charges, it would follow suit.
For foreign-registered cars, the entry and exit toll will be deducted upon the vehicle leaving Singapore.
For vehicles that do not pay the Vehicle Entry Permit fee (all Singapore-registered vehicles and foreign-registered goods vehicles, buses and taxis), the toll will be deducted on the spot.
