The success of bus and bicycle priority measures is an essential component in people moving from cars to more sustainable modes of transport, thereby reducing emissions and congestion. It is therefore necessary to ensure that we have the best possible system for enforcement of the rules on both bus corridors and cycle tracks, particularly in the context of BusConnects.

Officials in my Department are currently engaging with the National Transport Authority and other stakeholders to see how this can best be achieved.
