    Heavy rains expose deadly section of PIE

    With the weather turning slightly wetter in the recent days, this part of the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) is turning out to be quite deadly. Shared by the 'good samaritans' of SG Road Vigilante, someone has been recording from his/her apartment some of the accidents that happened at the Jalan Anak Bukit flyover towards the direction of Jurong. As we can all see, all the four incidents had the drivers losing control of the rear of their vehicles as they crest over the left hand turn. Some of drivers looked like they oversped but not every one was doing so. We guessed these drivers all lifted off the accelerator abruptly and/or had bad tyres at the rear while negotiating the turn, causing their vehicles to go into oversteer. LTA has made this corner less treacherous than before in the recent years but it still does seem to catch quite a few drivers out. Other than having good tyres, our advice when approaching the corner is to maintain your speed and to obviously keep to the speed limit. P.S. this corner does remind us of the infamous corner, Eau Rouge of the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Watch the clip and see how cars go off the corner as they lose the rear of their cars in that deadly turn.
  2. Spotted on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page is this amusing photo of a motorbike's number plate. According to them, this was taken on 1st of July 2020 at Bukit Batok West Edge and the bike in question is a Yamaha Aerox. We have no idea why would someone flout the law to do this. To improve aerodynamics? To make the bike look bigger than it is? Or to make it harder to be identifed by the Traffic Police's camera and Traffic Police wannabes on SG Road Vigilante? What do you all think?
  3. Another Toyota Vios has gotten into an accident similar to the white 2nd generation example that went viral few weeks back on 23 March. Thanks to an unknown vehicle's in-car camera, we can see that this black first generation Vios lost it as it crossed the metal expansion strip that joins different sections of the Anak Bukit Flyover on the PIE. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's facebook page, the car seemed like it was speeding in the drizzle when the mishap happened. Check out the lorry driver's good reaction and evasive skills in avoiding the Vios! The Vios came to a stop on lane 1 with a Prius curiously avoiding it causally. For those who were wondering was that a Police bike on lane 3, it wasn't. Watch the full video and let us know what you think in the comment box below! 1.mp4
  4. SINGAPORE - Motor group Tan Chong is shutting down its Nissan showroom in Bukit Timah after being there for nearly four decades. The last motor facility in the area, the showroom was opened in 1982. The home-grown motor group, listed in Hong Kong, said it is closing its showroom because of "falling footfall", referring to declining number of customers visiting the Bukit Timah address. It will instead focus on its two other showrooms in Ubi and Leng Kee, sites of Singapore's two "motor belts". Mr Ron Lim, head of sales and marketing at Tan Chong Motor, said: "We review our operations from time to time to ensure that our resources are optimised. In line with the reduction in COE quotas, we have seen a fall in showroom traffic at Bukit Timah and we have decided to consolidate Nissan's showroom operations at Leng Kee and Ubi. "Our service centre at Bukit Timah will continue to serve customers. "

    Bukit Brown Saga ....

    CNA news report: Decision to construct road at Bukit Brown wasn't easy: Tan Chuan-Jin By Hetty Musfirah | Posted: 19 March 2012 2223 hrs SINGAPORE: Minister of State for National Development Tan Chuan-Jin said the decision to construct the road at Bukit Brown cemetery has not been an easy one. Writing in his Facebook page after a discussion with stakeholders on Monday evening, Mr Tan said it is understandable that the decision to proceed with the construction has caused disappointment to those who want to conserve Bukit Brown. While authorities have not been able to fully accommodate all wishes, many of the views have been taken into consideration. For instance, the decision to embark on a serious documentation of the affected graves was a result of advice received from the Heritage Society. He said the Land Transport Authority had also factored in feedback in its design of the road to minimise impact to the cemetery. Mr Tan said as documentation work on the cemetery continues, authorities are also working with interested stakeholders on public outreach to commemorate the history and heritage of Bukit Brown. - CNA/fa Why can't they just build a 'suspension bridge' accross..... San Francisco got their suspension bridge, Japan have one, China has the longest suspension bridge in the world and many countries does have their very own suspension bridges. Singapore should have one too .... The only one I remember are short one accross Kallang River from Oasis to Tanjong Rhu and the SAFTI.

