New Speed Limits for 27 Stretches in Northeast

The Traffic Police (TP) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) have completed the comprehensive road speed limit review for the north-eastern region of Singapore.
Following the review, 27 road sections in areas such as Ang Mo Kio, Hougang, Buangkok, Punggol, Sengkang, Upper Paya Lebar and Kaki Bukit will have their speed limits revised with effect from 1 September 2005. Please see Annex A for the list of roads with the revised speed limits.
This is the second phase of the nationwide speed limit review which started in April 2005, and is expected to be completed by December 2005.
The first phase saw changes in the speed limits for 16 stretches of roads in Woodlands, Sembawang and Yishun from 1 June 2005 . Please see Annex B for background information on the island-wide Speed Limit Review.
Responsibility of Road Users
While the speed limits of the roads have been raised, motorists should continue to exercise their judgment and adjust their speeds accordingly where necessary, so as to ensure their safety and that of other road users.
Speeding remains one of the main causes of accidents. Driving or riding beyond the stipulated speed limits increases the likelihood of serious injuries in the event of an accident. Life is precious. Use the roads responsibly. Together, we can make our roads safer.
