Traffic diversion at Tuas on Thursday for emergency exercise

SINGAPORE – The National Environment Agency and Johor’s Department of Environment will be holding its annual bilateral chemical spill emergency response exercise this Thursday at the Second Crossing at Tuas from 6 am to 1 pm.

The exercise will simulate a chemical spill along the Second Crossing where four vehicles (an isotanker, a lorry, a motorcycle and a passenger car) are involved in a multiple collision. Arising from the collision, phenol is released from the isotanker and acid is released from some damaged chemical drums which fell from the lorry. There will be some simulated fumes. The public is advised not to be alarmed.

Traffic diversion is expected during the exercise and motorists are advised to follow closely the Traffic Police’s directions at the site.

Motorists are advised to avoid the Tuas Checkpoint during the exercise to minimise any inconvenience caused by traffic congestion. Announcements on the traffic situation during the exercise will be made through TrafficWatch. Motorists are advised to tune in to the Singapore radio stations for the traffic announcements.
