Starting from 15 February, all foreign-registered cars will pay a Reciprocal Road Charge (RRC) of S$6.40 per entry when entering Singapore via Woodlands Checkpoint or Tuas.

This was announced by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a release on Monday (16 Jan)

On 1 November 2016, Malaysia implemented a Road Charge of RM20 (S$6.40) per entry for non-Malaysia registered cars entering Johor.

Almost RM14 million ($4.48 million) was collected from Singapore-registered vehicles from 1 November to 20 December last year since Malaysia introduced the Road Charge.

Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan had said in Parliament on 9 January that Singapore would match the RM20 road charge imposed by Malaysia.

“We have a long-standing policy of matching any levy, tolls or fees charged by Malaysia for using the road links between Singapore and Malaysia. This is to ensure that Malaysia takes into consideration our response whenever they raise their tolls or levies,” said Khaw.
