Singapore reduces toll charges for Tuas checkpoint at off-peak hours

From April 1, Singapore will be reducing the toll charges for all vehicles (with the exception of motorcycles) leaving and entering the country through the Tuas Checkpoint during the off-peak hours.

Previously, the round-trip fee for cars passing through the Tuas Checkpoint was S$6.40.  

It will be reduced to S$2.60 during the off-peak period,  10am to 3pm, and 11pm to 5am daily. This translates to S$3.80 (more than 85 percent) in savings.

As for heavy-goods vehicles, they will be charged S$4 for return trips during off-peak periods, as compared to S$29.40 previously.

According to a statement released by the Land Transport Authority on Monday, Apr 2, peak period tolls — which apply from 5am to 10am and 3pm to 11pm — will also be adjusted for changes in exchange rates. 

"The reduction in toll charges at the Second Link is in line with Singapore's long-standing policy of matching Malaysia's toll adjustments," LTA said.
