The North–South Expressway (NSE) is the next upcoming expressway to be constructed by the LTA ( Land Transport Authority). It will be constructed next to the Central Expressway (CTE) and will be the eleventh expressway for Singapore. The New North-South Expressway (NSE) will help ease the congestion of the heavily utilised CTE.
In our previous entry, we posted a video on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on the Development of Greater Southern Waterfront. Now, let us share with you some of the planning that URA has for our future waterfront city.
Developments of the Greater Southern Waterfront
By 2027, the City Terminals (at Tanjang Pagar, Keppel and Pulau Brani) and Pasir Panjang terminal will all be relocated and consolidated at Tuas, leaving behind a thousand hectares of land. This humongous piece of land which is about 3 times the size of Marina Bay will be used for development of the future Greater Southern Waterfront.
Presently, the Bayfront and Marina Central area are still under development. But as we can already see, for the past few years, with new attractions such as the Flyer, The Helix pedestrian bridge and not to forget the iconic Marina Bay Sands coming up, the entire area has evolved to a waterfront promenade bustling with activities. Likewise, the Greater Southern Waterfront which will be built after the relocation of all the terminals will be the next waterfront city in Singapore.
