New Sentosa Gateway Tunnel Opens

The new sentosa gateway tunnel has opened on 24th April 2017 and it has improved the traffic on the bridge by leaps and bounds. You can read more about the new tunnel and its easement routes from the LTA website.|

The one-way Sentosa Gateway Tunnel will allow motorists leaving the resort island to connect directly to Lower Delta Road and Keppel Road. It is expected to ease congestion at the busy traffic junctions at Sentosa Gateway, Telok Blangah Road, Kampong Bahru Road and Lower Delta Road, especially during evening peak hours and on weekends.

The tunnel, which took nearly 10 years from concept to completion, cost $200 million to build.

In view of this, and for fire safety reasons, it is open only to cars and motorcycles. Buses, goods vehicles and any vehicles higher than 3.5m are not allowed in the tunnel, and have to use existing surface roads.
