Expressways

Expressways are special roads that allow motorists to travel quickly from one urban area to another. All of them are dual carriageways with grade-separated access. They usually have three to four lanes in each direction, although there are two-lane or five-lane carriageways in some places. There are ten expressways, including the new Marina Coastal Expressway, which was completed in December 2013, and another one under construction since 2017, the North - South Corridor (formerly known as the North-South Expressway)

Construction on the first expressway, the Pan Island Expressway, started in 1966. The other expressways were completed in stages, with the Marina Coastal Expressway being the most recently completed, in 2013. Today, there are 165 km of expressways in Singapore.

The Singaporean expressway networks are connected with Malaysian expressway networks via Ayer Rajah Expressway (connects with the Second Link Expressway in Malaysia) and Bukit Timah Expressway (connects with the Skudai Highway via Johor - Singapore Causeway).
