Toll charges lowered at Woodlands Checkpoint and entry fee removed

Land Transport Authority (LTA) has lowered its toll charges at the Woodlands Checkpoint across the board for all vehicle categories in its latest toll revision.

It had announced that Singapore will be revising its toll charges at Woodlands Checkpoint from 1 February 2018 to match Malaysia’s recent removal of toll charges at the Eastern Dispersal Link, which is in line with Singapore’s long-standing policy of matching Malaysia’s toll rates.

It stated that Singapore’s toll charges for all vehicles (except motorcycles) leaving Singapore through Woodlands Checkpoint will be reduced, and toll charges for all vehicles (except motorcycles) entering Singapore via Woodlands will be removed.

It noted that there are no changes to the toll charges at Tuas Checkpoint.

In a statement released on Friday (5 January), the authority advised motorist to ensure there is sufficient value in their Autopass cards before driving through the checkpoints to minimise inconvenience.

“It is the responsibility of motorists to pay all required tolls, fees and charges using the payment machines located at the immigration booths,” it stressed.

LTA stated that motorists who evade payment of the tolls, fees and charges are liable to pay a composition sum of $50, while repeat offenders will have to pay $100. Motorists who do not pay the composition sum may be charged in court and are liable to a fine not exceeding S$1,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months for the first offence.
