The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will extend the existing Sengkang West Way from Jalan Kayu to Sengkang West Road. The existing stretch of Sengkang West Way between Jalan Kayu and Fernvale Road is a dual-three lane road which provides motorists from the Sengkang and Jalan Kayu areas with connectivity to the expressway network via Jalan Kayu. The proposed road extension is part of the road network enhancement plan to support upcoming developments in this region, such as redevelopment of the Seletar Aerospace Park.
2. In 2013, LTA completed the stretch of Sengkang West Road between Yio Chu Kang Road and Sengkang West Avenue, and the stretch of Sengkang West Way between Jalan Kayu and Fernvale Road. By 3rd quarter of 2014, a new interchange, consisting of a dual 3-lane flyover (Seletar Aerospace Flyover) across Tampines Expressway (TPE), will connect to the CTE/ SLE/ TPE and Jalan Kayu.
3. Works for the extension of Sengkang West Way will commence in 3rd quarter of 2015. The contractor engaged by LTA will erect temporary barriers where possible to minimise noise and any inconvenience to residents and occupants living or working in close proximity to the works.
4. Please refer to Annex A for the location plan.
5. To facilitate the road works, the Government will need to acquire the Esso Petrol Station at 215 Jalan Kayu under the Land Acquisition Act. The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has gazetted the land affected by the acquisition today.
