From early next year, cyclists and users of personal mobility devices (PMDs) will have to watch their speed when travelling on footpaths following the recommendations made by the Active Mobility Advisory Panel.
More senior citizens will be able to enjoy subsidised rates for hearing, eyesight and oral health tests - also known as functional screenings - following the launch of Project Silver Screen at Kampung Admiralty on Wednesday (Sep 19).
This is part of a new collaboration between the Ministry of Health, Temasek Foundation Cares and the business community to help people above the age of 60 actively manage their health and well-being.
The programme enables Pioneer Generation citizens to have these screenings done for free. Community Health Assist Scheme card holders pay S$2 and while others pay S$5.
Vouchers worth between S$15 and S$200 will also be given to purchase spectacles, hearing aids and dentures.
