Know All About Pan Island Expressway (PIE)

The Pan Island Expressway is Singapore’s longest and oldest expressway. The road is also the longest in Singapore. The 42.8-kilometer-long highway connects Tuas in the west to the East Coast Parkway at Changi Airport in the east (26.6 mi).

The Pan Island Expressway (PIE) was first envisioned by the Public Works Department in the 1960s as a part of road extensions to handle escalating traffic levels, and construction began in 1964. Jalan Toa Payoh, the initial portion, was finished by 1969. In the 1970s, work on the expressway’s remaining sections gets completed. In June 1982, the first highway was finished, connecting Jalan Boon Lay to the East Coast Parkway.

The Pan Island Expressway (PIE) gets rerouted and extended farther west to Tuas between 1991 and 1993. The highway could deal with a lot of traffic by the 1990s. In the 1990s and 2000s, the expressway and the interchanges along its path get enlarged to help with traffic congestion.


The Pan Island Expressway is Singapore’s longest expressway, measuring 42.8 kilometers (26.6 miles). The Tampines Expressway gets traversed by the expressway when it begins at a connection with the East Coast Parkway close to Changi Airport. It then takes a southwesterly bend through Tampines, Bedok, and Geylang. 

After crossing the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and taking a northwesterly bend, it turns west and follows Toa Payoh’s southern border. The highway leaves Toa Payoh along the northern side of Bukit Timah, bending southwest to connect with the Bukit Timah Expressway and then turning west again at Clementi Avenue 6. Before coming to an intersection with the Ayer Rajah Expressway at Tuas Road, the PIE continues along the northern boundaries of Clementi, Jurong East, and Jurong West.


There are 31 vehicle interchanges along the expressway, including those at Pasir Laba, Nanyang, Bahar, Tengah, Hong Kah, Bukit Batok, Toh Guan, Toh Tuck, Clementi North, Anak Bukit, Chantek, Eng Neo, Adam, Mount Pleasant, Thomson, Toa Payoh South, and Kim Keat.
