Built at a budget of S$3.5 billion over five years, the viaduct is the first in Singapore to integrate road and rail, and is aimed at enhancing transport connectivity to businesses in Tuas.
The viaduct, Singapore's first "twin-tier road-rail integrated viaduct", will provide a faster route to Tuas South by allowing motorists to bypass the busy Pioneer Road. The stretch forms part of a 7.5-km rail viaduct linking the MRT stations of Tuas Link, Tuas West Road, Tuas Crescent and Gul Circle – slated to open in the second quarter of this year – with Joo Koon station on the East-West Line. Once opened, commuters to the Tuas area can save up to 35 minutes in travelling time, LTA said.
The completed viaduct, part of the Tuas West Extension project, provides better transport connections for the future Tuas Port, and other upcoming industrial developments within the area.
Motorists using the viaduct can by-pass up to six traffic junctions at Pioneer Road. Motorists can enter the viaduct via two up-ramps at Tuas South Ave 3 and Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim. There will be three down-ramps along the viaduct.
