From February 15, 2017, all foreign-registered cars will have to pay a Reciprocal Road Charge (RRC) of S$6.40 per-entry when they enter Singapore via the Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint.

FROM February 15, 2017, all foreign-registered cars will have to pay a Reciprocal Road Charge (RRC) of S$6.40 per-entry when they enter Singapore via the Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced on its website that the RRC mirrors Malaysia's Road Charge of RM20 per entry for non-Malaysia registered cars entering Johor, which was implemented on November 1, 2016.

The RRC will be collected together with the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP), toll charges and fixed Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) fees upon departure at the Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint.

LTA said it has imposed stiffer penalties on motorists who evade payment of the tolls, fees and charges since August 1, 2016.
