  1. Didn't realize that the causeway has been around for a century. It was officially opened on 28 June 1924. Source: https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/international/asean/malaysia-singapore-causeway-bridging-borders-100-years EVERY morning, two to three 40-foot trailers from Malaysian dairy producer Farm Fresh depart from farms in Kota Tinggi and Desaru, each delivering 18,000 litres of fresh milk to Singapore. Founder and group managing director Loi Tuan Ee credits the Johor-Singapore Causeway – which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this month – for this seamless operation. “The proximity, easy accessibility and lower logistics costs enable us to send fresh milk to our Singaporean customers daily,” he told The Business Times. The Malaysia-listed dairy producer, based in Johor, began exporting to Singapore six years ago. Today, the city state is its largest export market, contributing around 5 per cent of total sales. Farm Fresh's trailers are among 3,000 to 4,000 trucks transporting goods from Malaysia that queue daily at the Johor Bahru Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex, waiting for clearance to enter Singapore. The 1 Km-long motorway crossing, also referred to as the Malaysia-Singapore Causeway, is one of the world's busiest border crossing, averaging 350,000 travellers and 100,000 vehicles daily. During peak periods such as school holidays, it handles more than 400,000 crossings daily. Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) projects that this will rise to 400,000 daily travellers by 2050. Some days, the numbers can be staggering. The recent Hari Raya Haji long weekend broke records with more than 530,000 people crossing on the Causeway and Tuas Second Link on Jun 14, said ICA. The Causeway is more that a bridge for Jeffrey Lai, president of the Johor Bahru Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry. "It's not just for workers travelling from JB (Johor Bahru)to Singapore everyday... it also promotes the flow investment, education and culture between both countries," said Lai, as he recalled pleasant bus journeys during his school days from Singapore to JB on Friday evenings. Lai grew up in Singapore, where his parents moved to when he was just three. After the returned to JB to start a business, Lai remained in Singapore for his secondary school education, making the cross-border commute a nearly weekend to visit them. "I still remember... every Sunday night, my father would drop me at the old customs complex, and I would take the number 170 bus from JB to Singapore," he reminisced. Now residing in JB, he still uses the Causeway to visit relatives, friends and business partners here, and to enjoy his favorite Singapore chicken rice. "The Causeway is an important link connecting both countries," he added, noting that more than 10,000 students cross the Causeway daily for their studies. They are not just Malaysian students from JB studying in Singapore, but also, increasingly, students from Singapore going to international schools in JB. Kelvin Kee, executive director of international business division at Singapore Business Federation (SBF), said bilateral trade between Singapore and Malaysia has grown, not just for merchandise, but also in services and digital trade. "Following the lifting of pandemic restrictions, we have seen the cross-border flow of people using the Causeway return to pre-pandemic levels, and even exceed such levels during peak periods," he told BT. He highlighted that Malaysia's proximity to Singapore offers business owners an attractive option for overseas expansion, with significantly lower costs for labour, overheads, rent and land. Since the GlobalConnect@SBF programme launched in November 2019 to aid Singapore businesses in overseas expansion, the business chamber has facilitated 32 successful projects into Malaysia as at December 2023, across various sectors including manufacturing, retail, education and services. In 2023, Johor garnered a total investment of RM43 billion (S$12.4 billion) from 751 approved projects, with more than 70 percent, or RM31 billion, coming from foreign direct investment (FDI). Over half of the FDI went to service sector, while the manufacturing sector received 30 percent. Lee Ting Han, Johor state investment, trade, consumer affairs, and human resources committee chairman, said 70 percent of the FDI in the state's manufacturing sector comes from Singapore. With ongoing projects and robust tourism, the state government is confident total investment in 2024 will surpass last year's. In the first quarter of 2024, 221 projects were approved, focusing on machinery and equipment, food processing, electrical and electronics, and chemical and petrolchemical sectors. Singapore is the second-largest investor in Malaysia and one of the biggest investment sources for Johor, especially the Iskandar region - Malaysia's southern growth corridor. From 2006 to September 2023, cumulative investment from Singapore to the Iskandar region reached RM45.8 billion - about 25 percent of total investment. Wile the Causeway remains the primary connection between the two cities, a significant catalyst for enhanced connectivity will be the JB-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS), set to begin operations by end-2026. In an earlier interview with BT, Malaysia's Mass Rapid Transit Corp CEO Mohd Zarif said the 4 km journey on the light rail shuttle service will take about five minutes. If all goes well, travelling from Bukit Chagar station in JB to Singapore will take only 15 minutes. Chua Hak Bin, regional co-head for macro at Maybank Investment Banking Group, expects the RTS, which is over two-thirds complete, to improve connectivity, reduce congestion and strengthen JB-Singapore ties. The RTS will increase its capacity to 10,000 passengers per hour per direction, compared to the current KTM rail service's 640 passengers.
