  2. 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. Johor police chief Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff speaking about the Johor crime situation to Singaporean and Malaysian media in Johor Bahru on Thursday. The police chief of Johor has declared his state to be "safe beyond doubt". Referring to negative perceptions of the crime situation in Johor and recent crime statistics, Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said that the state's police are in "full control". Datuk Mohd Mokhtar noted that the number of violent and property crime cases in Johor fell about 36 per cent between 2008 and last year. Overall, there were 17,105 crime cases in the state last year, or about 10 per cent less than in 2012. The police chief also assured Singaporeans that they are not specifically targeted by criminals: "Crimes are committed when an opportunity arises regardless of (a victim's) race, religion, sex and nationality."

Source: https://mustsharenews.com/johor-upgrades-congestion-causeway/ Johor Plans Upgrades To Ease Congestion At Causeway & Borders With Singapore Malaysia has announced that they will allocate RM168.7 million (S$48.67 million) to address congestion at the entry points into Johor Bahru (JB). This will include upgrades at locations such as the two land checkpoints. In addition, workers under the Immigration Department will be able to enjoy incentives. Johor plans upgrades to address congestion at Causeway According to Channel NewsAsia (CNA), Johor will receive RM168.7 million (S$48.6 million) to introduce measures that will ease congestion for travellers entering and leaving Malaysia. The four measures will be in three different projects, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said. In addition, Immigration Department officers on land duty will receive incentives. Malaysia has allocated RM7.93 million (S$2.2 million) a year for these incentives. The upgrades include the construction of 77 automated border control systems or M-Bike lanes for a total cost of RM61.7 million (S$17.8 million). The Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex at the Sultan Iskandar Building will have 44 such lanes. Meanwhile, the Kompleks Sultan Abu Bakar (KSAB) of the Second Link Crossing in Iskandar Puteri will have 33. Furthermore, there are plans to build halls, upgrades and carry out new projects at KSAB, amounting to RM106.9 million (S$30.8 million). The construction of a covered pedestrian walkway along the Causeway is reportedly also in the works. Number of travellers expected to return to pre-pandemic figures Datuk Seri Fadillah said that the incentives for Immigration Department officers is in line with the Madani Malaysia framework, reported Malay Mail. In addition, there will be further discussion to extend them further to Immigration Department officers in Sabah and Sarawak. Explaining the reason for the upgrades, Datuk Seri Fadillah noted the expected increase in travellers entering the country via the Malaysia-Singapore land crossings. He estimated the increase to be at a rate of 15% yearly. By 2025, the figure could stand at 157 million travellers. As of last month, 98 million travellers reportedly crossed the Malaysia-Singapore crossings. Datuk Seri Fadillah said that this number will be expected to return to pre-Covid 19 figures, increasing to about 136 million by the end of this year.

  7. Source: https://mustsharenews.com/cutting-queue-tuas-checkpoint/ Vehicles Cutting Queue At Tuas Checkpoint To Be Barred From Entering Malaysia, Says Onn Hafiz Ghazi Motorists stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic at the land crossings to Johor Bahru (JB) might be tempted to cut queue to skip part of the jam. However, not only is this practice against the rules, it might get you sent back to Singapore. That’s what Johor Chief Minister (CM) Onn Hafiz Ghazi has said, at least when it comes to the Tuas Second Link. Malaysian police on duty on 1st day of long weekend In a Facebook post on Friday (2 June) morning, Mr Onn Hafiz noted that officers from the Royal Malaysia Police were on duty at the Sultan Abu Bakar Immigration, Customs, Quarantine and Security Complex (KSAB). The complex handles vehicles heading into Malaysia from Singapore’s Tuas Checkpoint. He thanked them for their work controlling the traffic congestion there on the first day of the Vesak Day long weekend. Vehicles cutting queue at checkpoint cannot enter Malaysia: Chief Minister Mr Onn Hafiz also said something that frequent drivers to JB might want to take note of. Vehicles cutting queue at the checkpoint cannot enter Malaysia, he understands. Instead, they will be directed back to Singapore — making their entire journey a waste of time. The CM shared a photo of traffic cones on the road near KSAB, which will make it difficult for potential queue-cutters to get ahead. Double white lines on Causeway to prevent queue cutting As for the Causeway, Singapore’s Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) has demarcated the two-lane viaduct leading towards Woodlands Checkpoint with double white lines. They’ve also implemented enforcement cameras there to deter drivers from using the motorcycle lane to jump queue. Johor’s CM didn’t explicitly mention what steps his side would take to prevent queue cutting at the Causeway. Netizens approve of checkpoint enforcement to prevent cutting queue Nevertheless, most netizens approved of what Mr Onn Ghazi said, with one saying that motorists should be polite to those who’ve been queueing for hours. Another netizen suggested that the police be on duty 24/7 at the checkpoints, especially during peak periods like weekends. That’s because it’s a “free for all” when there’s no police enforcement, he claimed. Others pleaded for Mr Onn Ghazi to help alleviate the massive jams from Woodlands and Tuas Checkpoints since the long weekend began on Thursday (1 June) evening. ‘Unusual congestion’ at both checkpoints since 1 June Indeed, in a subsequent post that