Just a TINY notice. About the townplanning meddling, friends who are thinking of messing with it, this is a warning. Be sure that you deal with cars and pedestrians and also how the roads affect the buildings. I have been thinking of doing flyovers and tunnels in my project and I've hit alot of dead ends basically because of the amount of space they need and the safety offset boundaries to buildings/pedestrian pathways/ parking lots.
This here is a picture of how I drew up the traffic to see my space limitations. My proposed idea was to be in the center of the road in between the new and old markets. So points for lookout is mainly:-
1) Pedestrian pathway
2) Where and how the pedestrian enters buildings (not necessarily your own only)
3) Car/ Motorcycle traffic (one-way or two-way/direction/crossroads/turnings)
4) Entry/Parking of vehicles (Any emergency stop points?)
*5) If flyovers, does the start of the rise interfere with entry/front facade visual appearance to adjacent buildings?
If you zoomed in on the pictures below, you'll be able to see traffic boundaries of one ways and turnings. Generally, Taiping's roads are fairly wide, it won't be too hard to deal with it if you have little changes. But precaution is always good... Singaporeans maybe known best for it... being DAMN kiasu. =) (We don't wanna be shot by the panelists now do we?)
Hope this helped...... also hoping someone was as un-smart as me to almost make the mistake so the post won't be useless haha =)
