Keeping Our Roads Safe

LTA is committed to ensuring the safety and security of motorists and commuters at all times.  We focus on the following areas to make your commute as pleasant and safe as possible.

Increasing Safety and Access for Pedestrians and cyclists

School Zone Signboard   Signboard

Pedestrian safety, especially in schools and private estates, is one of our priorities. Our Traffic Management Department works together with schools to design and install safety devices that provide a safer road environment for students.

In 2013, a new inter-agency committee – Committee on Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety with representatives from the LTA, the Traffic Police and the Education Ministry, was set up to re-examine ways to make Singapore’s roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

Other safety initiatives for pedestrians are:

Raised Zebra Crossing
Green Man Plus
Safety Bollards

Enhancing Road Safety for Motorists

These measures are in place to keep drivers safe:

Advanced Warning Lights
Curve Alignment Markers
Vehicle Impact Guard Rails
Your-Speed-Sign (YSS)

LTA also conducts regular studies on foreign road systems, and integrates their best practices in our new technology road safety initiatives.
