Just alighted on the opposite side of punggol plaza today. Noticed that the barriers are now contiguous, meaning that there is no gap for pedestrians anymore.

Good move... save lives.

Girl's death due to negligence
By Khushwant Singh

'In my opinion, it was negligent to travel at such a high speed along a road near a bus stop serving a densely populated estate,' noted Coroner Soh.

The coroner noted that the speed limit there was 50kmh but accident reconstruction experts determined that Mr Tijan's Subaru Impreza was travelling between 71kmh and 85kmh at that time.

Feedback from Michael Low to LTA

http://www.tnp.sg/printfriendly/0,4139,233612,00.html

’Dangerous zones’ near shopping mall”, The New Paper, 17 Mar 2010
18 March 2010

SOME time ago, a 5-year-old girl was killed when crossing the road with her grandfather in Punggol.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) then erected a metal barrier on the centre divider to prevent people from crossing the road dangerously.

Mostly, people cross to get to bus-stops or to Punggol Plaza.

Now, people have to walk to the LRT station nearby, take the lift up and walk to another lift to go down.

This is safer, but it takes more time.

I suggest that LTA put zebra crossings on both sides of Punggol Field, near the bus-stops.

Outside the entrance of Punggol Plaza is another danger point.

Pedestrians going to Punggol Plaza have to cross a short stretch of road, where they have to look to the right for cars turning into the basement and to the left for those coming out.

Motorists and pedestrians have to be extra careful here.

It doesn't help that many people are pushing prams and shopping carts or carrying bags of groceries.

A zebra crossing may not be feasible at this point as it may create a bottleneck for the vehicles.

Perhaps a big warning sign can be put up for motorists to slow down and be extra careful.