    Bukit Batok MP David Ong Resigns

    Bukit Batok MP David Ong resigns, citing personal reasons People’s Action Party (PAP) politician David Ong is resigning as the Member of Parliament for Bukit Batok, and from his party, citing personal reasons. A by-election will be held for the single-seat ward, said the Prime Minister’s Office in a statement on Saturday afternoon. Mr Ong entered politics in the 2011 General Election and was elected as one of the MPs for Jurong GRC. In the 2015 General Election, his ward was carved out as a single seat and saw a three-way fight between Mr Ong, Singapore Democratic Party candidate Sadasivam Veriyah, and independent Samir Salim Neji. Mr Ong took 73 per cent of the vote, above the national average of 69.9 per cent.
  15. http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/hillview-flyover-to-help-ease-bukit-timah-road-traffic Hillview flyover to help ease Bukit Timah Road traffic Construction for Hillview flyover started in the second half of 2011. Motorists can start using it from 8am on Dec 27. It is part of LTA's road improvement project to enhance parts of Upper Bukit Timah Road and Woodlands Road. ST PHOTO: AZIZ HUSSIN PUBLISHED3 HOURS AGO The new Hillview flyover in Upper Bukit Timah Road will open this Sunday. Motorists going to Woodlands from the city, or vice-versa, will be able to use the dual two-lane flyover to bypass a stretch of Upper Bukit Timah Road between Chestnut Drive and Jalan Asas. The flyover provides an alternative route that will redistribute traffic from existing ground-level junctions at Dairy Farm Road and Hillview Road, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday. Construction for the 700m-long flyover started in the second half of 2011. Motorists can start using it from 8am on Dec 27. The LTA has advised motorists heading towards Dairy Farm Road, Hillview Road and Jalan Asas to continue to use the ground-level roads, and not the flyover, to reach their destinations. The Hillview flyover is the second one to be completed along the corridor this year. In April, the Bukit Panjang flyover was opened along a stretch of Upper Bukit Timah Road and Woodlands Road. The viaduct allows motorists to bypass the intersection of Choa Chu Kang Road, Upper Bukit Timah Road, Woodlands Road and Bukit Panjang Road . The two flyovers are part of a larger infrastructure project, which also includes widening parts of Upper Bukit Timah Road and Woodlands Road to improve overall traffic flow in the corridor. "With the enhancement of this key arterial road corridor serving the north-western part of Singapore, motorists travelling to and from Bukit Panjang and Choa Chu Kang residential estates, as well as the Kranji and Mandai industrial estates, will enjoy a better transport experience," the LTA said. Mr Balasupramaniam, 69, a retiree, welcomes the new flyover. He said: "During the peak hours, the traffic along Upper Bukit Timah Road can be quite congested." He added that motorists heading to Woodlands would enjoy a faster drive with the flyover, as they do not have to mix with traffic that is turning into the condominiums in the area, such as along Hillview Road.

  17. Involved a L300 and Union gas lorry. RIP. Jam about 1km from accident site. Drive safe bros.
  18. Anyone with review for this workshop??
  19. Visited Tomo-Ya food trading to buy some food stuff recently. They are a wholesale supplier, but they allow walk-ins. There is no price-list or catalogue, so you have to go online to check out what you want to buy and tell them when you get there. Their staff will go into a cold room to get the frozen stuff for you. Quite an interesting experience. Here are two videos. Driving - how to get there from the PIE exit (Bukit Batok East Ave 3) Here is what we bought.
  20. Elderly residents in Bukit Merah View can now stroll around with greater ease of mind due to enhanced road safety measures. The estate is the first of five to benefit from the Land Transport Authority's Silver Zone programme, which aims to make roads safer for elderly pedestrians. Features like enlarged centre dividers that allow for two-stage crossing are introduced. The speed limit in such zones has also been reduced to 40kmh wherever possible. Cars entering Silver Zones will see signs informing them of such zones, along with three rumble strips on the road to inform motorists to slow down. Other traffic features aimed at slowing down traffic, like chicanes - gentle curves along sections of roads - and lanes with reduced width have also been installed to ensure that cars do not speed along roads with high senior use. Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Health Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim said at the launch event on Saturday that seniors are "over-represented" in traffic accidents, and that the situation must be improved. He noted that 40 per cent of all pedestrian fatalities and 20 per cent of pedestrian injuries involved seniors. Dr Faishal, however, cautioned that road safety does not end with these silver zones and that road safety is the "shared responsibility" of all road users. The Silver Zones in Jurong West, Yishun and Bedok will be completed by the first quarter of 2015, and Marine Parade by first quarter of 2016. The five estates were chosen for their high senior population and relatively higher accident rates involving seniors.

