SINGAPORE- The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday that should Malaysia raise existing tolls or introduce a new one at the Causeway and Second Link, the Singapore Government will match its tolls to those set by Malaysia.

The LTA was responding to media reports that Malaysia's Works Ministry will increase a toll charge for all vehicles except motorcycles entering Johor from Singapore through the Johor Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) complex at the Causeway. It will also impose a new Causeway toll for outbound vehicles entering Singapore from Johor.

According to Malaysian media reports, the two new changes will kick in on Friday.

In the statement, an LTA spokesman said it has always been the Singapore Government's practice to peg Singapore's tolls to match that of Malaysia's.
