WITH the upcoming Chinese New Year holidays, heavy traffic is expected to cause delays at the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) said.
Traffic could build up from Monday and this is expected to continue until Feb 2.
ICA said in a statement that traffic towards Johor at the checkpoints is likely to be heavier from next Tuesday to Thursday, while traffic towards Singapore is expected to be heavier on Feb 1 and Feb 2.
Traffic bound for Singapore at the Woodlands Checkpoint was slow moving yesterday at 2.30pm.
To help ease the congestion at the checkpoints, the ICA advised drivers to keep to their lanes at all times.
Travellers could also consider car-pooling or using public transport.
