    This is proof of absolute complacency on the government. They are bringing in FTs by the millions and grossly neglected the infrastrure supports. Maybe Uncle Yap could also film more similar situations at Tampines Mall MRT exit and Century Square pedestration crossing.

    Good work! Uncle Yap.

    I await the day where a truck flipped over at the intersection, killing 10s maybe 100s of people, causing a furor that would rival the SMRT debacle.

    The green man timing for pedestrian crossing is super long. I won't be surprised that one day, some impatient motorist try to beat the lights and cause some accident. If you notice Bugis MRT has only three exits. There is no exit on Bugis Village side. LTA should acquire the front shops in Bugis Village or the shop currently occupied by Burger King and move the busstop to build an exit from the MRT. Real bodoh, these civil servants!

    Holly shit that was a trouble spot 10 years ago, when I lived in Tampines. And not solved / improved still is it? There was contineous stream of people crossing Boh-Chap and cars also want to ramp across if they did not do anything all these while.. RIP those I wonder how many killed there in the past years.

    Thanks Uncle Yap. Never realised how big the problem is until seeing this video. I can't imagine why LTA is not doing anything to resolve the issue.

    Digging a tunnel will take too long. Just remove the barriers that is restricting the flow rate and the jam will not build up in the centre island.

    There is currently an on going construction project digging right below there for new MRT line and Bugis MRT will be connected to the new line as an Inter-Change. But they never seems have included such a tunnel for pedestrians to cross this place.

    Yes I already pointed out, the quick make-shift is to take out the railing barriers and RE-TIME the traffic lights so that cars stops on both directions of road together and let people cross all the way to the other side without being stranded in the middle. That is going to make vehicle traffic a bit worse but increase the SAFETY of the pedestrians.

    For longer term they better have a tunnel for pedestrians. Exit at where the Bugis Village bus stop currently is. Shift the bus stop a little towards Illuma or to the illuma exactly. There is a lane Cheng Yan Place which causes the bus stop unsuitable to be too close to it.

    Several and various parts of the video actually showed the construction site mentioned in above msg.

    Site is right in front of Bugis Junction surrounded by green colored steel plates (site parameters). Heavy construction machineries can be seen working behind the site parameters. That is one of the new exits from MRT I supposed. What they really need to do is to construct a tunnel over to the opposite side from there.

    I thought there is already a tunnel crossing from bugis MRT into Bugis junction? I usually prefer going through the tunnel rather then going through the traffic lights even back then.

    Not the same!

    There is a tunnel exit over the other side of Rochor Rd. (this one exit to a big car park where the temp Tekka hawker center was - now torn down already - area traditionally known as Johore Road aka Ah Gua Fuck Shops)

    The one traffic light pedestrian crossing in question is not on the same side as the above. To be precise the is the Victoria St crossing between Bugis Junction & Bugis village.

    In the Map below the Johore Road car park is top right corner. The crossing in question is near (lower) center of map. MRT station is directly below Victoria St.

    Google map's mark for EW12 Bugis MRT is not that accurate, ignore it. Their mark is one other exit where the old CC was.

    Tart You: not my fault ok. I just came on board.
    紀雲.

    晨云之美目不見
    夜深人靜心念云

    年少時多心不定
    老時心悔不惜云

    一生能見几晨雲
    無望心死此决歌


    思云

    辰云之美心头思
    此生无缘再见云

    但愿日落有云伴
    末路走来无遗憾

    虽然辰云随风散
    但云永在心头思

    忘云
    从起点到终点
    云得到的是伤痕
    隆得到的是遗憾
    伤痕随时间愈合
    遗憾将伴隆一生

    人生
    人生已经走到尽头,还有什么梦
    人生像一盘棋走着走着,怎么会走到死棋
    明知死棋,还继续下
    这是天意,还是认命
    这是放下,还是无望
    就算会有奇迹,还有时间吗?
    是我消沉,还是事实
    男人不怕入错行,是怕睡错人
