Comparing Punggol Road against top congested roads in Singapore

How will Punggol Road stack up?

Posted on Mon, 18 Dec 2017

To date, Traffico has been monitoring specific stretches along these roads:

  • Clementi Ave 6
  • Simei Ave
  • Punggol Road
  • Hougang Ave 4
  • Lornie Road
  • Lentor Ave

Based on data collected, there was not much competition where congestion is concerned - Punggol Road wins!

I wonder how it compares to the rest of the roads in Singapore, though I cannot possibly monitor every major road due to resource constraints. Fortunately, after a bit of research, I found a good place to start:

TomTom 2016 Delay Hotspots in Singapore TomTom 2016 Delay Hotspots in Singapore

The idea is to compare Punggol Road with the rest of these hotspots. However, some of these roads do not have buses passing through so Traffico is unable to monitor them. I have also eliminated roads in the city area to focus on roads outside the Central Region.

After taking these into considerations, I am left with these hotspots.

  2Serangoon, Balestier Road, Lavender Street
11Paya Lebar Road
13Balestier Road, Thomson Road
16Loyang Ave, Tampines Ave 7
19Eunos Link, Airport Road
20Toh Guan Road, Jurong Gateway Road
22Jalan Bukit Merah, Henderson Road
25Stevens Road

This is something manageable to work with. I will add these roads into Traffico and we should see some results next month.

Stay tuned!
