Pan Island Expressway 1

The Pan Island Expressway (Abbreviation: PIE) is the oldest and longest of Singapore's expressways. Currently, it is also Singapore's longest road. It extends along the length of the island, connecting Tuas in the west to Singapore Changi Airport in the east. Its length is 42.8 kilometres (26.6 mi). Construction of the PIE started in 1964 and took place in four phases. The first phase involved widening the stretch of Whitley Road from Mount Pleasant Flyover to Thomson Flyover, Jalan Toa Payoh, Jalan Kolam Ayer, and Paya Lebar Way, and replacing all the traffic light junctions on these roads with grade-separated interchanges. Those stretches were completed in 1969. Similarly, a second phase was constructed in 1969 and was completed in 1975 from Whitley Road (Mount Pleasant Flyover) all the way to Jalan Anak Bukit. Today, it is still one of busiest road system in Singapore.
