Singapore’s ministry of transport has revealed that it will remove motorcycle tolls at the Second Link from January 21, 2019, mirroring the Malaysian government’s move to abolish toll collection for motorcycles at the turn of the new year, Bernama reports.

“We note Malaysia’s removal of motorcycle toll charges at the Second Link. Singapore’s long-standing policy is to match Malaysia’s toll rates,” it was quoted as saying by The Straits Times. Toll charges for motorcycle was SG$0.40 (about RM1.20) at the Tuas Checkpoint for both arrival and departure.
