The new snail champion for Nov 2018 is not Punggol Road - TPE (towards Sengkang) and it is likely to stay that way for some time. Yay! It has been relatively quiet here, at my block next to Punggol Road. I don't hear that many cars blasting their horns during peak hours. It feels quieter too, even on weekends. This tranquility is likely due to a combination of these factors:
- There is less traffic due to the year end school break.
- The new link to Punggol Central is effective in directing some traffic away from Punggol Road.
In theory, we know the new link obviously helps but to what extent? Using data collected from Oct 2017, I will investigate further and hopefully find some real numbers that tell us more.
