With respect to Mr Edward Lim Yew Sih’s feedback “New bicycle path demolished before being open to public” (Straits Times Online, 31 Dec) we admit to an error in coordination on our part.
LTA works to coordinate infrastructure works in an estate to minimise disruption to residents. This is very important as we are in the midst of a substantial expansion of many commuter, pedestrian and cycling initiatives. In the case of the stretch of new cycling path along Yishun Central, we should have ensured more effective coordination internally to have identified early the eventual necessity of a new bus stop for the same stretch.
This is an isolated incident. Nevertheless, we have used this incident as an example to further improve coordination between different projects to prevent inconvenience and disruption.
We thank Mr Lim for his feedback.
