"While the speed limit of the KPE tunnel can be raised to 80km/h, LTA will implement additional safety measures along the tight bends to enhance safety. These measures include reflective strips on tunnel walls, bend alignment lane markings (broader lane markings) as well as vibraline markings, to help guide motorists safely along the critical bends

 

However, the 70km/h speed limit will be retained near the Upper Paya Lebar Road (North bound) exit and the Airport Road (South bound) entrance due to the tighter geometry of one bend (affecting both carriageways). Signs and speed limit markings will be painted on the road surface to remind motorists to observe the lower speed limit of 70km/h along this bend."

What a joke. The entire KPE can be driven at 200km/h without even remotely skidding a car lor. I think they need to visit cameron and revise their definition of "critical bends", if they even know how to drive in the first place. Noobs, really.

200 km/hr is a little bit fast.

average about 130-140 for the full stretch [lipsrsealed] shouldn't have any issue with any B&B cars with good tyres. Except when passing the 3 cameras on each direction [lipsrsealed]

Dude, its possible, I mean ofc if the whole KPE is devoid of traffic la. The point I'm trying to make is, there's nothing that remotely resembles a "tight geometry" in any part of the tunnel. The layout is extremely simple, no way to skid unless you're on almost bald tyres maybe.

Yeah B&B cars should do it a little slower, KPE is pretty bumpy. If it was smooth, maybe can push 150?  [sly]

I dunno...never tried

[drivingcar] Always stick to below 80km/hr when see the 2 grey boxes which are about 2-3m apart, always on the left wall of each direction near the ceiling and usually see them right after the speed warning lights. [lipsrsealed] .

You don't get it. The point is not about what's the fastest the whole expressway can be covered, but how to minimise accident while not unduly sacrificing traffic flow.

 

If everyone can drive through at 200km/h safely then fine, but the truth is very very few can or else why are the F1 or GP drivers paid so much.

 

Anyway, talk is cheap, 200km/h is when everyone gives way to you? You have police escort so you can take any lane you want? Get real. What's the rush anyway, you in a hurry to reincarnate?

 

One day hopefully your brain will catch up with your mouth.

I believe KPE 80kph throughout does not pose a problem. How much difference is there between 70kph and 80kph..

 

having 2 speed limits will only causes phantom jam and a good excuse for  ERP increase to collect more money.

 

If safety is really a concern, align all to be 70kph lor...

Doesn't mean you drive a faster car, you can travel at 70kph on a clear lane 1 with a train of cars behind you...

Nope.
Unless the average speed detector comes out, then it will strictly those boxes.
Avg speed most probably will read the IU.
Entry time and exit time, using the distance apart to gauge the speed.

Chill bro, think he only put it as a figure of speed, not really the actual speed.
Many here understand the concern on reckless speeding, but don't get personal.

last nite lorry carrying workers sped in KPE in between spd cams... i fashed high beam that driver and all the workers turned back and looked!!  the driver continued his speed.  i thought lorry spd limit is only 70?  or less?

 

if he has to brake hard at such spd, the workers will become ten pin bowling!!!

during peak hour traffice, cars entering KPE via ramps etc jam big time coz all ramps merge two lines into one near where they join KPE!!!   this is really man-made jam (man refers to LTA tunnel designer!!!)............. very difficult to maintain 2 lanes through out the ramps in the design/construction???   or just their trick to create jams??

i'm not a fan of the average speed thing.

 

speedsters if they really want to drag, they can speed all they want and road hog at the end of the tunnel.. unless they use a combination of both speed cam plus average speed detector.

yesterday I have a bus running up and tail gating me one lane 2 at SLE when I look at my speedo it was already at 100kph...

 

even better example of AMK Ave 5 under CTE bridge.. at the junction you split more lanes.. right after the junction you merge them...


Doesn't mean you drive a faster car, you can travel at 70kph on a clear lane 1 with a train of cars behind you...

 

that is what lane 2 is for..

Dude, its possible, I mean ofc if the whole KPE is devoid of traffic la. The point I'm trying to make is, there's nothing that remotely resembles a "tight geometry" in any part of the tunnel. The layout is extremely simple, no way to skid unless you're on almost bald tyres maybe.


 

Yeah B&B cars should do it a little slower, KPE is pretty bumpy. If it was smooth, maybe can push 150?  [sly]

when we talk about speed limit, it is based on using one lane with its own lane width, right? No point using one car on the whole expressway as it is not engineering.
