Oral Reply by Senior Minister of State for Transport Dr Lam Pin Min to Parliamentary Question on Designating Enclosed Void Deck Space as Pedestrian-Only Paths under the Active Mobility Act

07 May 2019 In Parliament

Mr Murali Pillai asked the Minister for Transport whether enclosed void deck space in HDB housing estates covering the ground floor lift lobbies and letter box areas may be designated as pedestrian-only paths under the Active Mobility Act to reduce the risk of collision between PMD users and block residents in these areas. 

Reply by Senior Minister of State for Transport Dr Lam Pin Min:

1.     Void deck spaces in HDB housing estates are not declared as public paths under the Active Mobility Act. Thus, Town Councils can set and enforce their own rules on the usage of personal mobility devices in such areas, including banning their use.
