What to Know About East Coast Parkway (ECP)

The East Coast Parkway is an expressway that runs along the southeast coast of Singapore. About 20 kilometers (12 miles), the expressway runs from Singapore Changi Airport east to the Benjamin Sheares Bridge south of the main island. The Changi Flyover, roughly one kilometer (0.62 miles) from the East Coast Parkway (ECP) eastern end, also links to the Marina Coastal Expressway and has an interchange with the Pan Island Expressway.

In contrast to other expressways in Singapore, the East Coast Parkway (ECP) acronym finishes with the letter “P” for “Parkway.” 

Previously, there was a direct connection between the AYE and the East Coast Parkway. After the Benjamin Sheares Bridge was closed and the MCE gets inaugurated on December 29, 2013, another expressway segment in the Marina South area was straightened and turned into an arterial road.

History

On July 30, 1969, preparations on the coastal route ease congestion at Golden Mile began. Nicoll Highway, Bras Basah Road, and Stamford Road interchanges get designed in great detail. A $35 million plan gets put in place to recover land off of Bedok on September 3, 1970, with the last phase beginning on October 7. The government agreed to recover roughly 125 acres of property on December 18, 1970.

To relieve peak hour traffic at the Collyer Quay area, the government started construction on a $300 million motorway on May 24, 1973, traversing the harbor to the breakwater line outside Clifford Pier.

Interchanges

There are 13 vehicular interchanges along the expressway, including the Tanjong Rhu, Tanjong Katong, Marine Parade, Laguna, Tanah Merah, and Changi Flyovers, Benjamin Sheares Bridge, KPE/MCE, Bayshore Rd, Siglap Rd, Marine Vista, and ECP Carparks H and F3.

Services for Emergencies

The Singapore General Hospital is in Outram, and there are two public hospitals close to this expressway: Changi General Hospital is in Simei.

East Coast Park: East Coast Parkway (ECP) One Of the Exit

Along Singapore’s southeast coast lies East Coast Park, a beach and park that includes Marine Parade, Bedok, and Tampines. It was inaugurated in the 1970s, when the Singaporean government had finished reclaiming land at Katong, stretching from Changi to Kallang, off the coast. It benefits these and other beach towns.

The largest park in Singapore, East Coast Park, is 185 hectares (460 acres) and is constructed of reclaimed ground. It has a beach where people may go swimming. Breakwaters surround and safeguard the beach.

There are BBQ pits, cabins, food stands, and services for a variety of sports in the park. At Bedok Jetty, guests may go fishing (Area F). The park’s circumference, which is more than 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) long, is lined by a bicycle and an inline skating track. The 12 km (7.5 mi) Coastal Park Connector Network, which runs along Tanah Merah Coast Road, connects it to Changi Beach Park.
