Singapore Malaysia Woodlands Checkpoint – 9 HDB Blocks acquired – In 2017, ICA (Immigration & Checkpoints Authority) and SLA (Singapore Land Authority) had jointly announced that an extension of WCP (Woodlands Checkpoint) would be built at the Old Woodlands Town Centre (OWTC).
According to ICA, a study is currently ongoing to determine the optimal design of this WCP extension to clear heavy goods vehicles and motorcycles.
In order to better support this, the Bukit Timah Expressway will be extended and enhanced to channel traffic directly to and from the OWTC (Old Woodlands Town Centre) extension. The immediate and surrounding local road networks will also be upgraded.
ICA has projected that the traffic volume at WCP will have increased by close to 40% by 2050.
This means a daily average of about 400,000 travellers as compared to pre-pandemic levels of about 300,000 travellers in 2019.
While COVID-19 had impacted travel, the full reopening of our land borders from 1 April 2022 has seen arrival volumes already returning to more than 90% of the pre-COVID volume during weekends.
ICA expects daily volumes to soon reach pre-COVID levels, and continue to increase thereafter. If the overall clearance capacity is not increased, the travel time for vehicular traffic could increase by more than 60-70% during peak periods by 2050.
