LTA receives over 20 requests for new signalised pedestrian crossings each month. Each is reviewed to balance the efficiency of other road users and the convenience and safety for pedestrians. Factors such as pedestrian volume, pedestrian mix, road profile, traffic speeds, proximity to nearby crossings, visibility, proximity to nearby junctions/accesses and its constraints are carefully considered before installing a new signalised pedestrian crossing.