  2. SINGAPORE - The Woodlands Checkpoint will be expanded, in a move that will see nine Housing Board blocks nearby acquired. Blocks 210 to 218 at Marsiling Crescent/Lane will be acquired as part of the massive redevelopment and expansion. HDB said this covers 732 sold flats, 53 rental flats, one rental kiosk, six rental shops and one rental eating house. The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) which announced updated plans for the checkpoint on Thursday (May 26), said the expansion will address traffic congestion and meet a projected 40 per cent increase in traffic volumes by 2050. In 2017, the ICA had said that the land checkpoint would be expanded to take in the Old Woodlands Town Centre. The checkpoint has to be extended further, the authority said on Thursday, noting that travel volume at Woodlands has returned to more than 90 per cent of pre-pandemic levels during weekends with the full reopening of land borders since April 1. Traffic volume is expected to return to the daily average of 300,000 travellers soon, and continue to increase thereafter, it added. "If the overall capacity is not increased, the travel time for vehicular traffic could increase by more than 60 to 70 per cent during peak periods by 2050," ICA said. In a media briefing, ICA's Deputy Commissioner Hsu Sin Yun said: "The main aim of this extension of Woodlands Checkpoint is to bring the clearance time during peak hours from the 60 minutes pre-Covid to 15 minutes eventually, even considering the increase in traffic that we project coming to the Checkpoint." HDB said flat owners at Blocks 212 to 218 will be offered the same benefits as those under the Selective En bloc Redevelopment Scheme (Sers), including compensation based on the market value of their flats and the option to buy a new flat with a fresh 99-year lease. Residents will have to move out by the second quarter of 2028. About 1,100 replacement flats will be built at Woodlands Street 13. Construction will begin in the third quarter of 2023 and should be completed by the fourth quarter of 2027. A study is ongoing to come up with an optimal design to clear heavy goods vehicles and motorcycles at the checkpoint, ICA said. As part of the expansion, the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) will be extended and upgraded to channel traffic directly to and from the Old Woodlands Town Centre extension, the authority added. The surrounding local road network will also be upgraded, it said. Beyond alleviating congestion, ICA said the extension aims to significantly reduce travel time - by as much as four times - by incorporating greater automation and flexi-lanes that can be toggled to either clear cars or motorcycles. The extension will also allow vehicle checks to be conducted in an area away from the main parts of the checkpoint, in a move to boost security. 9 blocks of residents in Marsiling celebrating! 😅 https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/9-hdb-blocks-in-marsiling-to-make-way-for-woodlands-checkpoint-expansion
  3. Johor Bahru-Singapore RTS link 'not progressing well', Malaysia missed deadlines: Khaw SINGAPORE: The Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) link project is behind schedule and "not progressing well", said Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan on Monday (Jan 14) in a written parliamentary reply. He was responding to questions from MP Ang Wei Neng on the progress of the project and its estimated timeline. The RTS project, which links Bukit Chagar station in Johor Baru and Woodlands North station in Singapore, was meant to be completed by 2024. Milestones in the project have been missed, said Mr Khaw, adding that Malaysia has repeatedly delayed confirmation of its joint venture partner. According to the bilateral agreement signed in January 2018, a joint venture company comprising Singapore’s SMRT and Malaysia’s Prasarana Malaysia should have been constituted by Jun 30 last year. The joint venture company should also have been appointed as the RTS Link operator (OpCo) through a Concession Agreement (CA) with Singapore's Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the government of Malaysia by Sep 30, 2018. Both milestones were missed. "Over the past few months, Malaysia has indicated that they are considering replacing their JV (joint venture) partner, but has delayed confirming their JV partner – first until September 2018, then until December 2018 