About This Book

This book traces the development of Singapore's land transport system since its modern founding in 1819. Until Independence in 1965, the provision of roads, traffic devices, and private, public and non-motorised transport were permitted to develop without any masterplanning. It was not until a sound and workable transport strategy was formulated in the early 1970s and implemented rigorously, that there was a marked improvement in the provision of transport services. Besides the tested methods of building roads, and implementing better traffic management and improved bus and rail services, Singapore is a pioneer in road congestion pricing. The safe and efficient movement of people and goods will always remain a top priority.
