The North-South Corridor (NSC) will be Singapore’s longest Transit Priority Corridor, featuring dedicated bus lanes, cycling trunk routes and pedestrian paths, to serve public bus commuters, active mobility users and pedestrians. Expected to complete from 2027, it will directly connect the Northern region and the city centre. All civil contracts for the construction of the tunnels and viaducts have been awarded and construction is currently underway.
Smoother Journeys for All
Smoother, faster journeys is what commuters can look forward to when the NSC is completed. The corridor, spanning 21.5 km, connects the city to the northern region.
The corridor will also alleviate traffic on the CTE and major arterial roads such as Thomson and Marymount Road.
With dedicated and continuous bus lanes coupled with bus priority signals, bus commuters will be expected to save an average of 10 to 15 minutes of travel time.
Active mobility users and pedestrians will also benefit from NSC, through the cycling trunk routes and pedestrian paths. These will link with the Park Connector Network and local cycling paths within HDB towns along the entire corridor, enhancing connectivity for active mobility users and pedestrians.
To facilitate the construction of the NSC tunnels which lie directly underneath the junction of Thomson Road with Newton Road and Moulmein Road, the junction will be reconfigured from 18 October 2020 onwards.
