WATCH: Motorists stuck in jam for hours at Second Link, trying to get back to Singapore
The high volume of holiday-makers using the Second Link to return to Singapore caused a bad traffic build-up this evening (Dec 28).
At 8pm, The New Paper reader Shaharina Ahmad, 41, said she had been stuck on the Second Link for three hours.
“Tuas Second Link is always the smoother and easier border-crossing but in the last three hours, we only moved 15 to 20 metres. I am still at the first checkpoint,” she said.
The secretary was travelling with her 78-year-old mother, elder brother, elder sister and two daughters.
“We can’t go to the loo and there are no nearby shops to buy drinks. The guy at the toll also didn’t allow anyone to use their toilet,” she said.
“People have come out of their cars and were trying to make the best of the situation,” she added.
