The National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore, and the Department of Environment (DOE), Malaysia, together with several agencies, will be holding a biennial bilateral chemical spill emergency response exercise on Wednesday, 15 November 2017, at the Tuas Second Link from 6.00 am to 2.00 pm. A rehearsal for the exercise will also be conducted on Monday, 13 November 2017 from 7.00 am to 12.00 pm.
The exercise will simulate a chemical spill along the Tuas Second Link where two vehicles (a passenger car and a truck) are involved in a collision. Arising from the collision, chemicals being transported by the truck started leaking onto the road. For this exercise, six chemical drums will be simulated to be damaged with some fumes released. The public is advised not to be alarmed.
Traffic diversion is expected during the dates and times stated above and motorists are advised to closely follow the traffic marshalls’ directions at the site.
Motorists are advised to avoid the Tuas Second Link when the rehearsal and exercise are ongoing to minimise any inconvenience caused. Motorists are advised to tune in to the Singapore radio stations for any traffic announcements. More on http://bit.ly/2ADIpp6
