Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be implementing speed regulating strips at the Marine Parade roundabout in addition to the road warning signs at the side of the road following a fatal accident last week, which involved a car and an 82-year-old woman.

This was announced by Member of Parliament for Mountbatten Lim Biow Chuan on his Facebook page on Saturday (23 March), saying that this would slow down the speed of vehicles entering the roundabout.

He noted that he will meet with LTA on site to discuss other measures to make the place safer for the residents next week.

In an update on Monday, the authority stated that roadworks to implement the speed regulating strips and new speed advisory signs will take place on Wednesday.

Parts of the road will be closed and directional and information signs will be placed to guide motorists during ongoing works, which will be placed before the roundabout for both approaches from Marine Parade Road and Amber Road.

The signs are to remind motorists of the 30kmh speed limit in the area, said the authority and added that it will monitor the effectiveness of the scheme and concurrently review the feasibility of implementing additional measures to maintain a safe road environment.

The move came after a tragic incident of the elderly who passed away after being hit by a car.

Cited from Channel NewsAsia, the woman was standing on the pavement at the junction of Marine Parade Road and Amber Road on 18 March when the car mounted the kerb and hit her.

She was said to have flung into the air by the impact and hit her head on the windshield of the car, causing her to bleed from the head.

The woman was then unconsciously conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

The 29-year-old driver is assisting in investigations.

苏利亚患癌妻病危 律师拉维吁一同祈求度过难关

此前,本社报导,一名印裔妇女莎若吉妮因患癌,其丈夫苏利亚向中央公积金局申请,将自己的普通和特别户头存款,转移到妻子的保健储蓄(medisave)户头,引起网民读者回响。 不过,为莎若吉妮请命的人权律师拉维,今日在脸书透露,苏利亚那的妻子处在病危状态,希望大家能为这位勇敢的女人和她始终如一的丈夫祷告,希望他们一家能度过难关。 拉维未分享莎若吉妮是因何原因,导致陷入目前的病危状态。 2016年12月,47岁的印裔妇女莎若吉妮,被诊断患有卵巢癌,他们一家为此饱受煎熬,财务状况也陷困顿。 丈夫苏利亚希望能治好妻子的病,向中央公积金局申请,将自己的普通和特别户头存款,转移到妻子的保健储蓄(medisave)户头,好让妻子能继续抗癌,不过公积金局拒绝了苏利亚的要求。 “当我的妻子在受苦,那我留着存款又有何用?我的妻子就是我的一切。”苏利亚每月薪资大约为三千新元。为了筹措医药费,苏利亚已经用了一切方法:向贷款公司、亲友、雇主乃至上网众筹。 上月初,原本苏利亚打算透过拉维入禀高庭,以申请强制令要求公积金局,准许他把公积金储蓄转移给妻子。但在上月15日,苏利亚的诉讼获得与公积金局友好和解,双方也告知法院撤回诉讼。
