The Land Transport Authority will open the Tuas Viaduct from 6am on Saturday, 18 February 2017, to enhance transport connectivity to businesses in Tuas.
- The 4.8km long viaduct is the first integrated road – rail viaduct and part of the Tuas West Extension project. The viaduct will provide an alternate route to Tuas South by allowing motorists to by-pass the at-grade Pioneer Road. There will be five ramps (two up-ramps and three down-ramps) along the viaduct. Please refer to Annex A for the location of the ramps.
- New directional signs will be placed to guide motorists. Traffic marshals will also be deployed to help direct motorists. Motorists are advised to plan their routes in advance and follow the traffic signs and traffic wardens on site to help them navigate to their destinations.
Supporting Tuas’s future development
- The completion of the viaduct will support longer term developments within the Tuas area, including the future Tuas Port, as well as other upcoming industrial developments within the Tuas, Tuas South and Pioneer areas.
Opening of Tuas West MRT stations
- Works on the four MRT stations of the Tuas West Extension – Gul Circle, Tuas Crescent, Tuas West Road and Tuas Link, have also been completed. Following the completion of train testing works, LTA expects to open the stations for passenger service in the second quarter of 2017.
