That stretch of road have lots of heavy vehicles on high speed as it is very wide like a runway. I used it occassionally but becomes very aware of these big beasts when one nearly slammed into me when trying to overtake me heading towards the 2-lane road leading to AYE. sweatdrop.gif

Hope the deceased rest in peace.

Once in a while sure have vehicles running red lights at Tuas, esp from night till early morning.. I alway slow down and look left and right whenever driving across the traffic light junction..

Also look out for blanga workers who like to sit in the middle of the road.. shakehead.gif

Perhaps both drivers were thinking the same that Sunday should see light traffic and let their guards down. shakehead.gif

The roads ard Tuas areas are very dengerous when turning right from small roards to main road. A lot off small roads are not allowed to turn right. They hv to turn left and make a U turn at the red light junction and get to the right side of the main road. A lot of drivers nvr abide the rules and turn right to the opposite side. The main road is very broad and it will take some times to get to the right side. If judgement is no good or the car cannot make a fast dash, thats it. Accident will occur. Cause the main road cars are driving very very fast, shakehead.gif

This place has a lot of lorries and trucks who think that they are F1 drivers.

Even worse than Loyang area.

If I am not wrong, this is the junction outside Epson. (oops...think I can see a bit of Epson in the picture)

Was there recently only...you really need to know this place well to anticipate properly.

To people seaching for a company in this area or new to this area, please do your map work first before going there. Make sure you know roughly where to turn and all that. The road is very broad, if needed just drive more and make a U-turn rather than dashing across.

As Starry had mentioned is true. All the lorries, trucks motorcycles, cars and even busses travelled that road are all F1 drivers. Pls be very very carefule when you are turning from small lane to main roard. Espesically turning RIGHT to main road. Rather drive a bit further down and make U turn at the U turn junction,
