According to Johor's MB Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi, Johor remains committed to resolving the congestion at its land crossings with Singapore and will continue to work closely with the Federal Government to that end. Among the measures taken, are extending the use of autogates to Singaporeans, increasing the number of motorcycle lines, and merging border control agency counters, he said. "We're all aware that this has been going on for decades." "However, this has not dampened the spirit of the state and federal governments to work together and see that it is resolved," he told the state assembly on Wednesday.

Onn stated that there will be four zones where the counters of relevant agencies at the Johor Causeway will be combined to provide travelers with a single clearance point. "Right now, travelers must stop twice to clear their passports and pay for their Touch 'n Go, but after that, they only need to stop once," he explained. Earlier, Andrew Chen Kah Eng (PH-Stulang) told the state assembly that Singaporean singer Wang Lei had recently expressed his dissatisfaction with the Causeway after spending seven hours there. While efforts had been made to alleviate congestion, Chen stated that further improvements were required or the problem would jeopardize efforts to attract investors to Johor.
