Enhanced Road Connectivity and Improved Traffic Flow for Punggol Town
Residents of Punggol town will have an additional route option between Punggol Central and Tampines Expressway (Central Expressway/Seletar Expressway) (TPE (CTE/SLE)) with the opening of a new slip road on 28 November 2020 (Saturday). The new slip road connects Halus Link with TPE (CTE/SLE) and will help to ease the current traffic along Punggol East.
2 This marks the completion of a two-phase expansion of the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and the Tampines Expressway (KPE/TPE) Interchange (please refer to Annex A for details of the two phases). The expanded interchange will serve existing and new developments in Punggol town by improving connectivity between KPE and TPE with Punggol Central, Pasir Ris Industrial Drive 1 and Lorong Halus. Since the progressive opening of the roads from 2018, traffic conditions have improved at TPE between Punggol Way and KPE, and the existing access points of Punggol town through Punggol Road and Punggol East.
3 To inform motorists of these changes, radio messages will be broadcasted on LTA Traffic News. Informational and directional traffic signs will also be put up in the vicinity closer to the opening date to guide motorists along the new road.
