Singapore is a built-up city state with limited land space. To cater for growth, LTA needs to efficiently integrate land use for transport planning. One of the solutions is to expand our underground road network.
Besides being built around a densely developed urban environment, our road tunnels need to cater for high traffic volume, peak hour congestion and multiple entrances and exits. These pose challenges to traffic and incident management including tunnel emergencies, and planned and unplanned tunnel closures.
The Intelligent Transport Systems Operations Control Centre (ITS OCC) works around the clock to monitor traffic and manage incidents on our expressways and road tunnels using the i-Transport and various ITS.