evening, the Johor CM noted that there was “unusual congestion” at both checkpoints since Thursday. This was due to the Vesak Day public holiday creating a long weekend that also coincided with the school holidays. On Thursday night, more than 258,000 travellers crossed the Causeway, while 63,000 more used the Second Link, he said. The large crowd caused massive human and vehicular traffic, with travellers queuing for up to seven hours. Johor CM takes steps to prevent future congestion To ensure that such a situation doesn’t happen again, Mr Onn Ghazi has asked the management of both checkpoints on the Malaysian side to consider opening counters specifically for pedestrians and public transport, especially during holidays. He also requested officers from the Malaysian Immigration Department, the Royal Customs Department of Malaysia, the Royal Malaysian Police and the Malaysian Volunteer Department to continue to ensure the smooth flow of traffic across the border. With these steps, hopefully traffic at our checkpoints will improve the next time a long weekend rolls around. Have news you must share? Get in touch with us via email at [email protected].

  8. This could have gone horribly wrong if not for the camcar’s situational awareness. What happened? On 5 June 2023, a camcar and his friends were on a trip to Genting when they encountered some “police officers”. In the Facebook post, the camcar was in Kulai when 3 men in a Honda tried to wave them down and get them to stop. The men were wearing police vests and facemasks, using blinkers and flashlights in order to get the camcar to pullover. The camcar suspected something was wrong and focused on not letting the Honda get ahead and stop them. The camcar called the actual police, who told them not to stop and go to the nearest police station if still followed. Online chatter People praised the camcar for spreading this information, preventing others from getting caught in the same trap. On a lighter note, many roasted the impostors for the slow car. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  9. TL;DR - Chief Minister of Johor scolds the staff in CIQ for slow work and half of the counters being closed. Regardless if you go to JB for holiday, everyone knows about the horrific jams on the Causeway. And those are on normal days, let alone holiday periods where jams can last up to 7 hours. However, those days might be over after this. Watch the video to see why! What happened? On 20th April yesterday, Chief Minister of Johor Onn Hafiz Ghazi came to Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex to conduct a spot check before the Hari Raya holidays. And he was not pleased. We can see in the video that he asks what counters were open for cars to pass through, seeing that at least 4 were red in the video. (How many red ones?) After his check, he tells the staff at CIQ to sort out their human resources, and that he will wait until the situation at the causeway is settled. Chief Minister Ghazi went on to tell the media that efficiency at the BSI complex was not up to his expectations and it was currently not operating at its maximum level, saying that it was operating at 80% efficiency. He was quoted saying “I have requested all counters, whether for cars, motorcycles, bus passengers or pedestrians, to be open and in working order. All the technical and staffing issues must be resolved fast.” With Hari Raya looming, the checkpoints are sure to be full with people going to JB for a short holiday. If the minister can get all the checkpoints open, maybe we won’t have to wait as long this time round. Online chatter People praised the Chief Minister for coming down and trying to improve the situation at the checkpoint. Others expressed doubt that there would be any change at all. ========= 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. Singapore-Desaru ferry service approved by MPA after safety requirements fulfilled SINGAPORE: A ferry service between Tanah Merah terminal in Singapore and Desaru Coast terminal in Johor has been approved by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). Ferry operator Batamfast will run the service, but a start date has yet to be announced. "The commencement of the new ferry service is pending Batamfast’s final preparations to operate this new ferry service, including obtaining the necessary approvals from other authorities," said MPA in a statement on Tuesday (Jun 21). Transport Minister S Iswaran said in a Facebook post on Tuesday that Batamfast may start running services between the two ferry terminals when it is ready. "The start of the ferry service between Singapore and Desaru is another step forward in restoring connectivity between Singapore and Malaysia," he added. The MPA approval comes after the authority said in April that it would approve the ferry service only if it was satisfied the service could be operated safely. The route will be operated by Batamfast's subsidiary Desaru Link Ferry Services, and the journey is expected to take about two hours. The authority received a proposal from Batamfast in March this year to operate the new service between Desaru Coast and Tanah Merah. MPA had asked Batamfast to submit a navigational safety assessment for the proposed route and an emergency response plan. It also asked for an attestation from the certifying authorities that the ferries to be used were fit for the proposed voyage. "MPA has reviewed the submission and assessed that Batamfast has met the safety requirements for the proposed ferry service," it said on Tuesday. Besides the proposed direct route between Desaru Coast and Tanah Merah ferry terminals, MPA has also approved Batamfast’s application of an alternative route between Tanah Merah and Tanjung Pengelih ferry terminals, to be utilised in the event of inclement weather or rough sea conditions. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/singapore-desaru-coast-tanah-merah-ferry-service-start-batamfast-2759856 2 hours to get to Desaru, sounds alright ...

