heck On Traffic Situation Before Embarking On Your Journey Through The Land Checkpoints This September School Holiday

Traffic flow through the land checkpointscdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1079776835 at Woodlands and Tuas is expected to be heavy during the September school holiday period from Friday, 6 September 2019 to Sunday,cdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1394039492 15 September 2019. Travellers using the land checkpoints during this period can expect delays and are advised to adjust theircdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1157898829 travel plans where necessary.

Travellers Have a Part to Play

Security at checkpoints remains the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA)’s top prioritycdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1286065185 against any potential threats to Singapore. With security checks coupled with large number ofcdnnode.node?loc=873736749#241428428 travellers using the checkpoints at the same time, traffic build-up is inevitable andcdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1316844591 delays can be expected. Travellers should factor the additional time needed for immigration clearance into their plans.

Before setting off on their journey, travellers are reminded to check and ensure that they bring their rightful passports with a remaining validity of six months or more. During peak periods, ICA has encountered many instances of travellers turning up at the land checkpoints either with a wrong passport, or without a passport. Such casescdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1056035157 will cause unnecessary delays, add to traffic build-up and inconvenience other travellers. ICA would also like to remind travellers that passports which have been reported lost can no longer be used for travelling even if they are found subsequently. These passports will be cancelled by ICA, and any attempt to use them is an offence under the Passports Act and may be punished by a fine of up to $10,000 or imprisonment of up to 10 years, or both. Passports that have been recovered must be surrendered to ICA within 14 days. Failure to surrender the recovered passport is an offence under thecdnnode.node?loc=873736749#279325774 Passports Regulationscdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1098134650 and may be punished by a fine of up to $3,000 or imprisonment for up to 2 years, or both.

Travellers are also reminded not to bring in prohibited items such as firecrackers, “Pop-Pop” or chewing gum.cdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1998766613 If travellerscdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1320246763 bring in dutiable or controlled items such as eggs, meat products and potted plants,cdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1645736635 they should proactively make declarations to ICA officers prior to checks.

Traffic Information

There were many instances of queue-cutting at both land checkpoints during peak periods. ICA advisescdnnode.node?loc=873736749#2122199905 against this as it can cause severe congestion and compromisecdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1784751414 motorists’ safety. Motorists are reminded to observe traffic rules, maintain lane discipline at all times and cooperate with checkpoint officerscdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1664243244 to ensure a safe environment at the checkpoints.

Before embarking oncdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1973892146 the journey, motorists are advised to check the traffic situation at Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints through the One Motoring website or viacdnnode.node?loc=873736749#2037208476 the Expressway Monitoring & Advisory System (EMAS)cdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1828010461 installed along the BKE and AYE respectively. Motorists can also check the ICA’s Facebook page for updates on the traffic situation at both land checkpoints.

Clearance Efficiency Without Compromising Security

The ICA will continue to take necessary measures to improve clearance efficiency as much as possiblecdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1452389450 without compromising security. The checkpoint officers will continue to monitor traffic conditions on a real time basiscdnnode.node?loc=873736749#836763966 and ensure optimal deployment of resources. The ICA will also continue to work withcdnnode.node?loc=873736749#1599275824 the Traffic Police to ensure road discipline at the critical junctions leading to the land checkpoints. ICA seeks travellers’ understanding and cooperation when using the land checkpoints during the peak periods.

Traffic will start building up from 5 Sep (Thur) late morning to early afternoon, as students go to school for just 2 hours in the morning for Teacher's Day celebrations.

Actually the crucial point is the appointed time slot. Not too sure what will happen if you missed it. That is why I'd say do it right the first time and save the hassle in future. I submitted my documents since they started VEP and was still not invited for installation. Yet my friends who applied in June got it first. Well... at most I just don't go in... not that I budget based on JB fuel.
