Within two weeks, there were three oil spills that affected thousands of commuters across the island. The first oil spill, which occurred on Jan 29, caused massive traffic jams from the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) all the way to Woodlands bus interchange.
A second oil spill occurred on Feb 1, on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) near the Jurong Town Road exit. The third (and the last, we hope) occurred just two days ago on Feb 2 at Kampong Bahru, towards the Central Expressway. All three were caused by vehicle collisions.
