The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed the widening of the Central Expressway (CTE) between Bukit Timah Road and Yio Chu Kang Road to four continuous lanes. The construction of a pair of new flyovers that connects traffic between the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) and CTE is also completed. The new flyovers will open in phases - the flyover along CTE (City bound) will open from 3am, 3 December 2011 and the flyover along CTE (SLE bound) will open from 6am, 17 December 2011.

The completion of the flyovers marks a significant milestone in the completion of the CTE widening project. The new flyovers will provide traffic travelling between PIE and CTE with a dedicated access. This will, in turn, improve traffic conditions on the main CTE carriageway. Road works along the at-grade portion of the CTE will continue till the end of the year.

The widening project started in 2008 with the first stretch of CTE between Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. Works to widen the other stretches started from early 2009. The widened portions of the CTE have been progressively opened to traffic.

With the completion of CTE widening to four continuous lanes, the overall traffic capacity along the expressway has also increased. Motorists can look forward to a smoother travel experience and cut in expected travelling time to the city by up to 15%.
