Motorists passing through the Woodlands Checkpoint on Friday morning (Jan 5) towards Johor were met with heavy traffic, with queues stretching for over two hours.

The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) first warned travellers about the traffic conditions in a Facebook post at 8.15am.
"Woodlands checkpoint is currently experiencing heavy traffic. Travellers are advised to check One Motoring website before embarking on their journey," the post said.
In another Facebook post an hour later, ICA said that traffic at the Woodlands Checkpoint remains heavy.
The authority said that this coincides with the morning peak period and it has deployed more resources to manage the situation.
"Motorists are advised to maintain lane discipline and cooperate with officers on site. Travellers may wish to postpone non-essential travel," the post said.
Many netizens took to social media to post photos of the snaking queues, including Facebook user Joanna Shuck who showed several passengers alighting from their bus to walk to the checkpoint.
A few also noted that cars have since been directed to the immigration clearance lane for lorries.
