The Land Transport Authority, in their strange "wisdom", decided to erect a barrier across the middle of Yio Chu Kang Road and force me to walk 10 meters from the bus stop to the pedestrian crossing. After pressing the light for the stop, it takes several minutes for the green man to appear.
An acceptable waiting time is 1 minute, but often it takes 2 or 3 minutes. During this time, there is usually a safe break in the traffic, so the pedestrians could cross the road safely without the traffic stop. After crossing the road, the pedestrians could look back to see the traffic light stop the traffic for nobody to cross.
This has been happening quite often.
I do not wish to give any feedback to the LTA, because they will have one hundred reasons why the current arrangement works fine.
