Heavy traffic flow on Hari Raya Haji – ICA Singapore

Expect heavy traffic on Hari Raya Haji. Travellers advised to plan ahead.

Travellers can expect heavy traffic flow during the Hari Raya Haji celebration on September 12 through the land checkpoints at Tuas and Woodlands, according to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of Singapore.

“Travellers can expect heavy departure traffic on Friday, 9 September while arrival traffic is expected to be particularly heavy on Monday, 12 September,” ICA said in a statement on Wednesday, September 7.

Hari Raya Haji, or known otherwise as the Festival of Sacrifice or Great Day of Sacrifice, is a worldwide celebration of Muslims that happens 70 days after Ramadan and lasts for four days.

The festival signals the end of haj, the pilgrimage of Muslims to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

 

NewsNarratives (formerly Wired Correspondence) aims to become an independent and progressive online magazine that will focus on underreported social issues and human interest stories in the Philippines and elsewhere written in narrative, longform journalism. We intend to extensively cover stories of people and communities whose struggles are left undercovered, unheard, or unaddressed by the governments or other institutions. But as a progressive publication, we focus less on what these institutions failed to do for them, rather focus more on what can still be done. Then again, it’s not all about the failures and struggles. We also want good stories that inspire and give hope. So, we will feature stories of people who won life’s struggles in hopes of learning from them and of ordinary individuals who are contributing extraordinary work whether to their family or community—yes, the many unsung heroes in our society. We aim to help and inspire people through our storytelling, by producing content that targets the heart to feel and provokes the brain to act on it—in a good way. We start all these in our own backyard, the Philippines, with a dream of pursuing elsewhere.
