Heavy traffic at checkpoints during Hari Raya Haji weekend

With the Hari Raya Haji long weekend kicking off, motorists in Singapore are flocking to cross the JB border.

So much so that on 15 June, there appears to be heavy congestion on the Johor-Singapore Causeway.

The two land checkpoints are seeing traffic jams expected to extend commutes by up to three hours.

ICA warns commuters to expect delays and to check traffic conditions before departure.

Expect a 3-hour journey on the Causeway to JB

According to the Checkpoints.sg app, the journey to JB was expected to take between two to three hours.

The situation at around 12.32pm today (15 June) showed a severe tailback before the Causeway.
