SINGAPORE: The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will install closed circuit television cameras (CCTVs) at 30 locations to deter illegal parking. The CCTVs will be installed progressively from the second quarter of 2013.
All of them will be installed by 2014.
The 30 locations are roads which have a high incidence of illegal parking, which made it difficult for public buses to operate.
They include Upper Bukit Timah Road (The Linear), Ardmore Park, Draycott Park, Commonwealth Avenue West, Serangoon Central and Bishan Road (Bishan MRT).
The LTA decided to expand the use of CCTVs, after it tried out the device along Beach Road (in front of Golden Mile Complex) and at Marine Parade Central (in front of Parkway Parade Shopping Centre).
The LTA found that they were useful in nabbing people who parked illegally and helped improve traffic conditions over time.
