A new vehicular underpass connecting motorists seamlessly from the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) to Nicoll Highway will open on April 2. This is expected to ease the traffic congestion experienced at the KPE’s Nicoll Highway exit, where motorists often find themselves caught at the Sims Way traffic lights soon after leaving the underground highway.
Those coming from Sims Way can also use the underpass to head to Nicoll Highway or Stadium Drive. From April 2, the right-turn from Sims Way to Nicoll Highway at the traffic junction will be removed. When the new underpass opens, the existing access along Nicoll Highway (city-bound) to Stadium Drive will be permanently closed.
Motorists travelling from Guillemard Road will use Stadium Boulevard via Mountbatten Road to access Stadium Drive and then to Singapore Sports Hub. Motorists can access the new road from 6am on April 2.
