LTA to freeze num­ber of cars in Sin­ga­pore roads in 2018

Singapore Business Review - - NEWS FROM SBR.COM.SG -

The land Trans­port Au­thor­ity (LTA) will stop ve­hi­cle growth for cars and mo­tor­cy­cles, or those in cat­e­gories A, b, and D, start­ing Fe­bru­ary 2018. Ac­cord­ing to LTA, 12% of sin­ga­pore’s land area is taken up by roads. Due to land con­straints and com­pet­ing needs, the gov­ern­ment finds it dif­fi­cult to ex­pand the cur­rent road net­work. Ve­hi­cle growth rate will be low­ered to zero.
