North South Corridor
The construction of NSE will benefit residents living in the north and north-eastern sectors of Singapore as it caters to the expected growth in traffic demand generated by new developments there. Running parallel to the Central Expressway (CTE), NSE will help to alleviate the traffic load on the heavily-utilised expressway, as well as on the nearby major arterial roads such as Thomson Road and Marymount Road.
When completed, NSE will be Singapore’s eleventh expressway. The new expressway will have a total of 16 in-ramps and 17 out-ramps to connect towns along the north-south corridor – Woodlands, Sembawang, Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Bishan and Toa Payoh – with the city centre. NSE will also intersect and provide links to existing expressways, including the Seletar Expressway, the Pan-Island Expressway and the East Coast Parkway, to improve the overall connectivity of the road network.
Once the highly anticipated integrated transport corridor is completed, its dedicated bus lanes – serving express bus services – are expected to reduce transport time from northern towns to the city by up to 30 minutes. Affected towns include Yishun, Ang Mo Kio, Woodlands and Sembawang
Parc Life is situated near the entrance of the North South Corridor, which will reduce traveling significantly
