    Singapore side tends to jam up more often now due to the extra security checks.

    It's already constructed and you can see it from one of the toilet at City Square.

    Actually, the level of development in JB is going up and you can see more Singaporeans living and working in JB.

    SG side check car boot, passports & others
    Msia side chop & go without checking passports & car boot. Msia cars just drive past & go all the way

    So who is more efficient.

    Tonight I came back from JB, Msia side jamed until the Traffic Police HQ wasting 1 hr 8 minutes to clear ICA.
    SG side no jamed just take 16 minutes to clearing ICA.
    This scenario use to happen time to time.

    Today during noon time, it take me one and a half hour to clear both Singapore and Malaysia custom. The traffic back flow starting from J.B. side and ended at the BKE. Many cars break down alone the way.

    When back to Singapore around 6pm, it only take me about 30 min. to clear both custom.

    I took some photo during the traffic jam to kill my time, hope to post and share in the forum soon.

    Don't get the wrong impression based on what you read in the news. The report yesterday, was narrowly focused on the early morning on working day when JB workers rush to Sing to work.

    Listen to the people who ACTUALLY went through the whole process. Don't listen to the armchair imaginators. I experienced the whole process (bus transport) and so I know, who is talking rubbish and who is not.

    If the journey is by bus and not at purposely-chosen-ridiculous-peak-periods then it is smooth, easy and fast.
