A three-month trial traffic diversion scheme will be implemented from September 15 to help ease the traffic congestion problem at Woodlands Checkpoint.
Under the scheme, cars will no longer be allowed to turn right into the checkpoint from Woodlands Centre Road from 4pm onwards on weekdays, and between 10am and 10pm on weekends and public holidays.
But this will not apply to school buses, SBS and SMRT buses.
This is on top of the current all-day restriction for heavy vehicles and motorcycles.
During these times, motorists can use of alternative routes via old Woodlands Road or the Bukit Timah Expressway.
It is hoped that the move can help ease congestion and shorten travelling time.
The public can contact the Land Transport Authority at 1800-255-5528 for more enquiries about the trial scheme. – CNA /ls
