The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will construct a new slip road that will allow motorists to drive directly to KJE (Westbound) from Senja Road.
2. Currently, residents coming from Senja Road have to travel to Senja Way and turn into Woodlands Road before joining the KJE. With the new road, motorists can drive directly to KJE (Westbound) from Senja Road and make significant savings in travelling time. For example, a motorist coming from Blk 652 Senja Road can expect to save up to 5 minutes of travelling time to get onto KJE (Westbound).
3. The new slip road will also improve traffic conditions at the junctions of Senja Way and Senja Road as well as Woodlands Road and Senja Way, and ease congestion along Senja Road and Bukit Panjang Ring Road at peak hours. In addition, the slip road will link motorists from Senja Road to Woodlands Road, allowing them more convenient access to the Woodlands, Marsiling and Upper Bukit Timah areas. Please refer to the Annex for a map of the new road.
4. LTA will call a tender for the project in the first quarter of 2016, and works are expected to commence in the third quarter of 2016. The slip road is scheduled for completion in 2017.
5. Besides the new road link, LTA is studying the feasibility of constructing a full vehicular interchange that will link Senja Road to both bounds of the KJE to provide greater accessibility for the current and future residential estates within Bukit Panjang.
