LTA Activating New CCTV Cameras @ 10 Locations From 14 Apr 2014

CCTV Sign

From 14 April 2014, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will activate Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras at 10 locations to enforce against illegal parking.

LTA had earlier identified 30 locations to implement CCTV cameras to enforce against illegal parking and improve traffic conditions.

LTA will progressively install CCTV cameras at the remaining 20 locations, which are targeted to be operational by end-2014.

The expansion of the CCTV coverage follows the successful trial along Beach Road (in front of Golden Mile Complex), and at Marine Parade Central (in front of Parkway Parade Shopping Centre). The use of CCTVs has proven to be effective in deterring illegal parking, which has helped to improve traffic flow in the area.

The 30 identified locations are public roads distributed across the island, and they are generally selected based on the following considerations:

  • A high incidence of illegal parking, typically daily and throughout the day.
  • The illegal parking situation impedes the smooth movement of public buses, particularly where the roads serve a high number of public bus services.
  • The illegal parking raises safety concerns for pedestrians and road users and leads to chronic traffic congestion.
  • High concentration of pedestrian movement such as in the CBD, or proximity to popular malls, amenities and eateries.

The CCTVs will be operational 24 hours daily. Prominent signs will be put up in the monitoring zones to remind motorists against parking illegally.

Motorists are encouraged to observe parking regulations to ensure safe and smooth traffic conditions.
