Singapore 1979

Expansion

Modification and extension of the western end of the expressway started in 1992 to connect it to the Kranji Expressway which was being built at the time. A new 8 km (5 mile) section was built. It forked from the existing PIE at Hong Kah Flyover, intersecting the Kranji Expressway at Tengah Flyover and ending at the Tuas Flyover with the Ayer Rajah Expressway. The 2 km (1.2 mile) section of the old PIE from Hong Kah Flyover to Corporation Road was downgraded to an arterial road and renamed Jurong West Avenue 2.

As the amount of traffic using the KJE and PIE to Jurong Industrial Estate increased, the Land Transport Authority upgraded the stretch of the PIE between Tengah Flyover and Tuas Road to a four lane dual carriageway from a three lane dual carriageway. The work started in March 2004 and ended in March 2006[2].

This is the express way. Saingapore si the only metropolitian city of Asia without traffc jams, they built so many express ways. In the middle of the express way as and ont eh sides you see flowers, like orchids, it just looks unreal being at a highway!
all kinds of nice appartment buildings are built everywhere.
This expressway goes on to an airport, a new one Changi Airport where i landed, wich is reclaimed of the sea, just as HK , Osaka and Tokyo have.
The airport is smaller though then amsterdam airport, wich is actually an airport for all of the Netherlands and the 4 main cities that are located around it in the wider area.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore_Changi_Airport

Singapore Changi Airport (IATA: SIN, ICAO: WSSS) (Malay: Lapangan Terbang Changi Singapura; simplified Chinese: 新加坡樟宜机场; pinyin: Xīnjiāpō ZhāngyÝ Jīchǎng; Tamil: சிங்கப்பூர் சாங்கி விமானநிலையம) or simply Changi Airport, is a major aviation hub in Asia, particularly in the Southeast Asian region, and is the main airport in Singapore. Located in Changi on a site of 13 square kilometres (5.0 sq mi), it is about 17.2 kilometres (10.7 mi) north-east from the commercial centre.[2]

The airport is operated by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and is the home base of Singapore Airlines, Singapore Airlines Cargo, SilkAir, Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia Airways, Valuair, and Jett8 Airlines Cargo. It is a hub for Garuda Indonesia and a secondary hub for Qantas, which uses Singapore as the main stopover point for flights on the Kangaroo Route between Australia and Europe, the later being the largest foreign airline to operate from the airport with over two million passengers handled annually[3] As of April 2008, there are about 4,340 weekly flights operated by 80 airlines to over 188 cities in 59 countries. An important contributor to the Singapore economy, 13,000 people are employed at the airport. The airport accounts for over S$4.5 billion in output.

In 2007, the airport handled a record 36,701,556 passengers, a 4.8% increase over the 2006 fiscal year.[4] This made it the 19th busiest airport in the world and the fifth busiest in Asia by passenger traffic in 2007. In addition to being an important passenger traffic hub, the airport is one of the busiest cargo airports in the world, handling 1.89 million tonnes of cargo in 2007.[4].

Beautiful pics, Chimpon, but would you mind to put them in one post next time? That is a lot easier to look at.

ERP is the Singapore toll road system. Each vehicle is fitted with a wireless receiver and a cashcard. The card is debited when you drive through the gate, no need to slow down. You have tolls around the Central Business District (CBD), on the expressways and even some public car parks.
