The roads in Singapore


The Expressways of Singapore is a network of controlled-access highways that spans throughout the city-state of Singapore. Construction of the system was authorized when construction of the Pan Island Expressway began in 1962. All of them are dual carriageways with grade-separated access. They usually have three to four lanes in each direction, although there are two-lane carriageways at many expressway intersections and five-lane carriageways in some places.

Construction on the first expressway, the Pan Island Expressway, was completed in 1969. As of 2014, there are ten expressways in Singapore totalling 163 kilometres (101 mi).[1]

The streetscape in areas such as Sembawang, Bishan-Toa Payoh, Tanjong Pagar and Jalan Besar will also be gradually reshaped, she added in response to suggestions by Ms Yeo Wan Ling (Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC) and Mr Lim Biow Chuan (Mountbatten) on improving infrastructure for both pedestrians and cyclists here.

Before commencing on these projects, the LTA will seek views from residents, grassroots volunteers, town councils and local businesses to identify potential enhancements, Dr Khor said.

These views will shape key project details, such as the length of the stretch of road being repurposed, when permanent infrastructure enhancement works will start, or if the project should proceed at all in the first place.

Responding to Nominated MP Cheng Hsing Yao, who had asked about LTA’s plans to make areas of historical significance in Singapore more walkable, Dr Khor said many Singaporeans have expressed a desire for more extensive pedestrianisation of the Civic District, and the LTA can do more.
