IMHO, it is a flop.
Spend $4billion (right?) to smoothen traffic on expressway but cause greater jams elsewhere.

At the juncture exiting from MCE, towards Central boulevard, the traffic light placements are inefficiently located. And the lack of proper planning and a yellow box cause these major jams.

(You don't need a scholar to envisage that.)

Problem is scholars usually cannot envisage that...

Aiya... no need to be so negative.

I take the MCE to work and back to connect the ecp and aye. It is a lot faster than b4. The confusion has lessen a lot and will improve with time.

The view will never be the same ever again....
 
Re: Singapore's first undersea road - Marina Coastal Expressway - set to open on Dec

I agree that things will improve along the way, that was less of my point.

My questions were more towards:
1) Was there really a need to have MCE? (I have not seen any significant economic benefits... so far.)
2) Our road planners can't foresee obvious choke points and the causes?

a1 The MCE was constructed to free up land for the new downtown. Much of the land has not been developed yet except certain sections like where ORQ and Asia Square and MBFC are at.
a2 The choke points were a result of motorists not knowing that ECP no longer connects to the AYE (even though it was publicised. )

The real economic benefit is freeing up the entire piece of prime land that was separated by the ECP which is estimated at around $50B.

Economic benefit, true and not true. Hopefully URA does not flood the market with these new land parcels.

Already, asset values will likely be tested by significant supply quantum from projects such as the KTM-exchanged MOne and others like V, SBF, Oxley etc.

In the event a deflation of asset values in the CBD occurs, coupled together with a rise in cost of leverage, it could spell a remake of problems for the businesses.

Too much uncertainty right now to say. For the long term, however, it is definitely a good thing for the country.

Thanks, but to me, they are mere justifications (we heard).
Good luck.
