Gantry sign cleaning is a laborious and hazardous process. The nature of the cleaning operation relies heavily on physical labour and the works may be subjected to delays especially as the manpower crunch continue to worsen during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are 200+ gantry signs on the roads over Singapore. The desired outcome is to have at least 25% manpower saving in carrying out the washing operation; and at least 25% reduction in the duration for carrying out the washing operation.
Non-Singapore registered business entities, IHLs, and RIs may partner a Singapore start-up or SME that fulfils criteria to stand the chance to benefit from up to S$2 million in co-funding grant support at various stages from prototype, deployment to adoption.
