LTA and the Environment

We take pride in balancing sound business practices with sustainable environmental programmes. Going beyond complying with environmental legislations, LTA takes proactive steps to monitor, evaluate and improve our environmental management practices.

This includes the implementation of an Environmental Management System for construction projects since 2007. The system ensures that environmental protection measures are incorporated into strategic decisions and operations to promote sustainable development.

Minimising Noise Pollution

A noise barrier barricades a surrounding HDB flat

We work closely with the National Environment Agency (NEA) to ensure that residents and businesses are not unduly affected by noise from LTA construction works.

Noise levels are constantly monitored and kept within NEA’s permissible levels.

Deploying barriers and noise enclosures that minimise construction noise, LTA also schedules works wherever feasible to reduce disturbance to the public.

Innovative solutions are also being explored to mitigate noise generated by construction works. The Flat Wedge Noise Barrier is an LTA-NUS innovation that has received national recognition. Compared to the existing straight-edge noise barrier design, this new design feature leads to a 30% noise reduction. The innovation won a merit award at the Ministry for National Development Research & Development Award in June 2017.
