was listening to 93.8 just now and heard this announcement to advise motorist to head for either the entrance or exit [whichever safer] of the tunnel at fort canning if there was a fire in tunnel.

??????

Isn't this common sense?:think:

Is LTA trying to insult our IQ or is it that they hv forgotten to build in some intermediate escape points along the tunnel and now desperately trying to "educate" the motorists? LOLLLLL

and, btw, how the hexx would one know whether the entrance or exit is safer???? under the thick smoke??? it is either you take a 50-50 bet or if you are "sway", both ends may not be passable and you a dead duck.

are you a fire fighter?

are you a trained police officer?

if you don't know how they determine what is safe and what is not, why do you speak as if you do?

anyway, you just answered your own question:

Exit signs should point to the nearest exit, right? Otherwise they would be pointless. Secondly, they are not mounted under the ceiling where smoke would gather.

According to what I hv heard from the radio, the only exits are the ends of the tunnel [the entrance end and the out end]

And LTA is saying that if there is a fire, go for the safer end of the tunnel.

My reaction is that "isn't that obvious? one would definitely go for the ends if there is no intermediate escape exits between the ends"

And the most funny thing is that they ask you to go to the safer side. [common sense right?] provided you know which is the safer side. LOL

Actual scenario in the video below. People are heading towards the same direction as the smoke which is probably not the safe side.
