The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is constructing two new flyovers and widening parts of Upper Bukit Timah Road & Woodlands Road to improve the overall traffic flow along this road corridor.

Upper Bukit Timah Road and Woodlands Road is as a key arterial road corridor for the north-western part of Singapore, serving the Kranji and Mandai industrial estates as well as the Bukit Panjang and Choa Chu Kang residential estates. Currently, the corridor experiences high traffic volumes, especially at key junctions and intersections during peak hours.

When the road widening and improvement works are completed in 2015, there will be three continuous lanes in both directions. Motorists travelling along this road corridor can expect shorter journey times by using the new flyovers to bypass the traffic junctions at Woodlands Road/Bukit Panjang Road and Upper Bukit Timah Road/Dairy Farm Road/Hillview Road.

The road widening and improvement works are expected to commence in the second half of 2011. To minimise the period of disruption to the residents and motorists, LTA will dovetail the road works with the ongoing construction of DTL2 stations and tunnels, so that the reinstatement of the road carriageway affected by the DTL2 construction will also incorporate the road improvement works. By taking this construction approach, the overall construction time will be shortened.

"When completed, the new road and rail infrastructural developments will greatly benefit residents and businesses in the north western parts of the island. By coordinating the schedules of work, we are able to ensure a smooth transition between the two projects and, at the same time minimise the disruption to nearby stakeholders," said Mr Lim Bok Ngam, Acting Chief Executive Land Transport Authority.
