Woodlands Causeway & Tuas Second Link Traffic
According to statistics, more than 300k people and 50k vehicles are travelling across Woodlands Causeway each day.
Most of them are Malaysians who work in Singapore so they need to head to Singapore early in the morning and return back to Malaysia after work.
This leads to massive traffic jam especially at 7-9am on the road entering Woodlands and after 6pm on the road heading Johor Bahru.
Causeway and Tuas Second Link are both congested during weekends and festive seasons such as Chinese New Year, Christmas, Hari Raya and Deepavali because both Singaporeans and Malaysians are travelling over for vacations.
If you wish to travel in these periods, do check the traffic conditions before getting on the road.