(Photo: AFP/Vincent Thian) Vanessa Paige Chelvan 24 Mar 2022 04:13PM (Updated: 24 Mar 2022 04:13PM) Bookmark WhatsApp Telegram Facebook Twitter Email LinkedIn SINGAPORE: From Apr 1, fully vaccinated travellers from Singapore and Malaysia will be able to travel across the land border between both countries quarantine-free and without the need for COVID-19 tests. This will apply to all categories of travellers and modes of transport via the land border. Prime Ministers Lee Hsien Loong and Ismail Sabri Yaakob issued a joint statement on Thursday (Mar 24). Here it is in full: "Prime Minister of the Republic of Singapore Lee Hsien Loong and Prime Minister of Malaysia Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob spoke on the phone on Mar 24, 2022. The Prime Ministers recognise the good progress that both countries have made in vaccinating their respective populations and managing the COVID-19 pandemic, and note the progress made in resuming cross-border travel through the Vaccinated Travel Lanes (Air) and (Land). As Singapore and Malaysia transition to living with COVID-19, both Prime Ministers have agreed that it is timely to further reopen the land border. From Apr 1, 2022, for travel across the land border between Singapore and Malaysia, both countries will allow fully vaccinated travellers to enter without the need to undergo quarantine or testing, including pre-departure and on-arrival tests. This will apply to all categories of travellers and modes of transport via the land border. PM Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said “As Malaysia reopens our borders to international travellers starting 1 April 2022, we will achieve another significant milestone in facilitating cross border travel with our immediate neighbour, Singapore. Today’s announcement reflects the long-standing relations and multifaceted cooperation as well as strong people-to-people ties with positive impacts on the economies and livelihood of the peoples of both countries”. “Singapore and Malaysia enjoy deep, warm and multi-faceted relations, as well as strong people-to-people ties. Today’s announcement is a significant milestone in our transition towards living with COVID-19. It reflects the strong collaboration both sides have enjoyed throughout the pandemic and will help both countries emerge stronger from this crisis,” PM Lee Hsien Loong said." Source: CNA/vc
  12. He did it before, and he WILL do it again! Mahathir strikes again! Mahathir on his decision to withdraw his appeal on the ownership of Pedra Branca after the International Court of Justice granted Singapore sovereignty over the island in 2008. He then decided to talk about well, water cost again lol. 😂 Go to mothership to read the full information. As Mothership rightfully puts it on their Facebook caption, "Just Mahathir being Mahathir." I'll highlight his key comments about Singapore below. Singapore has become "a foreign country" Mahathir also commented further on Singapore in his lengthy Facebook post. He said that Malaysia has a "liberal policy" on land ownership, which makes it vulnerable to losing its rights over lands owned by foreigners. "If foreigners own a large part of the land, then the country, physically, is not owned by the citizens," he wrote. "That's what happened to Singapore." He added that Singapore was a Malay land, but today, it has apparently become a "foreign country". Malaysia "sold" parts of the country to Singapore Another point that Mahathir raised in the post was that one of the ways to lose a country is to sell its sand or water to others. "If the sand that was sold off to other countries was used for their reclamation and expansion, then it's the same as selling off parts of our country to others," he wrote. "We sold Singapore," he said, referring to the two countries' past history. He also said the land and water sold to Singapore made the island bigger, and it is now owned by Singaporeans, developed under the Singapore government. "This is the reason why Malaysia prohibits the selling of our land, and disputed the selling of water to other nations." Unfortunately, he said, "some administrations of the Malaysian government" are willing to sell raw water for three cents per 1,000 gallons to foreign countries "because they are lazy or scared to demand their rights".

