SINGAPORE: Singapore may react in some form if the road charge implemented by Malaysia discriminates against Singapore-registered vehicles, the Straits Times reported.

It is referring to Malaysia’s latest move in introducing the RM20 road charge (RC) to all foreign private registered vehicles entering Malaysia via Johor.

“We note that Malaysia plans to implement a Road Charge of RM20 at the Causeway and Second Link checkpoints from November 1.

“If it discriminates against Singapore-registered vehicles, we will match it in some form,” a spokesman for Singapore’s Ministry of Transport was quoted as saying.

On Friday, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the RC would be collected each time motorists enter Malaysia via the Touch n Go card.

He added that the initial collection exercise will only involve foreign private registered vehicles excluding foreign registered motorcycles. - Bernama
