We refer to Mr Jason Tan's letter, "Two suggestions to ease traffic congestion" (The Straits Times, 7 February 2011).
Since the start of construction of the new Sports Hub and closure of Stadium Road, we have been monitoring closely the traffic situation along Mountbatten Road. Last month, we introduced a new yellow box to assist vehicles from Stadium Boulevard turning into Mountbatten Road .
We noted that there is some traffic weaving movements along segments of this stretch of Mountbatten Road. We will be introducing additional schemes to readjust the road markings and realign the road kerbs to help improve the overall traffic flow in the area.
We will continue to review the traffic conditions in the area and implement new improvement measures where necessary.
We thank Mr Tan for his feedback.