  16. S’pore Aircraft Makes Emergency Landing On Johor Highway This Morning Due To Technical Issues source: https://mustsharenews.com/emergency-landing-johor-highway/ Singapore Aircraft From Seletar Airport To Melaka Makes Emergency Landing On Johor Highway Motorists travelling along the highway in Johor this morning had the opportunity to witness a bizarre sight. A light aircraft from Singapore made an emergency landing near Sedenak, Johor – around 49km northwest of Johor Bahru – due to technical issues. As a result, dozens of firemen and police personnel were deployed to the scene, as seen in a video uploaded by the Royal Malaysia Police below. They later helped to push the aircraft to the roadside so that the highway will no longer be obstructed. Singaporean pilots requested to make emergency landing in Johor According to a media release by Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM), CEO Captain Chester Voo confirmed that a plane from Singapore had made an emergency landing this morning (22 Nov). The private plane – a light aircraft type Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza – was operated by Premier Air Singapore, and was on the way to Melaka from Seletar Airport. CAAM Johor’s Air Traffic Control Tower received a request from the Singaporean pilots at 10.40am to land at Senai International Airport in JB due to technical issues. Pilots in stable condition Despite the emergency landing, Captain Voo said the pilots are in stable condition. The aircraft was also successfully moved out of the way so motorists may continue to use the highway at ease. Here’s another video of the plane after it was moved to the side of the road. Captain Voo added that the Air Accident Investigation Bureau – under Malaysia’s Transport Ministry – will conduct an investigation. Plane’s engine malfunctioned at 5,000 ft altitude Channel NewsAsia (CNA) reported that the 2 Singaporeans pilots are Dr Yang Kuang Ying and Mr Saleehullah Abdul Majid. Johor police said the pilots were flying at around 5,000 ft above ground when they heard a strange noise from the engine at 11.05am. The plane’s engine was reportedly malfunctioning, as the petrol gauge “fell rapidly”. They then made an emergency landing at the 47.8km mark of the highway’s southbound lane. Johor police also confirmed that there were no injuries, and no damage to public property in the incident. Thankful that pilots landed safely Despite having to deal with a malfunctioning engine, we’re glad that the 2 pilots were quick to act and landed safely. Though we can’t help but wonder if they will have to undergo quarantine now due to Covid-19 safety measures. Anyway, kudos to the Malaysian authorities for swiftly moving the plane to the side of the road, so motorists can continue using the highway.
  17. Johor Couple’s House Burgled While They Work In S’pore, Angbaos & Food Found In A Mess source: https://mustsharenews.com/couples-house-burgled/ Johor Couple’s House Burgled As Home Owners Are Working In Singapore A home burglary might not be common in Singapore due to our low crime rate. However, such happenings may be more rampant in other countries. Unfortunately, a Johor couple’s house was burgled when they were working in Singapore. The house was in disarray after the ransacking, with signs that the burglars stayed in the premises for a few days. Furthermore, the couple’s house was not the only one that was broken into. Couple’s house left in mess, with car stolen In a Facebook post by one of the victims’ older brother, he said the iron gates of the house had been knocked open. According to him, the couple had been working in Singapore and were unable to return to Malaysia due to closed borders and strict Covid-19 safety measures. A look inside the house showed a frightening scene of scattered belongings and opened ang baos. The hurricane of mess continued into the bedroom, where the cupboards were emptied and clothes were strewn all over the floor. Furthermore, the couple’s car, a white Proton Satria, was nowhere to be found. This is the last thing someone would hope to see when they return from overseas. Burglars may have stayed for a while According to the victim’s brother, there were signs that the burglars had an extended stay in the couple’s house. Leftover food and urine were found in the property and there was evidence of drug usage. Neighbours only became suspicious when they heard strange sounds at home and called the police. Couple were not the only victims in area Unfortunately, a neighbour also had his house looted after he left home to visit his wife who had given birth. Jewellery and cash were stolen from the house, shared the older brother. However, it is uncertain whether the same burglars were involved in the looting. Take precautions for extended overseas stays This incident, though horrifying, is a reminder for us to take the necessary precautions when we are expecting to be away from home for an extended period of time. A CCTV and burglar alarm may act as deterrence for criminals. Even in Singapore, we are not exempted from the risk of burglary, even with our low crime rate. After all, an empty house is always a tempting opportunity for looters.
