We refer to Mr Goh Kian Huat’s letter “Use exchange rate to adjust Causeway tolls” (TODAY, 30 Jan 2015).
The toll rates at the Causeway and Second Link are based on the prevailing exchange rate between the Singapore Dollar and the Malaysian Ringgit at the time the tolls are implemented.
To avoid confusion for motorists, toll rates are not adjusted regularly according to exchange rate fluctuations.
We would also like to clarify that the toll rate for cars entering Malaysia via the Causeway is RM 9.70 and toll rate for cars leaving Singapore is correspondingly set at S$3.80.
We thank Mr Goh for his feedback.
