Oh, damn! This looks bad.
The long weekend just came to an end and many people made their way home yesterday (13th August 2019) after a short getaway. While there was fairly bad traffic for people travelling within Malaysia, nothing will beat the traffic that some had to endure when they were on their way back to Singapore.
Based on a Facebook (FB) page, JB TRACER: Johor Bahru Traffic, Crime & Community Service Report, many people were stuck for over seven hours near the Tuas and Woodlands Checkpoint yesterday.
A netizen wrote,
“From 11pm yesterday (Sunday, 11th August 2019) till 7am today (Monday, 12th August 2019, I’m still stuck in JB.”
The netizen then decided to drop by their acquaintance’s house for a quick nap and shower. After that, they left for Singapore in the afternoon but the traffic was still bad even though they arrived at 2.30pm on Monday.
Another netizen also shared that they were still in Malaysia despite waiting for more than seven hours in the traffic. You can take a look at the screenshot which was shared on the page:
On the other hand, the human traffic at JB CIQ (Johor Bharu Customs, Immigration & Quarantine Complex) also looked quite bad. Here’s a video that was shared on JB TRACER:

Following that, One Motoring’s updates revealed that the huge traffic jam at the Second Link in Tuas and Tuas Checkpoint has subsided. Nevertheless, the route to Johor in Woodlands Causeway seemed to be experiencing traffic meanwhile the road to Woodlands is much better.
Similarly, the traffic jam has subsided at Woodlands Checkpoint (towards BKE), as last recorded by One Motoring, which is the Singaporean Land Transport Authority.
That said, if you’re making your way to Singapore, you may want to check the traffic updates at both checkpoints to ensure that there’s smooth traffic while you’re travelling.
