Recommended Posts

I have ever driven in many countries, short few days like Aus, CHN, Indonesia, long few months or years like Malaysia, Thai, UAE, Oman, Saudi etc, never encountered so many road works Jam like Singapore [:(]

Why?

As the topic, I belive every Singapore Motorirt has the same feeling,

I have ever driven in many countries, short few days like Aus, CHN, Indonesia, long few months or years like Malaysia, Thai, UAE, Oman, Saudi etc, never encountered so many road works Jam like Singapore [:(]

Why?

 

 

Those countries never do roadworks already the road conditions like shit. Try the Malaysian B roads.

At least here they do a complete resurface every now and then. But recently Orchard road near centrepoint is really bad. Like Malaysian kampung roads.

i exit eng neo avenue each day on way home. unfortunately eng neo avenue is shared road for drivers heading towards upper bt timah as well as those heading towards city like me. the jam has been unbearable of late and it was because the west bound route at sixth avenue is having road works and so the west bound drivers are clogging up eng neo ave.

May I attempt an answer to this.

 

"To keep small and medium size contractors alive"

 

They can't take on big projects because of the constraint of their resources. So, govt needs to throws out bit size projects to keep them afloat
