We refer to the letter "Orchard zone should have parking for m-cyclists" (The Straits Times, 26 February 2008).
There are currently 4,500 motorcycle parking lots within the Central Business District (CBD). As many motorcyclists in the CBD are on short working trips, building owners are encouraged to allow short term parking for motorcycles in their loading/unloading bays and driveways. This makes it more convenient for the motorcyclists as well as reduces the potential obstruction to smooth traffic and pedestrian flow.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is working with various building owners to facilitate this outcome. In addition, LTA is also studying the need for mandatory provision of motorcycle parking spaces within the new building developments.
