In February 2017, the Tuas viaduct which is also part of the Tuas West Extension project opened to motorists.
The viaduct is also the first integrated road and rail viaduct in Singapore to enhance connectivity in Tuas by allowing motorists to bypass traffic junctions along pioneer road. The Tuas viaduct also benefits motorists as users of the viaduct would be able to avoid traffic lights which also means reduced travelling time.
