The republic will do away the 40 Singapore cents toll on motorcyclists at the Tuas checkpoint, in line with Malaysia's decision to abolish it next year at Linkedua (Second Link).
Quoting a spokesperson of the Ministry of Transport, the Straits Times reported that the ministry has noted Malaysia's plans to remove tolls for bikers at the Second Link from Jan 1.
"Should Malaysia reduce or remove the motorcycle toll charges at the Second Link, Singapore will match Malaysia's revised tolls rates," the spokesman was quoted as saying.
The ministry said that Singapore's long-standing policy is to match Malaysia's toll rates.
"This reflects the shared nature of the Second Link," the ministry spokesperson said.
When tabling Budget 2019 in the Dewan Rakyat on Friday, Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng announced that toll for motorcyclists plying the Linkedua in Johor would be abolished from Jan 1, 2019.
According to Johor Immigration Department director Rohaizi Bahari, on average 40,000 motorcyclists use the Linkedua each day.
Currently, bikers are paying an RM1.10 toll on the Malaysian side of the Linkedua.