and most recently on Dec 28, 2018, Malaysia requested to be given until Feb 28, 2019 to confirm their JV partner," said Mr Khaw. "As a result of these delays, the joint venture company has not even been incorporated to-date, let alone signed the CA. Meanwhile, Malaysia has also unilaterally suspended bilateral discussions to appoint the OpCo since August 2018, pending its confirmation of the Malaysian JV partner." Mr Khaw explained that under the bilateral agreement, if the joint venture company has not been incorporated or appointed as the RTS link operator, then both countries are obliged to jointly call a fair, international and transparent open tender to appoint an operator - unless both governments mutually agree to postpone these deadlines. "In line with the intent of the bilateral agreement, Singapore prepared and sent draft tender documents to Malaysia in November 2018 for their comments," said Mr Khaw. "There is urgency to this as, based on Singapore’s calculations, the open tender needs to be called by Mar 31, 2019 so that, as agreed under the bilateral agreement, the appointed OpCo can procure the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) core systems for the RTS Link before these procurement options expire." Malaysia has not responded to the draft tender documents, Mr Khaw said. He added that Singapore remains fully committed to implementing the RTS link, noting that LTA has assembled close to 70 employees and engineers for the project, as well as called civil tenders to construct related infrastructure. There had been uncertainty over the RTS link project in the wake of the Malaysian general election last May, as the new government reviewed agreements signed by the previous administration. While Malaysia decided to defer the KL-Singapore High Speed Rail project, Transport Minister Anthony Loke said that the country remains committed to the RTS project. Mr Khaw said on Monday that Singapore has been "reasonable and flexible" towards Malaysia because it understood its circumstances after the May general elections. "However, missing the agreed deadlines in the bilateral agreement to appoint the OpCo and thereafter failing to engage with Singapore to take steps to jointly call an open tender to appoint the OpCo has serious implications. "The bilateral agreement is an international treaty that is binding on the countries that signed it, regardless of any changes in the government," said Mr Khaw. He added that as a result of these delays, the start of RTS link services will likely be delayed beyond the original target of Dec 31, 2024. "We will continue to take a constructive approach to move the project forward," said Mr Khaw.

  4. SINGAPORE: Singapore Customs said the number of people who violated the three-quarter-tank rule doubled last year. It said the figure went up to about 4,000 compared to that the year before. The rule, which has been in place since 1991, requires all motorists travelling north out of Singapore, to fill their petrol tanks to at least three-quarter full. One driver said: "The (petrol) prices are pretty high right now. If I'm going to Malaysia, I will go with a three-quarter tank, and top up to a full tank before returning to Singapore. "I think that's the norm -- a lot of people do that". Another said: "Most of the time, I go in with three-quarter tank or more than three quarters, depending on the situation. I mean, since I'm going to Malaysia, I might as well top up there". In Singapore, petrol costs about two dollars per litre, while in Malaysia, it's about RM1.90 or about 80 Singapore cents. The price difference is why Singapore motorists are heading north to fill up their tanks. Singapore Customs said the number of people violating the three-quarter-tank rule has been on the rise between 2008 and 2010. Offenders face a maximum fine of S$500. Some motorists go even further by tampering with their fuel meter. Last year, 23 car owners were charged with that offence, down from 24 in 2009. In 2008, there were only four such cases. Offenders who tamper with their fuel meter face a S$5,000 fine or a year's jail. - CNA
