Road Repurposing

Enhancing Active Mobility and Safety in Your Neighbourhoods

As part of the Land Transport Masterplan 2040 (LTMP2040), LTA is working towards a more inclusive land transport system and more pleasant, welcoming and safer streets.

LTA is studying how Singapore’s road infrastructure can better support walking and cycling in neighbourhood centres, so as to create a more liveable and inclusive environment for all. As part of this, possible locations where part of the road can be pedestrianised or converted to create wider footpaths or cycling paths is being explored. A pedestrianised street is similar to a very wide footpath, whereby the road is closed off to vehicles and reserved for pedestrians, bicycles, non-Motorised Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs), and Personal Mobility Aids (PMA). In some instances, where it is safe and feasible to do so, the repurposed roads may also be used for community activities.

Some of these projects will be implemented in two phases to give the public time to experience these changes. In Phase 1, segments of certain roads will be temporarily closed off or narrowed for at least 6 months for commuters to experience and adapt to the proposed scheme. This approach allows LTA to gather feedback and suggestions from the community, so that we may then co-deliver a permanent solution that best meets the community’s needs. Where possible, adjustments will be made to the scheme before it is permanently changed in Phase 2.

We believe that feedback from the community is very important in creating a safer and more inclusive transport environment for all. LTA welcomes you to participate in the surveys for the projects below. More projects will be announced progressively.

Creating safer and more pleasant streets to key amenities and transport nodes

The partial pedestrianisation of Woodlands Ring Road (between Woodlands Drive 71 and Drive 63) is intended to provide a safer and more seamless walking connection for residents to Kampung Admiralty and Admiralty MRT station. With the widened footpaths, pedestrians and cyclists of all ages can walk and cycle more conveniently, safely and comfortably as they make their way to their neighbourhood centre.

Phase 1 – Pedestrianisation of Woodlands Ring Road (Westbound) with bus-only road (Eastbound)

In Phase 1, barriers will be added along Woodlands Ring Road (between Woodlands Drive 71 and Woodlands Drive 63) to close the westbound lane (towards Drive 71) from vehicles. This will create a pedestrianised street and enhance pedestrian safety.

The pedestrianised street will offer seamless connectivity for residents of all ages to and from Kampung Admiralty, Admiralty MRT station and the surrounding residential blocks

The eastbound road (towards Drive 63) will be converted into a bus-only road. Bus services 901M and 912/912A will remain unaffected by the project, and commuters who use these bus services will benefit from a smoother and faster journey via the bus-only road.

Phase 2 – Transition to Permanent Infrastructure

Feedback from the local community will be considered before we transition into phase 2, where permanent infrastructure will be put in place.

Creating a safer and more pleasant pedestrian experience

The widening of the footpath in front of the row of shophouses along Havelock Road (between 715 Havelock Road and 745 Havelock Road) is intended to provide a safer and more comfortable walking experience for all residents and visitors to the area. With the widened footpath, pedestrians and cyclists can more conveniently and safely make their way around the Beo Crescent neighbourhood centre.

Phase 1 – Removal of roadside parking lots along Havelock Road

In Phase 1, roadside parking will be removed and barriers will be used to create more space for a wider footpath. The widened footpath will provide a more comfortable walking experience for residents and visitors, as they walk pass, browse, or wait in front of the shophouses. It will also improve connectivity through the various residential and commercial sections along Havelock Road.

Motorists will find that ample parking is available in the opposite and adjacent multi-story public car parks, which are sheltered and convenient to use.  The lower traffic environment will give everyone a safer and more pleasant experience.
