Stretch Of CTE Between Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 And 3 To Be Widened

Source : Channel NewsAsia, 30 May 2008

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be widening various stretches of the Central Expressway (CTE).

This was announced by LTA when it gave details of the first stretch to be widened - the section from Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 to Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. The existing three lanes will be widened to four.

LTA said this is to enhance connectivity and cater to the future population growth in the northeast.

Construction will begin next Monday and it is scheduled to be completed by the end of next year.

Meanwhile, LTA will put up signs about some of the road closures so that motorists can be diverted to alternative routes.

LTA also said three more stretches of the CTE will be widened by the end of 2011 and these fall between the Pan-Island Expressway and Yio Chu Kang Road.

LTA will be calling for contracts to widen these three stretches by the end of the year. - CNA/ms
