Road traffic statistics out today

The Traffic Police will reveal the mid-year road traffic situation at a media conference today. Information to be released includes statistics on fatality and injury, as well as which group is the most vulnerable on the road.

A new commendation initiative for road users will also be announced at the event, chaired by the Commander of Traffic Police, Assistant Commissioner Sam Tee.

New private home sales data out today

Data on new private home sales for last month will be released today. Market watchers expect tepid sales as buyers traditionally stay away from the market during the school holidays. As it is, the numbers for May were already quite dismal, with developers moving only 638 units, down 45 per cent from April's level. Compared with the same period last year, sales of new private homes in May were down 57 per cent.
