Located in the north-eastern part of Singapore, the Tampines Expressway (TPE) is a 14.4km expressway that merges with the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) near Changi Airport in the east. It also connects with the Central Expressway (CTE) and Seletar Expressway (SLE) in the northern part of the island.
Concurrent to the development of Tampines New Town, the expressway was constructed in the 1980s.
In 1998, two new viaducts and a loop connecting the TPE and PIE were constructed to shorten the distance for motorists travelling from Pasir Ris and Tampines to Changi Airport.
The TPE connects the junction of the SLE and CTE at Yio Chu Kang in the north to the PIE at Changi in the east. The regions covered are Tampines, Pasir Ris, Lorong Halus, Punggol, Sengkang and Seletar.
