If Malaysia increases or introduces new tolls at the Causeway, the Singapore Government will follow suit, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday, in response to reports that Malaysia is raising charges.

It has been reported that Malaysia's Works Ministry will increase toll charges for all vehicles except motorcycles entering Johor from Singapore via the Johor Baru Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex at the Causeway.

Reports also added that Malaysia will impose a new Causeway toll for all outbound vehicles entering Singapore from Johor.

The two changes will reportedly kick in on Friday.
