Traffic is pretty heavy. Please take note. I drove in on Thursday afternoon and it took me 45 minutes to clear the SG/MY Main Link/Woodlands customs (some delay at SG customs but largely on the bridge, through the snaking road into MY customs and at the MY customs itself).

I think those who drove in today (Main Link and 2nd Link) also faced traffic. So, golfers, holiday-makers, JB-shoppers etc, please plan ahead for your journey into JB.

Hopefully the traffic isn't so bad on Saturday and Sunday (since many may have traveled back on Thursday/Friday) but it's best to be cautious nonetheless.

If one take Woodlands aka 1st link, one has the chance to decide if need to U-turn if jam is bad...becos can see while on BKE....

On the other hand, with 2nd link, it is like going for green which is elevated...cannot see the situation unless after SG checkpoint and if there is , too late liao.

But since there is a game, be safe..go early...since it is 29th, I think should be safe goin into JB.....I think coming into SG after game mite be touchy

don mean to be wet blanket...but just speaking fm experience....

Yap, prepare to get stuck for hours. I maybe thinking of heading north instead of south after the Starhill game.

Agreeable with Roystonn, eventhough the jam is longer ...but its moving fast and also its cheaper ! worst case senario i've encounter is 45 mins on 1st link and 2.5hrs on 2nd link !

cheers,

Jam at 2nd link for 100m = jam at causeway for 500m... No matter what, Causeway will still be more efficient with many counters in operations. And it's definitely cheaper.

Will update you guys on the traffic condition when I come back later this afternoon.

Onemotoring's cameras show relatively clear traffic at Woodlands and Tuas.

Go! Go! Go! Smile

Drivers, please take note.

One of our cars traveling from JB to SG was stopped by the traffic police today (en route back to SG). Traffic police are increasing their efforts because they know it's a long weekend, school hols etc and there are lots of SGians coming into Malaysia.

Please drive carefully, safely and follow traffic rules.

To add on....

Reasons for the policemen to wait at the hunting ground:

- Never put on seat belts
- No right turn (turning right towards SHELL petrol kiosk direction at last traffic junction before reaching kastam)
- No left turn (turning left into kastam from the directions of pelangi towards SHELL petrol kiosk)

Good luck.

I came back by 2nd link yesterday, 1½ hour jam at the JB side, smooth as silk on the SG side.

Most of us came back by first link yesterday night. Smooth traffic on both side. Surprised with the MY clearance yesterday...

Normally during long weekends 2nd link is worse than causeway. All the convoys to m'sia travel there as it is easier to wait and regroup if lost.
