    Sorry to OT.

    Btw, do we need the white card? It was waived at one point and then it was reinstated... not sure what is the policy now.

    Thanks!

    Clearing still at old complex & you just drive through the New Complex.
    The lanes are very narrow & the layout is really suck.

    It does not matter, Singaporeans will still go to JB whether you need to use the white card or the new complex.

    IIRC, the new complex was built with the revamp of the current bridge in mind. Remember the crooked Bridge design? Singapore side does not agree with the proposal of a new bridge so Malaysia side came out with a alternative (crooked bridge) design during Mahathir reign. When Badawi took over, he scrape the idea completely (thats what makes Mahathir angry with him) but the new complex was already 1/2 way done.
