Parliament: $1b needed to speed up, complete building of cycling path network; e-scooter accidents fall by 30%


More than $1 billion will be needed to speed up and complete plans to triple the cycling network in Singapore, amid a recent ban on the use of e-scooters on footpaths to improve pedestrians’ safety.

Since the ban on Nov 5, accidents involving e-scooters have dropped by about 30 per cent, said Senior Minister of State for Transport Lam Pin Min, adding that further reduction can be expected as enforcement is stepped up.

The Government announced last August that it aimed to triple the cycling path network from the current 440km to 1,300km by 2030, but last month, Dr Lam said it aimed to hasten plans by “a couple of years”.