  18. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asia/singapore-johor-jb-causeway-malaysia-build-pedestrian-walkway-13108442 ISKANDAR PUTERI: Johor is looking to build an air-conditioned walkway that will stretch about 350m along its side of the Malaysia-Singapore Causeway. The Johor state government has requested RM30 million (S$9.88 million) in funding from the Malaysian federal government for the walkway, said Johor public works, infrastructure and transport committee chairman Mohd Solihan Badri on Sunday (Sep 13). The allocation request earlier this year was doubled from an initial RM15 million after a redesign to include escalators and air-conditioning, he added on the sidelines of the Johor state assembly proceedings at the Sultan Ismail Building. Under the proposal, the walkway will stretch 350m and end at the border with Singapore, said Mohd Solihan. "For Singapore, I’m not sure how long the distance is going to be," he added. It is estimated that hundreds of pedestrians crossed the Causeway daily on foot before Malaysia enforced the Movement Control Order in March to curb the spread of COVID-19. Although no action has been taken by the authorities so far, pedestrians are actually prohibited on the Causeway, according to Mohd Solihan. Mohd Solihan also said that Singapore has shown interest in extending the proposed covered walkway on its side of the Causeway. He said that several officials from the Singapore Consulate-General in Johor Bahru expressed interest in the project at a recent meeting. “They asked for the design of the walkway so that they can submit a proposal to their government to extend the walkway,” added Mohd Solihan.

This App Lets You Hitch A Ride To JB Or S'pore For A Faster Commute. Johor Bahru might be a favourite among Singaporeans for a quick getaway, but travelling across the border means needing to endure excruciating hours-long jams. While there isn’t any solution to ending jams altogether, fewer vehicles on the road still can result in a shorter wait. This is where Sameride App wants to come in. Sameride App, first established in 2016 in Washington, DC, is an on-demand carpool app that wants to “enhance ride communication among drivers and riders commuting on the same route”. Almost 300 Johor-Singapore commuters have pre-registered in the Sameride app over the last two weeks, and the app is fully operational for Johor-Singapore commuters starting 30 Dec 2019. Sameride estimates that users who commute between Johor and Singapore will be able to significantly reduce the cost of their commute up to 2 times compared to taxi services. The Sameride App is available for Android and iOS, and users have the flexibility to be riders or drivers, set their pick-up time and locations, create ride offers or requests a few hours or a few days before their commute.

At the time of writing this article, the post has since garnered over 100 comments (I’ll share some at the end of this article) which are pretty one-sided. Here’s the video if you haven’t already seen it. If you have, watch it again. It' bloody hilarious! Video from Roads.sg YouTube Channel Confirm Singaporean According to the Roads.sg video description, this incident occurred across the causeway. Screenshot from Roads.sg YouTube Channel The owner of what we believe to be a 2016 Toyota Vios, is definitely a Singaporean. I can say this with assurance because I've pumped petrol in J.B. before and you only ever see Singaporeans do stupid shit like this while Malaysians laugh at us. The back of the car looks similar! Do you save money in the end? If you're not too familiar with what is going on, the logic is simple. Bubbles are formed when you pump petrol in your car and these bubbles take up precious space in your fuel tank that could go to more fuel. Therefore, if you shake your car, the bubbles will dissipate, allowing you to get more petrol and more savings. Alright, you might save a couple of bucks, but the repercussions don't make sense to me. Not worth it You will eventually wreck your rear suspension which is not cheap to repair. You look like an idiot You give Singaporeans a bad name You will kena caught on video like this guy and, everyone will know you for the wrong reasons What the people say The answer is nothing. You saved nothing. Pretty sure he is. Facebook comments taken from Roads.sg Facebook Page That’s funny af.
  22. media quoted saying that only need to clear custom once only. where is it ar?
  23. If you've been one of the "kan cheong" people waiting to get your Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) approved before driving into Malaysia, here's some good news for you - The implementation of the VEP scheme will only commence next year. According to The Straits Times, Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke claimed that the delay is due to the system's inability to cope with the exponential number of vehicles that needed to install the RFID tag. It seems that many Singaporeans are not surprised by this delay. It’s not the first time that there has been a delay with the implementation of the VEP and you can be sure people were quick to call that out. And some people make pretty sound arguments. Wait, does this mean that Singaporean car owners with the RFID tags did the application and probably wasted a weekend queueing up in Malaysia for nothing? Sounds about right. Malaysia Boleh? Case closed. ----------------------------------------------- Still wondering how to get your VEP?

  24. Malaysia has halted the enforcement of its Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) at the two Johor checkpoints, the Ministry of Transport said on 1 October, following several teething problems last week. The ministry did not say if, or when, the VEP enforcement would be started. Malaysia's VEP enforcement was scheduled to begin on 1 October, with the scheme conducted only during non-peak hours. Read our full coverage here, or learn more about how to obtain your VEP here.
