    Default Custom Lane for bike with panniers



    Hi need info on custom lanes for big bikes with panniers. A friend mentioned that lane 1 and 2 is for bigger bikes at woodlands checkpoint. What about Tuas? Googled but no info on this topic.

    Thanks in advance.

    For Tuas, manual lane u got to go to the back last 2 lanes ( Left n right ). For biometric lane, go to the first lane. Hope this helps. Just for your info, if the manual last 2 lane closed, just stop your bike infront and ask the officer to open the lane for you to cross. I always do that as I dun want to risk on smaller lanes.

    Same route as you leave Singapore. Manual lane the last 2 counter ( Left or right ). Biometric lane first counter. I only go via Tuas. Tried woodlands once and too tight for comfort. So no woodlands for me.

    ya. One of my friend lost his balance and tip over his brand new BMW RT at woodlands. I dun understand our LTA scholar thinking. Build such a small lane. They think everyone ride small bike meh.

    4 SEPT 2016 8pm. i was one of the thousands bikers who were stuck at our woodland checkpoint. why??? "they" closed the whole section of the automated lanes. THEY should know that people tend to return home sunday evening in the drove. and then people tend to go work next day is monday. whats worse, there was no information that they closed the lanes and only 3 manual lanes were open . whats even worse no apologies for the breakdown/ inconvenience / long waiting time.

    At least those road site repairs, the contractors put sign offering apologies. our ICA seem to think we let you in here already good what. want apologies somemore. it lets me to think there is no compassion at all.

    i think ica will say wont bother, you dun go in even better for them .
    why should they make it easier for us to travel . unless maybe we start paying 20 sgd per entry ?

    I once wen in by wdlands chqpoint thru the biometric lane n i tink bike wif side pannier will have difficulty goin thru. But saw mostly go thru manual lane in woodlands but I still tink its a tight fit.
    Lately i tink its gonna b more difficult bike wif pannier to go in via woodlands as Jb chqpoint are buildin up some sort of barrier in between the each lane. Even w/o pannier its already a tight fit. So i tink future wont b able too.

    Is there such a thing? Woodland has been narrow and a nightmare for bikers. With horde of cubs coming in and out everyday, there is not much real estate for bikes with big pannier.

    When go to JB via causeway, there are 3 motorcycle lanes when you reached the JB custom. First lane on your right , go to the first counter ( designated for bike with pannier) . Center lane and right side lane, go to last counter of the lane. ( designated for bike with pannier).

    When coming back to Sg, JB custom got 2 lanes for motorcycle, Right side or left side lane. First counter for left side lane and last counter for right side lane.

    I was told by the JB custom security staff when was there. Do updates when you got new info.

    I went by tuas this morning on a gsa full original panniers. Has no problems inwards. Coming out was a little shock at the singapore side.. lane very narrow and kerb in between very high...

    Still managed to clear without drama. Note that the side stand cannot be extended while in lane cos the kerb is blocking...
