I noticed there are some grown plantings along the roadside and pedestrian crossings as it has often obstructed our line of sight while driving. I would like to know if there are any guidelines for plantings in Singapore and how can we get it rectified on such issues?

We agree that it is important to keep a clear view of the roads and we have feedback the issue to the authorities.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has guidelines in place to ensure the plantings along the roads/crossings do not affect road safety.

The National Parks Board (NParks) has a regular maintenance programme for greenery along roads. When visibility is compromised due to issues such as overgrown plantings, LTA will work with NParks to address the issue.

Safety measures such as flashing yellow beacons, signs and lane markings have also been implemented to alert motorists to look out for pedestrians and slow down as they approach a zebra crossing.

AA Singapore also welcome feedback from our Members and other members of public on areas of safety concern. These can be sent via the AA website or email to us at aasmail@aas.com.sg.
