JOHOR BARU: Traffic in Johor Baru came to a standstill yesterday morning as close to 120,000 vehicles – triple the usual traffic – headed into Singapore via the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immi­gration and Quarantine Complex (CIQ) in view of the holiday season.

Those working in the city (Johor Baru) were also caught in a massive jam as some motorists made illegal U-turns in a desperate attempt to escape congestion on the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) leading to the CIQ near the Permas exit here.
