Holidaymakers who use the Marina Bay Cruise Centre can expect a shorter wait to get their passports checked or collect baggage, under plans to improve facilities and procedures at the centre.

The improvements, in response to problems like immigration bottlenecks and a lack of cabs previously, will be completed in time for the November high season, terminal operator Sats-Creuers said.

Among the plans: a fourth passenger bridge to expedite boarding and disembarking, and enhancements to the baggage handling system at the departure area so that more bags can be processed and faster.

Two more X-ray machines will also be added to the existing six at the arrival screening area.
