SINGAPORE - The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority warned motorists of delays entering Singapore due to heavy traffic at the land checkpoints on Sunday afternoon (Feb 18).

In a Facebook post at 12.50pm, ICA said that there was heavy arrival traffic at both Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints.

"Delays are expected. Travellers are advised to check One Motoring before embarking on their journey," the post added.

ICA had said in a statement earlier this month that there would be longer than usual waiting times at the checkpoints over the Chinese New Year holidays, due to tighter security checks.

In addition, heavy traffic in both directions from Feb 16 - the first day of Chinese New Year - to Feb 20 is expected, it said.