  21. Today an accident occurred in front of me. I did not witness the collision as my eyes were not looking in front at the specific moment. Heard tires screeching, bang, looked up and saw the post dragging of the 2 cars. Taxi uncle was pointing his finger furiously, seemingly angry at the carelessness of the avante driver. I believe there were no serious injury involved and continued my way. (Youtube disabled the audio due to the songs playing from my radio)
  22. From CNA - seems like home made bomb... KUALA LUMPUR: At least 14 people were injured, one seriously, after an explosion in front of a pub at Sun Complex in Jalan Bukit Bintang at about 4.20am on Thursday (Oct 9), Bernama reported. The explosion is believed to have resulted from a homemade bomb, the news agency reported on its Twitter account. Berita Harian Malaysia reported that police confirmed among those injured are Singaporean, Thai and Chinese tourists. The newspaper said initial police investigations indicated that the explosion was targeted towards the seriously injured victim. The Star reported that the injured were aged between 22 and 40 and included two women. They have been sent to Hospital Kuala Lumpur and the nearby Tung Shin Hospital. At least four cars were hit by the explosion, according to The Star. The report said that the explosion came from two devices placed underneath two cars parked in the area - one of which was believed to be an unexploded grenade. The Star reported that the two explosive objects were thrown at the scene from the second floor of a building.
  23. Reminds me of NASA spending millions to develop a pen that could be used in space, while the Russians used pencils! http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/transport/story/height-sensors-go-bukit-timah-road-warn-drivers-tall-vehicles-2014092 Height sensors go up in Bukit Timah Road to warn drivers of tall vehicles By Christopher Tan SINGAPORE - Sensors that warn drivers of tall vehicles that they cannot pass under an overhead structure will be tested along Upper Bukit Timah. When the system senses an approaching vehicle that is too tall, it will start flashing a visual warning to alert the driver that his vehicle may hit the structure. The Land Transport Authority (LTA), which set up the system, said it will try this out for six months and gauge its effectiveness before rolling it out to more locations. The LTA said incidents involving vehicles hitting overhead structures are relatively low but added that a damaged overhead road structure can pose grave danger to all road users.

  25. The Anak Bukit Flyover in Bukit Timah will be the first road in Singapore to get permanent noise barriers. Construction of the barriers - measuring 6m in height and 225m in length - began yesterday and will be completed in October, bringing some relief to nearby residents who have complained about noise pollution. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday that this is part of a trial to assess the effectiveness of such barriers in reducing traffic noise. It will also finish installing similar structures along the West Coast Highway near Block 44, Telok Blangah Drive, by the middle of next year. The new flyover being built along Braddell Road near Block 138, Bishan Street 12, will also get the barriers some time in 2016. These three locations were selected based on their high traffic volumes and noise levels, explained the LTA yesterday. The barriers will cost about $3.8 million in total, a spokesman added. Jurong GRC MP Halimah Yacob had raised the issue of noise in the Anak Bukit Flyover's vicinity as early as 2012, when residents voiced concerns over the widening of the road - part of the recent expansion of the Pan-Island Expressway. "As the carriageways will come closer to the adjacent (condominium) Sherwood Towers... I asked the LTA whether they could put up noise barriers," Madam Halimah told The Straits Times. "I was really very glad when they accepted the idea... given our very compact environment where living spaces jostle side by side with busy roads, I would think that this would be a necessary feature to mitigate noise and provide a better living environment." The barriers are made of a combination of transparent and absorptive panels. The latter are lined internally with rock wool, a material commonly used to absorb sound. Sherwood Towers residents whom The Straits Time spoke to yesterday said noise had been a long-time problem, and that it often gets "quite noisy" at night. Mr Liu San, a 49-year-old chef at a restaurant in Bukit Timah Plaza beside the condominium, has been living at Sherwood Towers for more than 20 years. "If they really help to reduce the noise, that will be good," he said of the barriers. "I've seen similar sound walls in European countries." Others said they were fed up waiting for a solution, while some were resigned to having to live with noise, even after the barriers come up. Retiree Chan Heng Wah, 72, who has lived in the area for four years, said: "We are surrounded by traffic on all four sides. There is no way to block all the noise." The LTA said it would monitor how well the barriers work before considering a "targeted islandwide implementation programme". http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/transport/story/bukit-timah-have-first-road-noise-barriers-20140813
