Expect Delays at Holland Road

A snapshot of a lunchtime traffic along AYE (Ayer Rajah Expressway). On the expressways in Singapore, there's always this board that tells you of traffic conditions ahead.

It is known as EMAS to the locals, and it stands for Expressway Monitoring and Advisory System. The system allows the Land Transport Authority (LTA), to monitor the traffic situations and inform users.

Does you city have a similar system?

Yes, we have something similar. What a neat photo! I don't like highways, but this one is gorgeous.

le signe "SH" sur la route de gauche cela veut dire quoi ? une piste cyclable ?

does sign “SH” on the road of left that want to say what? a cycle track?

"SH" stands for Shoulder. There is also Lanes 1 to 4. Sometimes the electronic display warns that Lane 1 is closed much earlier, so cars know how to change lanes earlier.

Hi Keropok,

Do you feel it's costly to own a car in Singapore? I live here so I know how much one costs but I feel the maintenance is a killer!

Furthermore, buying a car is a losing investment from day one, there's little resale value unless it's an antique car. I'll rather buy a private apartment.

What about you?

Oh, so that means you ride on the other side, like in Britain? (just read your comment on what "SH" means)