  5. Imagine minding your own business on the road when suddenly some goondu driver knocks into you TWICE. What happened? A PHV (private hire vehicle) Honda Vezel was heading back to Singapore on the Causeway when they were knocked into by a Malaysian car. GG lah, knock one time and then they step on the gas pedal for another round. Driver went for the double tap. To make matters worse, the driver at fault apparently made the claim towards police that the camcar had suddenly braked, and so she could not stop on time. Upon watching the video, I say… Camcar was travelling at such a slow and steady pace still cannot press the brake pedal??? If anything it even looks like they accelerated a little bit! The camcar’s rental company also can't claim against the Malaysian car because it's a foreign vehicle. After the camcar driver requested a private settlement, she also went MIA,. forcing them to bear the cost of the damage. The camcar driver went on to say in the original Facebook post :“Buy insurance for what? Malaysia car hit us we cannot claim.” They hoped to “get some advice from the comments on how to settle without bearing the cost” , otherwise needing to pay $2000 in excess to their insurance company. Online chatter Unfortunately, it seems people in similar plights have found no solution to this either. Hope the camcar manages to get the situation resolved… ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  6. TL:DR – A Singaporean-registered Altis and a Trans cab travel on the fast lane of the causeway, but only the Altis gets apprehended by the Malaysian police. There are no shortcuts in life. Likewise, in recent times, there have been no shortcuts on the causeway. If you’re sick and tired of waiting in the queue, you can always try your luck on the fast lane. You might get away with it, and you might not. Just like these two vehicles in the 43-second video below. What happened? A Trans Cab followed by a red Altis cuts into the car lane from the fast lane of the causeway. The Trans cab successfully merges into the queue, whereas the Altis did not have much luck as three officers eventually surrounded it. Unspoken rule I was very curious as to how the Taxi managed to evade capture. Some of my colleagues mentioned that public transport (buses and taxis) could travel on the fast lane. I even saw some comments that supported this claim. I tried to search online for material that could further support this hypothesis, but I found myself hitting dead ends. No official document from any authoritative body states that taxis are allowed to use the fast lane. So, I’m still stuck with my question of “HOW?” Maybe the comments section can enlighten me. Online Chatter It looks like netizens are as confused as I am. What is a lucky escape? Or a ‘close one eye’ situation for taxis? ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!

  8. Got money but no manners. Or basic human decency. Watch the video to see why. What happened? On 10 June, last Saturday at the Johor-Singapore Causeway, a Malaysian Toyota Alphard decided that it would be better to risk going to jail and injuring a traffic marshal instead of facing the consequences. The Toyota was seen driving on the bus-lorry lane. This is seen as soon after it passes by the camcar on screen, a bus appears behind the Alphard. This did not go unnoticed by traffic marshals either, who were shown telling the Toyota to turn around and go to the start of the queue. Making a move to go to the right, the Toyota made a feint as if to comply before righting itself and going full speed ahead, before the officers could do something. If the officers made a move to block the Alphard from continuing straight, it is likely injuries would have occurred. Online chatter Many are angry that the Toyota driver can behave in such a manner, and call for punishments such as jail or being banned from entering Singapore again. Others are resigned, saying that the driver can simply come back to Singapore with new plates and get away scot-free. Punishment? The comments about swapping plates intrigued me. So I did some research about what measures are there to find this person again. If you don’t know, when travelling by car on the Causeway you need a Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP)/ Autopass card. This card would require your registration with your passport or identification card. So in theory, even if the driver comes back with a different number plate, the authorities can still catch them by looking at the current name attached to the current number plate and blacklist it! This way, the driver will be caught on their next attempt to come to Singapore. Here’s to hoping the law prevails. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community. Join us today!
