Five residential estates, in Bedok, Bukit Merah, Jurong West, Marine Parade and Yishun, will have new road safety features as part of the Silver Zone pilot programme to make roads safer for the elderly.
These estates have a large population of seniors and a relatively high accident rate involving seniors, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a statement last week.
A series of road safety improvements, such as special road signs and markings to identify the Silver Zones, as well as traffic calming measures to slow down motorised traffic and enable motorists to keep a better look-out for pedestrians, will soon be introduced in the estates.
Bukit Merah and Jurong West will be the first two area to begin works this month, which are expected to be completed by October and December respectively.
