    CTE Exits Closure

    Early morning (6.20am) whilst driving to work, had been hearing over radio (90.5) repeatly that closure of CTE exits on 5th May 2014 (today) at Merchant Road exit and Yio Chu Kang exit to SLE from 7.00am to 11.59pm. (Northward) Never hear any reason for the closure of the exits. Tried login to LTA web and Onemotoring but no details of the closure. KNN, at least give us the reason for the closure over the radio lar ... If one will to miss the announcement, and upon arriving at YCK exit, has to make a big 'U' turn at Upp Thomson Road junction and back to SLE again ... Any brothers know the reason for closure ?
  5. Anyone knows where this exit/entrance coming from?? Above ground is the Clemenceau Road, Fort Canning area. Was there actually a initial plan to utilise this exit/entrance but abandon it due to certain reasons??
  6. Yesterday, was behind this Hyundai Santa Fe along CTE (North) around 3:30pm. Traffic a bit jam as people are leaving work and some more no ERP. After a while, noticed that the car's brake lights are ALL TOTALLY NOT WORKING. I was quite annoyed, I mean, one or even 2 brake lights not working still ok but all three. Really feel that the fella is an inconsiderate driver. THANKFULLY, after a while, the fella changed lane and went on his "jolly" way. Must say he is also an excellent lane changer. Sorry, no pics or vids, a bit chui gong lan pa song, I know, but there is how I can see it. HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!
  7. yesterday evening peak hours went home via CTE/SLE. TRAFFIC SUPER SMOOTH LIKE WHITE CHICKEN. seeeee beh song. there were the good old days i heard? Any old timers drivers can comment?
  8. An eight-car collision on the Seletar Expressway (SLE) on Sunday night injured five people, including one child. The accident occurred at about 9.20pm, said a spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force. It took place along the SLE heading north, just after the Braddell Road exit. The extreme right two lanes were cordoned off by police, creating a massive jam leading back to the city centre that persisted past midnight. Four adults were taken by ambulance to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and one child was taken to KK Women's and Children's Hospital. All were conscious. It was not immediately clear how serious their injuries were. When The Straits Times arrived at the scene at 11.30pm, several cars including one taxi were seen with their bonnets and rears crumpled. They were towed away shortly after.

  9. At about 8.45am, I was driving inside the CTE tunnel towards SLE when I thought how come the traffic was slow. Then I saw a van hogging in the middle lane, then switched to fast lane. Immediately after the tunnel, this van switched on hazard lights and purposely pulled brake and trying to stop a sport car behind him (can't tell if it's a Z4 or MX5). Then the van driver got off the vehicle. Damn, out of no where stop in the fast lane, very inconsiderate. Anyway, anyone sees what heppen next?

    FF7 @ CTE

    come across this on stomp, which I think the "playing" got out of hand http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/singaporeseen/this-urban-jungle/drivers-race-recklessly-on-cte-nearly-causing-one-of-the-cars-to-flip
  11. A 23-year-old man was injured after his motorcycle collided into a van in front of him. The accident took place at about 1.15pm along the Central Expressway towards the Ayer Rajar Expressway, near the Kampong Java Tunnel. It caused a traffic jam which lasted for more than an hour. The motorcyclist who was bleeding from his face but still conscious was taken to the Singapore General Hospital. When The Straits Times arrived at the scene, his motorcycle had been tipped over and was balancing vertically on its front. There were no other casualties, and investigations are ongoing.

    ERP revised. Yay or nay?

    The Land Transport Authority (LTA) recently announced some good news with regards to Electronic Road Pricing rates recently. Firstly, the much derided night time ERP on the Northbound CTE has been abolished. From now on, the ERP gantry on the Northbound CTE before the Pan Island Expressway will operate until 8pm, like every other ERP gantry, instead of the ridiculous 10.30pm. And now, there is joy for those who take the same expressway Southbound towards town in the morning, as the LTA has announced reduced rates for the gantry before Braddell Road in the morning, going down from $2 to $1 between 8 and 9am. But is this really good news? On the surface, yes it is. I mean, any breaks that drivers get when it comes to cutting down driving costs has to be savoured and cherished, because they don't exactly come often. But there has been doubts raised already with regards to the reduction in ERP rates, especially in the evening. Some people forsee a return to congestion during that time, as motorists flood the CTE once again once the gantry has been turned off after 8pm. But others argue that it is their perogative as to whether they want to be stuck in a jam when going home anyway. Personally, it doesn't affect me directly as I don't travel on that particular route often, but I think it's yet another example of the Government's indecisiveness when it comes to traffic control. It appears that Singapore wants to go back to the days where cars are prohibitively expensive, but usage costs are reduced. Whether this will actually work to reduce congestion remains to be seen, especially with our island's population now nearly reaching double of what it was during the last time this happened (namely the 1990s). But it's certainly going to be interesting to see how the Government deals with Singapore's transport problems in the next few years ahead.

