SINGAPORE - More signalised pedestrian crossings will be built where possible in future, so that elderly pedestrians and people with disabilities have an easier time crossing the road. LTA is installing lifts at 41 overhead bridges, with priority given to areas frequented by the elderly or disabled such as healthcare institutions and schools for special needs children. It is also looking into equipping all new MRT stations with two sets of lifts to avoid 'single point of failure'.
