Mariam Jaafar on Land Transport Authority of Singapore (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
A Bill up for debate in Parliament empowers the Land Transport Authority to set standards on electric vehicle charging devices and equipment to protect public safety. MP Mariam Jaafar asked if it should also mandate a customer-centred approach, covering factors such as interoperability to make usage seamless for consumers. Speaking on Tuesday (May 11), Ms Mariam also said beyond charging infrastructure, investments will be needed to finance grid upgrades and land-use changes. She asked how subsidies will play a role in developing the industry.
