SINGAPORE - A massive jam formed on both sides of the Tuas Checkpoint on Tuesday (July 26), earning the ire of motorists and delaying several bus services.

The gridlock apparently began in the morning. Facebook user Titi Rawan shared a picture at 7.45am of the traffic standstill, which she said "begins even before the crossing bridge to the checkpoint".

Bus operator SBS Transit tweeted at 5.45pm that services 182, 182M, 192 and 193 were delayed along Tuas West Drive due to the heavy traffic.

Traffic camera pictures on the One Motoring website showed the jams on the Tuas and Johor sections were still present at 8pm.
