SINGAPORE – Those who cycle or drive recklessly on a dedicated cycling lane near Seletar Aerospace Park could face penalties for doing so.
The cycling lane, which spans 4.6km along West Camp Road and was launched from Sunday, is the first in the country to be time-based, allowing exclusive access to cyclists from 5am to 11am every Sunday under a six-month trial.
But buses can use this lane too during those hours, with other vehicles including personal mobility devices barred.
Speaking to reporters at the launch on Sunday, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Transport Baey Yam Keng said enforcement measures will be carried out by the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
The cycling lane – in both directions of the road – is demarcated by solid blue markings, with operating hours indicated on road signboards and on the lane.
A handbook has also been launched to guide road users to share the space safely.
