Singapore's Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said on Tuesday that it will hold an operational exercise at the Woodlands checkpoint early on Thursday morning.

ICA said in a press release that the exercise is meant to "test and validate its emergency plans and procedures at the checkpoints". The authorities will hold the operation between 1.30 am and 3 am on Thursday. During the exercise, ICA officers will perform enhanced security checks on selected travellers and vehicles.

However, ICA has advised the travellers using the checkpoint not to be alarmed by this. Signage will be placed at prominent locations to inform travellers of the exercise. "We seek travellers' understanding and cooperation," ICA added.
