There has been an increase in road works recently.... there was so much digging here n there to lay/maintain underground cables causing lane closures n jams......... but the worst thing is the road reinstatement..... Most were not done properly and caused very bumpy roads..... generally the poor reinstatement are all over the island, but one of the most obvious one i encountered was Somerset rd (near 313)..... ANd there was this HUGE depression when i drive out of prince edward carpark towards ECP city....

To tink that CH 8 just telecast the variety show with Brian Wong working with LTA on the roadworks and showing how they lay the road etc......

Dun you think singapore roads are more comparable to JB roads now? Sometimes i wonder whether are we degrading or is JB upgrading? Been going JB quite alot recently, i got to admit their roads are better looking as compared 10 yrs ago.

Yup, our roads are filled with too many protruding metal covers and joints that jot you whenever you drive through it. Putting on safety belt has another meaning now. If you don't put it on, you will be jotted out from your seat. biggrin.gif

Wow..and LTA wins award for best road
http://news.xin.msn....umentid=5172709

Singapore’s road network is rated the best in the world, in both design and safety.

It received the recognition at the annual Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) awards ceremony held in St Louis, Missouri, on Monday.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) was presented with the Edmund R. Ricker Transportation Safety Council Award for its efforts in improving safety for road users in Singapore.

Only one award is given out in the individual and organisation categories each year.

Past winners of this prestigious international award include the World Bank, and city administrations in America and Australia for their efforts in promoting road safety.

It also clinched the 2011 MIS Asia IT Excellence Award for Best Knowledge Management.

The latest award recognises LTA’s Engineering Project Integration and Collaboration System (EPIC), which facilitates consultation across professional teams for better project integration and decision making.


I guess "safety" doesn't include bumpy roads. laugh.gif

So sorry I missed that episode. However, I like to believe somehow he is not responsible for the poorer workmanship of the road re-instatements around.

By right the gaps should be filled with proper rocks and layers of hard material, before layering the final asphalt in a smooth flat manner.
But many cheat, dump whatever rocks and debris into the hole, and super over compensate the sinking possibility, with a super high hump layer of asphalt!
I hate these humps! LTA never seem to check, or did LTA believe in overcompensating hump-like repair works?

Nowadays there is really a lot of road works going on everywhere, and the road is getting more and more bumpy! Whenever i sit in a taxi, really make me want to "puke"! unimpressed.gif

They might be forced to. I rem many years ago they said they are using some recycled materials to lay the road, not sure if they are still doing that right now.

I believe it is the lack of Foremanship in the industry. Many workers knowing next to nothing about it. Contractors awarded based on pricing alone, or previous track record not updated yet. No one keen to check if the contractor(s) able to employ skilled and knowledgeable Foreman to lead the workers. Just blame on materials/machinery.
