More bus lanes, special bays for a smoother ride
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will expand two measures that give buses more priority on the roads.
From the middle of October, it will begin works to add 25km of new bus lanes at 13 selected road corridors islandwide, including Sembawang Road, Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 and Bedok North Ave 3. The LTA said the roads selected have sufficiently high numbers of buses plying along them and enough traffic lanes to accommodate the implementation of new bus lanes.
The LTA will also roll out the Mandatory Give-Way to Buses scheme to another 135 bus bays from November. These measures are meant to improve the overall reliability and speeds of buses.
