New Vehicular Underpass from Sims Way to Nicoll Highway to Open on 2 April 2017

News Releases
14 Mar 2017

Direct Connection from KPE and Sims Way
to Nicoll Highway or Stadium Drive

 

    The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed the new vehicular underpass at the junction of Nicoll Highway and Sims Way. The new underpass will open on Sunday, 2 April 2017 at 6am.

2.  Motorists travelling from Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) and Sims Way can use this new two-lane vehicular underpass to connect directly to Nicoll Highway or Stadium Drive to reach their destinations. This will help to alleviate the congestion motorists currently experience at the KPE exit and Sims Way when connecting to Nicoll Highway. With the opening of the new underpass, the right turn from Sims Way to Nicoll Highway at the traffic junction will be removed.

3.  To facilitate the connection of the underpass to Nicoll Highway and Stadium Drive, the existing access along Nicoll Highway (City Bound) to Stadium Drive will be permanently closed to motorists when the new underpass opens. Motorists travelling from Guillemard Road should use Stadium Boulevard via Mountbatten Road to access Stadium Drive and Singapore Sports Hub. Please refer to the Annex for details of the new underpass and road connections.

4.  Motorists are advised to plan their routes in advance and follow the traffic signs on site to help them navigate to their destinations. To familiarise motorists with the new road network, LTA has produced a series of four videos showing the different routes they can take when travelling in the area. The videos are available on LTA’s website (www.lta.gov.sg) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/LTAsingapore).

5.  The public can also refer to maps that will be published in the newspapers before the opening of the new underpass.
