Commuters experience four-hour jam at Causeway
SINGAPORE: Commuters were stuck in a jam at the Causeway for over four hours on Saturday. Since the biometric fingerprint scanning system was introduced by Malaysia on June 1, complaints have surfaced over longer waiting times to clear the checkpoints. A picture taken from a traffic camera at the Woodlands Checkpoint showed a long line of cars waiting to get into Johor Bahru. And the queue stretched all the way up the BKE on the Singapore side. Motorists said the situation was made worse by the increase in traffic due to the school holidays. Daily commuters working here and heading home to Malaysia said their travel time is now much longer.