    Demystifying the Great CTE Jam

    Amongst all the congestion on our roads, one particular expressway stands out for being more congested for far longer hours than any other road. Every driver knows that the CTE is notorious for its jams that can last way past 8pm. And despite whatever measures taken, like increasing ERP or undertaking road widening, the CTE remains pretty much a misnomer of an expressway. That is, an expressway with non-express speeds. Ask around and there will be many theories proffered by different road users to explain the great CTE congestion. One popular theory (especially among my biker friends) is that the jams are caused by CTE's numerous inclines. And Singaporean drivers, being frugal with their fuel, do not accelerate more upon coming to an upslope. What happens is a "wave effect"; where you see a clustering of vehicles slowing down on the upslope and a gradual spacing out of cars on the downslope. This slowing down effect is compounded over the number of vehicles and hills such that eventually, some drivers have to tap on their brakes to avoid rear ending the car in front. This further compounds the effect and eventually creates jams when there are sufficient number of vehicles. A slightly less complicated theory derives from the fact that CTE serves a particularly populous part of Singapore - Ang Mo Kio. Add the fact that the population density is high (substantial HDB estates as opposed to landed housing) and tends to be doing decently well (HDB prices are generally higher in Ang Mo Kio) and you have a huge pool of car owners who need to use the CTE. The sheer numbers of drivers cause the congestion. The final theory I have come across attributes the congestion on CTE to its expressway design. Advocates of this theory will point out that in certain stretches of the CTE where jams are the worst, there are just too many entrances and exits in quick succession. As vehicles switch lanes to exit or enter the expressway, they have to brake or will cause others to brake or slow down. This disturbs the smooth flow of traffic and causes congestion. This is compounded by the fact that there are quite a few entrances or exits that coincide on the expressway - meaning that vehicles enter onto the expressway in a lane shared by those trying to exit the expressway. This makes entering or exiting the expressway more difficult and aggravates the disruption effect of vehicles entering or exiting the expressway. My personal take is that I favour the last theory. This is based on my personal observations of how traffic flows on the CTE as well as the fact that AYE is also the most congested at the stretch where there are 3 exits in quick succession (Clementi Ave 6, Ave 2 & Clementi Road). What is your theory on the CTE jam?

    The CTE nightmare

    If you have read the papers a few weeks ago, you'd know that there was a massive jam on the Central Expressway and that it was caused by a major accident between a motorcyclist and 2 lorries resulting in the biker being killed. Now I'm not just talking about accidents on the CTE, it just happened by coincidence that such a tragic accident occurred a few days ago from when I'm writing this article, but I must say that the expressway is utterly terrible. I was caught in that jam on that fateful day. All I knew was that lanes 1,2 and 3 were completely shut and that only one lane was open for use. And from the papers it says that traffic didn't normalise till around 6 which is roughly 3 hours from when the accident occurred. But when does traffic REALLY normalise on the CTE? you go out on a Saturday morning and it's jammed before the Braddell exit. You head towards the SLE in the afternoon and it's jammed before the PIE exit. You can even try going back towards the SLE at 11 at night and it's jammed. So how can this expressway even be called an expressway in the first place when it's like driving through a slab of butter. Well, there has been a lot of effort to attempt to ease the congestion, but the simple fact of the matter is, it's not working. Yes you can add ERP gantries to suck our cashcards dry of credit and we are still crawling along at snail's pace. You can widen the road to 5 lanes, that shows some improvement in the flow of traffic but give it a few weeks, it's congested as usual. The main problem in my opinion is that the exits and entrances into the expressway are too close together which causes the bulk of the bottle necks and jams. Hopefully, the new lane markings and allocations will allow traffic to flow at a steadier pace and that all our taxpayers money will be put to good use!
