Woodlands Causeway Traffic Always Jam

Causeway Traffic image taken on Saturday morning of July 2011

I was thinking of going to Malaysia for a trip this morning; therefore the first thing I went to check on the Internet is the traffic condition at the Woodlands Causeway Checkpoint (see image above). The photo was taken at 11:23hrs on the 16th of July – yes, it may be slightly late in the morning. However, when I initially checked the Internet, it was around 7am in the morning.

What a¬†disappointment. From the analysis and past experience, I know that I’m going to be stuck there in the jam on fewer than 2 hours. Decided that the time is best spent elsewhere, I gave up the thought of driving across the straits to our neighbour. Next step, perhaps just drive around Singapore to see what’s good for breakfast.

    hi keith, am sporean living in JB. Well, actually the problem always from Spore CIQ. After working hours, traffic starts from BKE to Spore CIQ and once out from Spore CIQ, the the traffic is always good and smooth flow to JB CIQ. Same goes in the morning. Smooth flow from JB CIQ but stuck at Spore CIQ. I really have no idea why. ICA guys even open up the lorry area for cars to travel in…STILL THERE’S TRAFFIC JAM!! Tired of it!

    I agree with you, Shee. Luckily for me, I do not have to commute between JB and Singapore often. Only goes to JB for leisure. Nowadays, I will always check for traffic before deciding I should go or simply stay in Singapore. Very tired of it. Have you tried Tuas causeway?
