New speed limits for 65 roads in Western Singapore


New Speed Limits for 65 Stretches of Roads in Western Part of Singapore
The Traffic Police (TP) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) are pleased to announce the completion of the comprehensive road speed limit review for the Western part of Singapore.
Following the review, 65 stretches of roads in areas such as Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang, Jurong, Tuas, Upper Bukit Timah and West Coast will have their speed limits revised with effect from 6 January 2006.
Please see Annex A for the list of roads with the revised speed limits.
This is the final phase of the nationwide speed limit review which started in April 2005. (Please see Annex B for information on the island-wide speed limit review.)
A total of 247 stretches of roads in Singapore have had their speed limits increased since the start of the review.
Responsibility of Road Users
Speeding remains one of the main causes of accidents. Driving or riding beyond the stipulated speed limits increases the likelihood of serious injuries in the event of an accident .
With the new speed limits of the roads, motorists should continue to exercise their judgment and adjust their speeds accordingly where necessary, to ensure their safety and that of other road users.
Life is precious. Use the roads responsibly. Together, we can make our roads safer.
