Residents in Punggol should have heard the good news that the new link between Kallang-Paya Lebar (KPE) / Tampines Expressway (TPE) interchange and Punggol Central would be available by end Nov 2018, one year ahead of schedule. With another vital ingress and egress into and out of Punggol Town, the dynamics of Punggol road will surely change.

Over the last weekend, Traffico was down between Saturday noon and Sunday late afternoon. According to the hosting company, for some reasons, the IP address of the LTA server was placed in a blacklist due to suspicious activities.

Yesterday, I was alerted to a traffic jam along Lornie road by a friend via WhatsApp. Apparently, by that time (10:40am), the congestion has somewhat eased...

Other than a minor change in ranking, you will also see a drop in congestions across the board. This might be one of the strongest evidence yet of a correlation between school holidays and traffic conditions.

This makes Traffico a little more ‘sensitive’ to pick up traffic buildup but not too overly sensitive to report false prolonged congestion. It should not have a negative impact on the monthly statistics and ranking as well.

Yes, no surprises there. In fact, spots along Punggol Road hold the top four of five positions. Salute! What made Punggol Road such a winner is the good mix of weekday and weekend congestions.

Yesterday, I was randomly checking out Traffico home page when it reported a congestion along Clementi Ave 6 (Exit AYE towards Clementi Ave 6) at around 1:10pm.

Is that true? Fortunately, there is a traffic camera pointing at that exit so I was able to investigate further.

This is the reason why I started Project Traffico in the first place - to better understand the traffic conditions along Punggol Road - TPE junction.
