Singapore government delays plan to ban smoky Malaysian vehicles from entering Singapore to 1 July 2014, 13 Feb 2014
Malaysian vehicles with excessive smoke levels will soon be barred from entering Singapore, according to a report from The Star. Initially scheduled to take effect at the start of the year, Singaporean authorities have now decided to delay the implementation of the new rule to July 1, 2014.
The neighbouring country’s National Environment Agency (NEA) has lowered the permissible level of black smoke emitted from a vehicle from the previous 50 HSU (Hartridge Smoke Units) to 40 HSU. As such, private and commercial vehicles that fall foul of the new ruling will be denied entry into the republic. Full story
