Request to LTA for a signalized crossing along 1 Unity Street
This is a petition from members of schools, children establishments and parents to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) to review and provide a safe crossing on Unity Street for all children and caretakers.
The 4-way crossing on Unity Street is in a school zone without adequate safeguards in place to ensure caretakers and children can safely cross the road. The buildings in the vicinity of the intersection house several pre-schools and centres that cater to children from as young as 6 months. There is no zebra crossing or signalised traffic lights in place. This makes the intersection extremely confusing and dangerous with a high risk to young children. The current set up with a little island and a hump is not sufficient.
We request the LTA to install traffic lights and/or a zebra crossing to ensure that caretakers and children feel safe crossing the road in a school zone.
