LTA places great emphasis on providing a safe environment for all road users.
We design traffic signs and schemes to:
- Ensure safe and orderly flow of traffic
- Protect pedestrians and motorists at busy intersections
- Reduce the severity and frequency of road accidents
LTA standardises the designs and locations of traffic signs so that they can be read and understood from a glance.
Follow the Signs
Traffic signs and road markings are our primary communication devices to inform the public of laws and regulations, traffic and road conditions and other guiding information.
We rely on our road users to willingly obey our traffic signs.
Know the Schemes
Major Traffic Schemes are in place to help you get to your destination faster. We need your cooperation to ensure a smoother journey for all.
Motorists are allowed to turn left at red signals when it is safe to do so.
The Bus Lane Scheme gives buses priority on the roads. The scheme operates from 7.30am to 8pm on all weekdays and Saturdays, except public holidays.
Motorists must give way to buses exiting the bus lane. The scheme allows buses to pull out of the bus bay easily and continue on their journey without delays.
Motorists entering Woodlands Checkpoint must proceed into Old Woodlands Road or Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) during the restricted hours:
- Mondays to Fridays: 4pm-10pm
- Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays: 10am-10pm
