LTA Media Statement: Media Update at 1030hrs on Worksite Accident at Slip Road from Upper Changi Road East to PIE (Changi)

News Releases
15 Jul 2017

The at-grade temporary bypass road to connect vehicles from Upper Changi Road East to PIE (Changi) will open by Sunday, 16 July afternoon, instead of today.

Due to the wet weather conditions, more time was needed to prepare the ground, before we are able to proceed with the paving of the temporary road surface. As safety is paramount, LTA will carry out a review of the temporary road and conduct a trial drive-through before opening the road for public use. We thank the public for their understanding.

Traffic conditions in the area remain light, while LTA will continue to add buses to serve Service 24 to minimise inconvenience to commuters.

As of 10am, seven of the 10 injured workers remain warded. LTA’s officers will continue to render all necessary assistance to the workers affected in the accident.
