[SGP] Singapore | road infrastructure • Expressway

Never seen expressways of singapore in this forum, nevermind. Here is some:

A Section of the Ayer Rajah Expressway



Singapore Longest Expressway: Pan Island Expressway one of the section in Singapore oldest residential estates



One of the section of Bukit Timah Expressway, it is quite new but traffic is high during peak hours too. And also in my own opinion, it is the most beautiful expressway in singapore.

Like much, but stretched out.

I want to see more pics, too, but can you rezize them to 640x480 or so? IMO they're more informative if they can be viewed all at once without having to scroll all over the place.

It looks pretty nice with all those greenery and (palm) trees. Not so much urban blight

Asphalt looks more aesthetic. I can understand the thoughts of some who say the US concrete boxes adds to the urban blight idea. Singapore is doing a good job this way, aswell as most European/Asian countries with expressways.

Well not much people in Singapore bothers about expressways or public transport just chasing their singers, players etc... I also do not have a decent camera and I seldom go out so no shots please, I try to get one if I can but it would take years.

Yes. It's very small.
That's why it's so easy to maintain it.
