Guide to Know About Kranji Expressway (KJE)

From the Bukit Panjang Expressway (BKE), the Kranji Expressway in Singapore links to the Jurong West Expressway (PIE), traveling southwest. The expressway was built from 1990 to 1994, with construction beginning that year. In addition, the Kranji Expressway (KJE) is roughly 8 kilometers long, making it the second-shortest of all expressways (5.0 mi).

History

The announcement for the new highway came in 1990. Before concluding close to the Kranji neighborhood, it travels through the Jurong, Choa Chu Kang, and Bukit Panjang housing estates.

Six stages led to Kranji Expressway (KJE) completion. The Big granite removal, which required 300 kg of explosives, was one of the expressway’s most challenging tasks. There were five construction agreements for it. The building of a highway joining PIE at Hong Kah and BKE at Zhenghua gave rise to the network of connecting routes. Lim Hng Kiang gave it a formal opening on March 4, 1995.

A number of roads are replaced, including Hong Kah Road, Hong Kah Lane, Jalan Beka, Jalan Pelawan, Jalan Jelawi, Jalan Dedali, Lorong Merawan, Lorong Kerubut, Jalan Beras, Jalan Bungar, Jalan Buey, a portion of Jalan Sabit, Lorong Puyu, Lorong Dengkes, Jalan Ara, Jalan Chapa, Lorong Jelubu, and Kadlin

Features

There are six flyovers in the KJE. Starting from Tengah Flyover, it connects Brickland Road at Lam San Flyover (Exit 5) and Choa Chu Kang Way at Choa Chu Kang West Flyover (Exit 4). And Choa Chu Kang Drive at Choa Chu Kang East Flyover (Exit 3), Woodlands Road at Yew Tee Flyover (Exit 2), and Bukit Timah Road at Gali Batu Flyover (Exit 1).

The particular asphalt compound that resembled tar as a surface material to reduce the danger of sliding was one of the KJE’s distinctive features. In 1994, KJE was one of the first few roads with this innovative surface, which cost S$6.1 million. Later, roads get equipped with this anti-skid function. On March 4, 1995, Lim Hng Kiang, the acting development minister, officially opened the Kranji Expressway.

Residents of Jurong, Bukit Panjang, Choa Chu Kang, and Bukit Batok can access Kranji Expressway. The expressway offers Malaysians traveling from Johor to work in industries in Jurong and Tuas a quicker alternative because it links Jurong to Woodlands. Access between lower-level highways and the expressways is made possible via slip roads, which get constructed.
