That's the ruling by ICA when they cross the border to Malaysia.......the "Three-quarter Tank Rule". Singapore registered motor vehicle must have at least three-quarter tank of motor fuel inside their vehicle motor fuel supply tank when departing Singapore.

This is to prevent full tank re-fuelling at cheaper prices across the border....which is also an offence because foreign-registered car without Msian ID are not allowed to refuel in Malaysia. Petrol prices subsidized in Malaysia by the Govt are meant only for its citizens.

oh Gosh! Really? ...one second it is Singapore...
I was there 10 years ago. I have to admit. City is clean, safe, modern... on the other hand there is so many forbidden signs for sitting on steps, chewing gums, spiting.... now something for drivers? If people obey all these rules that must be a perfect society. The question is if they really do obey?

This sign is a product from Malaysian requirements, not Singaporese legislation.

@rakcancer That's why many Singaporeans I saw are quite complaining with their strict style of rules

Why? Do Malaysians afraid of selling to much gasoline to Singaporeans? Not enough to supply demands? Kind of strange rule.

The Malaysian government subsidizes fuel. They do not intend to subsidize fuel for foreigners. The fuel price in Malaysia is about € 0.49 per liter.

Ah I see I see.

So they will check the fuel gauge of your car each time you enter the border checkpoint?

Marina Coastal Expressway

Marina Coastal Expressway to Open on 29 December 2013

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will open the new Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) from 9am on Sunday, 29 December 2013.

2. The 5km-long MCE, Singapore’s tenth expressway, will connect the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) and the East Coast Parkway (ECP) in the east to the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) in the west. 3.6km of MCE is built as a tunnel, including a 420m section underneath the sea bed.

3. A five-lane expressway in both directions, MCE will link motorists directly to the heart of the downtown at Marina South through the new connections with Central Boulevard, Marina Boulevard and Maxwell Road.

4. With traffic currently using the ECP now channelled to the MCE, the stretch of the ECP west of Benjamin Sheares Bridge will be converted to a major arterial road. The stretch of the existing ECP after Central Boulevard will be expunged. These changes will free up valuable land space in the city centre currently occupied by the ECP and allow for future development of the downtown at Marina South. This will also enhance the overall quality of the downtown at Marina South as a live-work-play precinct.

5. A new arterial road, Sheares Avenue, will bring traffic from the ECP directly into the CBD and connect with Central Boulevard and Marina Boulevard. Please refer to Annex A for a map of MCE and its key connections.

I expected a visible view of sea from the tunnel

anyway the tunnel is smooth, the asphalt really good until i cant hear my car tyre noise (zero level) and probably best road in singapore as this road very even and straight unlike in KPE and CTE very uneven.

Very wide 5 lane expressway, thumbsup for the LTA

Why are the road markings so short? It looks like 2 meters stripes with 3 meters space between. That's no size for a motorway!

I was watching this video (realtime) which looked a bit timelapsed due to the road markings being so short for an expressway.

The speed limit is 80 km/h.

What mcarling said. The speed limit is 80km/h (50mph). In the UK lane markings are similarly more frequent when speed limits are as low. If they were longer and spaced further apart, 50mph would feel much slower. The timelapse effect makes the speed feel faster, except large scale features still pass by quite slowly.

Pan Island Expressway

Upsized PIE Ready to Serve

LTA Completes Widening of Pan-Island Expressway
between Clementi Avenue 6 and Adam Road

1. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed the widening of the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) between Clementi Avenue 6 and Adam Road.

2. Works to widen the 5.8km stretch of PIE started in July 2011. Besides adding one lane to both sides of the expressway, the project also included the structural expansion of the existing Eng Neo, Chantek and Anak Bukit Flyovers.
Full press release: http://app.lta.gov.sg/apps/news/page...1-00a3dd633b2c

I think this means PIE is now eight lanes wide between Clementi Avenue 6 and the BKE, and ten lanes from BKE to Adam Road?
