with the GREAT CAUSEWAY JAM. From the photo, it looks like a chain of sparkling diamonds stretched beside the railway tracks on the right hand side.
It is a happening without fail whenever there is a long weekend in Singapore.
Especially during the Singapore National Day Holidays that produces a long week-end, thousands of Singaporeans will make their way into Malaysia as the exchange rate is almost 2.40 to 1.
It means the malls and restaurants and hotels will be packed with hordes of Singaporeans chirping, "Cheap, cheap, cheap."
That photo is copied from this site that shows the traffic camera on the Causeway. This shot was copied at 0:30am and I don't expect the traffic to ease untill at least 2:00am.
My wife and I had left our home at about 6:30pm as we thought the traffic would not be too bad to get back to Singapore but once we turned left from the Tebrau Highway to approach the JB CIQ, we knew the jam was going to be horrendous. The entire stretch of about 2km before the JB CIQ was already jammed and we decided to return home by making another left turn further up and go via the Serene Park area.
JB this evening was turned into traffic chaos as some motorists were shocked at the terrible jams.
But I don't believe building that CROOKED BRIDGE will solve the traffic woes between JB and Singapore; maybe just reduce the risk of accidents on those hairpin bends on the JB side.
