The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed a stretch of Sengkang West Road and will realign Jalan Kayu (between Sengkang West Ave and Yio Chu Kang Road) to the new Sengkang West Road on Sunday, 13 October 2013.
The construction of Sengkang West Road is part of the road interchange for the Seletar Aerospace Park and future Sengkang Industrial Estate, as the existing Jalan Kayu cannot support the traffic demands from these future developments. Its alignment is planned to connect it to Seletar Aerospace Flyover and Yio Chu Kang Road. This alignment has taken into consideration URA and JTC’s developmental plans and to optimise the land use at Sengkang West. With these changes, part of Jalan Kayu and a stretch of Fernvale lane will be realigned to connect to Sengkang West Road.
Motorists travelling to and fro from Yio Chu Kang Road to Jalan Kayu will need to travel along Sengkang West Road and Sengkang West Ave.
Motorists from Yio Chu Kang Road to Fernvale Lane will have to travel along Sengkang West Road and Sengkang West Ave instead of turning right from Sengkang West Road to Fernvale Lane. The right turn lane at the junction of Sengkang West Road and Fernvale Lane is reserved only for Public Bus Service No.163.
All existing bus services will be retained and will not be affected. New bus shelters are located at Sengkang West Road and Sengkang West Ave for these bus services.
Directional and information signs will be placed to inform and guide road users. Motorists are advised to drive carefully when approaching traffic signals and observe the traffic indications.