  9. TLDR - The meme before the video starts This situation is just free entertainment for the camcar. The meme below sums up all you need to know honestly. What happened? A Toyota MPV driver on the causeway decided to start a fight with a Honda Vezel. We don’t have any context to this as the video starts here, but I assume it’s because the Vezel is trying to cut the queue and go first. The Toyota driver got out and kicked the Vezel in the side. That kick had some oomph to it. Some words were exchanged when the passenger of the Vezel decides to step out in the driver’s place. Reminds me of Jojo stands, or sending your Pokemon out to do battle. The two men proceed to argue, with the Toyota driver gesturing to his vehicle. I assume this is to point out his car is in front. You might be thinking this is obvious, but the Vezel driver sure doesn’t think so. Both sides have raised hands. There’s a lot of pointing and pushing around before the Toyota driver eventually concedes and goes back into his car before driving off. The Vezel passenger lingers and waits for him to leave before going back into the car, as if expecting a sudden comeback. And finally the queue moves again. It’s a shame there’s no audio. Online chatter Some people criticised not the fact that the argument happened, but that it didn’t escalate to blows being exchanged. Two others noted the Toyota driver starting it by kicking the Honda. Humans are dark… Others made jokes about how they look like they were going to kiss, or how the Vezel driver sent to passenger out to find in their stead (John Wick 4, IYKYK) ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  10. TL-DR- Kia Cerato tried to cut queue on Causeway and forced to turn back. Camcar does some research and finds out he owes TP money We usually say O$P$ when we want people to pay back what they owe with haste, and we usually associate it with loan sharks. However, our traffic police may want to take a page out of the ah longs’s book for this one. What happened? Our cam car was on the causeway one day when a Kia Cerato passed by him. The only issue is that this Kia was in a bus lane, exclusively for buses. Which they must have figured out eventually since a BUS was in front of them. Let alone all the other signage on the causeway. However, traffic police promptly directed the Kia to turn back to where it came from. In the face of authority, the driver could not do anything but comply after being caught. Sleuthing The camcar driver was not satisfied with this though, and did some digging on the KIA. Going through the Traffic Offense Payment Systems, he found out the Kia driver owed $700 for two separate offenses with one from December 2022. Bro has gone more than 4 months without paying his fines and is still driving. Online chatter Of course, many criticised the authorities for how the Cerato was still able to be roaming around and possibly enter Singapore despite outstanding fines. Others saw this as proof that punishments toward foreign cars were useless as they could simply escape back to their own country. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  11. Last Sunday night 21 August, I saw on the traffic cam that there was a MASSIVE traffic jam returning to Singapore on the JB side. The Causeway was clear so the bottleneck is the JB Custom. The jam according to Waze extended past Taman Pelangi on the EDL side and past Century Gardens on the Tebrau Road. If you are familiar with JB you will realize how massive it was. Anyone know the cause? Did the JB Immig system crash or all the officers go on strike? It was crazy. It must have taken people 6-8 hours to clear. Anyone caught in that Jam and can shed light on what is the issue?
  12. The following incident took place along the causeway between Singapore and Malaysia. And needless to say, it was absolutely terrifying. Watch it here: What Happened? The incident reportedly occurred on the JB towards the Singapore side of the causeway. A Malaysian cargo truck lost control before ramming through an entire causeway worth of vehicles stuck in traffic, almost resembling a Grand Theft Auto gameplay. As a result, numerous Singapore and Malaysia vehicles were damaged, including a Singapore-registered Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. NGL, it breaks my heart to see an iconic JDM sports car get wrecked by the Malaysian truck. The Big Question Now, for the big question that has been on my mind since I watched this video. How on Earth are all those parties involved in the accident going to claim for their damaged vehicles? And also, I am guessing those Singapore-registered vehicles involved in the accident would have a hard time claiming their insurance, considering that the accident occurred outside of Singapore. Regardless, this unfortunate incident brought a massive headache and a ton of inconvenience for everyone involved. And hopefully, everyone involved in this massive accident are doing alright🙏 Netizens' Comments It is gonna be catastrophic. Damn, right it is! True dat! Regardless of what happened, it is important to count your blessings. