We refer to Mr Chan Yuke Weng’s letter “ Traffic chaos outside Lakeside MRT station” (ST Online, 16 July 2014).
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has already installed Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras to deter illegal parking along the stretch of Boon Lay Way, outside Lakeside MRT station.
The locations monitored by CCTVs are clearly demarcated by parking restriction lines as well as signs to remind drivers that they should not park illegally.
In addition, lamp posts and sign posts within the CCTV monitoring zone are painted with a vertical strip in a bright orange colour.
Since the introduction of CCTVs, traffic conditions at this location have improved and we will continue to monitor the situation.
We advise all motorists to adhere to the parking restrictions. Enforcement action will be taken against all illegally parked vehicles within the CCTV enforcement zone.
We thank Mr Chan for his feedback.
