That means that anyone who is going to Sentosa please take shots. Construction has already started for quite some time and it would be cool is a nerdish way to see pylons being constructed on the bridge.

You guys got see the recent complaint letters against sentosa? One of which was the complains that the monorails were over-crowded, to which the Sentosa management tried to say that it will be solved with the new trains. Yeah rite. That complainant was trying to get form the terminal to underwater world. Since when does the new line go there??

Wah I can just feel the crowd reading that article.

On a lighter note, at least now I know how many Sentosa Monorail trains they have, 11! That info cannot be found anywhere on the net.

Not feasible to build viaduct above CTE


I THANK Mr Lim Soon Heng for his letter, 'CTE traffic jams: Elevated carriageway will ease congestion' (ST, Nov 15). Mr Lim proposed constructing an elevated viaduct on top of the Central Expressway (CTE), which will work in a tidal manner - towards the city in the morning and towards Ang Mo Kio and Yio Chu Kang in the evening.

We have studied proposals to improve the traffic conditions along the CTE. As the CTE corridor is largely built up, any improvement proposals for the expressway would be constrained by the impact on existing developments.

We had previously studied a proposal to build elevated viaducts on top of the CTE between certain junctions. However, this would involve building structures and supporting columns that require extensive acquisition of private land.

In addition, as parts of the CTE in the city are underground, it may not be possible to provide an elevated viaduct into the city, as this may result in a bottleneck within the city tunnels. Due to traffic and safety considerations, it may not be feasible to build an elevated viaduct on top of the CTE.

I thank Mr Lim for his feedback and suggestion. We welcome readers to call 1800-CALL LTA (1800-2255 582) if they have other feedback or suggestions.
