Singapore will match road charge imposed by Malaysia

Tuesday, 10 January 2017


SINGAPORE: Singapore will match the RM20 road charge that Malaysia imposed on Nov 1 last year, said Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan in Parliament.

Khaw also revealed that Singapore-registered vehicles entering Malaysia via Woodlands and Tuas have paid an estimated RM13.9mil (S$4.48mil) in road charges between Nov 1 and Dec 20.

He was replying to Ang Wei Neng (Jurong GRC), who asked for an estimate of road charges paid by Singapore-registered vehicles and if Singapore plans to impose similar charges in the near future.

Details of the matching charge will be announced soon, said Khaw, who added that Singapore has a “long-standing policy of matching any levy, tolls or fees” imposed on vehicles crossing into Malaysia.

“This is to ensure Malaysia takes into consideration our response whenever they raise tolls or introduce a new levy,” he said.