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  13. A Honda Shuttle has been caught on camera intentionally cutting the queue on a causeway and damaging a Skoda Superb Ambition’s side mirror at the Johor causeway. If the Skoda vehicle was damaged, the owner of the Honda Shuttle might possibly be liable to pay for damages incurred Watch the video uploaded on SGRV’s Facebook page below 290664887_1037877250426023_257722045206580541_n.mp4 After seeming like it was too impatient to wait in line, the Honda Shuttle ended up trying to cut into the car lane by driving on the bus lane so as to skip the long waiting time for the queue. This ultimately ended up causing damage to the other vehicle waiting in line. Looks like the stereotype of Singaporeans being ‘kanchiong’ is true after all. Netizen Comments Caught on tape, this inconsiderate behavior draws the ire of some netizens. Many have condemned the Honda Shuttle for its reckless behavior and for selfishly causing damage to the other vehicle just to save up some time for itself. It does seem as if netizens are aware of who is really in the wrong here. In my opinion, the Hondo Shuttle should receive severe consequences for his actions. Not only is it an extremely selfish act, but it could have led to more potential traffic disruptions and accidents. This itself is a reason for the driver to be punished severely for his behavior. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news, and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  14. TL;DR – A Toyota Voxy with Singaporean plates plays the brake check game and blocks a Malaysian Van at the causeway checkpoint (Malaysian side) and ends up getting intentionally rammed in the rear. It’s common sense to behave yourself when you’re in someone else’s territory. But apparently, this Voxy driver did not get the memo. The Story According to the caption of the video, The Voxy was playing the braking game and blocking the Malaysian Van. This then provoked the Van into reversing and intentionally accelerating into the rear of the Voxy. Insurance How? Some netizen raised the issue of claiming insurance from the Van. They are not wrong. Even if the accident happens on Singapore soil, it’s extremely difficult to claim insurance from a Malaysian vehicle.

  18. Does anyone know if the height of a car + roof rack + bicycle on roof can clear the Causeway and/or Tuas 2nd Link into Malaysia? Many thanks..
  19. Malaysia's transport ministry has issued a press release stating that it will defer enforcement of its Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) 'during peak-hour traffic operation' until further notice. The decision was made after several issues related to the VEP implementation were made known to the ministry, including difficulties in getting an appointment for the VEP-RFID Tag installation. The ministry added that this affects all outbound traffic at Bangunan Sultan Iskandar and Kompleks Sultan Abu Bakar, or at the Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints respectively, until further notice.

  20. Say the small van with GXXXX plate, entering JB for a day? Must it have the permit, http://www.kln.gov.my/web/sgp_singapore/faqs Is there any way around it?
  21. Dear all, I was having a minor collision with this Causeway Link bus(yellow ones) on the causeway bridge towards Singapore custom (just came out from JB custom), I was trying to merge into lane 1 with signal on and the bus refuse to give way and hit the right side of my car near the rear wheel and rear right door while I already stopped (not sure whether he purposely hit me or not). So this bus driver said we both report to insurance and refused to provide me his particulars stating the company name and plate number sufficed. I filed online accident report with my insurer (AIG) and made police report also when I came back to Singapore. I would like to know that if I don't claim my insurance company (new car excess $800 and lost my NCD) and go outside workshop to do the job(around $850), will there be any problem? If the bus company insurer claim against mine, do I still have to fork out another $800 excess for this case? Have been calling AIG hotline for the whole morning but couldn't get through, so would like to hear dear bro's opinion on this. Thanks and happy new year to all!
  22. I entered Johor thru Tanjong Kupang on 13 Feb, i remembered I did tap my TnG card at the immigration booth. But when I check my TnG card account now, there is no RM20 transaction, though all the toll charges for that day was reflected in my account. So is the road charge still in effect or just waived for CNY period ? Anyone notice the same?
  23. It has been reported that the Johor state government has collected RM1 million in Road Charge fees since the system was implemented in November. According to The Sun, the law states that the government is entitled to receive 25 percent of the RM20 fee that is levied on Singapore registered vehicles coming into Malaysia either via the Causeway or the Second Link in Gelang Patah. It is said that the government is expected to collect as much as RM144 million a year in revenue via the Road Charge fee. This is based on the a projected figure of around 20,000 foreign registered private vehicles entering Malaysia daily. Also in the article, traffic was reported to have dropped around 10 percent after the Road Charge was imposed in the first week of November. However, the following week saw a return to normal traffic and has stayed so since. For those who aren't aware, the Road Charge is paid through Touch n’ Go electronic payment at passport checking booths on top of the toll charge.
