Abstract: The Government is investing in millions of dollars in plans and initiatives for Singapore to adopt a car-lite vision by promoting and adopting active mobility alternatives for daily transportation by encouraging Singaporeans to switch from private cars to public transport and cycling. This vision shows our changing needs to suit our growing population and signals the future of land transport to be an active mobility (AM) one in Singapore. Singapore, which is dense and limited in land space, has seen a rise in walking, cycling and the use of personal mobility devices (PMD) for their daily commute. This is especially so for short trips within residential towns and for first-and-last mile connections to public transport. Conflicts between AM users (cyclists and PMD users) and pedestrians are inevitable as they share footpaths and there are a slew of rules and regulations introduced by the Active Mobility Act to ensure a safer journey for all. However, bicycle crossings (meant also for PMDs) are often overlooked and not heavily covered by the Active Mobility Act. Bicycle crossings include overhead bridges, underpasses, signalised junctions and zebra crossings. It is important that we investigate into such crossings and study its effectiveness and safety for AM users, in the day and night. The results of this report will analyse the behaviour of AM users and the speed of AM users and motorists when they approach an uncontrolled crossing. Mitigation measures are also proposed to improve the safety of the bicycle crossings. This report will cover on uncontrolled crossings while my partner, Tay Si Ting, will cover on controlled crossings, overhead bridges and underpasses.
