CONSTRUCTION OF MARINA COASTAL EXPRESSWAY (MCE)
The dual five-lane, 5km long Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) will be the tenth expressway in Singapore, a key element of the strategic island-wide road network to support the long-term growth of Singapore. The underground east-west transport link runs between the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE), the East Coast Parkway (ECP) and the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), with direct connections to the Marina South and Straits View areas.

With several upcoming developments such as the Marina Barrage, the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, the Sail @ Marina Bay and the Marina Bay Financial Centre in the vicinity, the MCE will cater to the projected increase in traffic volume generated by the high-density developments in the Marina Bay area and serves as an essential transport link from the Marina Bay to the rest of the island.

Details of Project
The MCE's total route length includes a 3.6km long road tunnel, two ventilation buildings and 13.1 hectares of land reclamation. It will run through segments of reclaimed land as well as a 420m section that runs below the seabed of Marina Bay. It also includes 3 interchanges with KPE/ECP, Marina Boulevard and Central Boulevard, and the AYE.

Land Reclamation
A total of 13.1 ha of land reclamation is being carried out at Marina East (4 ha) and at Marina Wharf (9.1 ha) to facilitate the building of the MCE. Parts of the MCE will run along reclaimed land.

Conversion of Part of the ECP to a Major Arterial Road
As part of the overall land use plan in the Marina Bay area, the MCE will replace part of the ECP at Marina Centre, Bayfront and Central subzones, and allow for this part of the ECP and its adjoining slip roads at Bayfront and Central sub-zones to be realigned, facilitating the seamless development of the Central Business District (CBD). The ECP at Marina South area will be realigned and converted to a major arterial road to serve the Marina Bay area.

Progress Update
In January 2009, LTA awarded the last of six major civil contracts for the construction of the MCE. In addition, LTA has also awarded seven major contracts for the provision of various Electrical & Mechanical (E&M) and Cladding systems required for the road tunnel. In total, 13 major contracts have been awarded. In February 2012, LTA awarded the civil contract to build the at-grade roads in Marina South.

Construction of the tunnel and ventilation building have been completed. Land reclamation at Marina Wharf and Marina East has been completed. Testing and commissioning of systems have been completed. Trial operations are in progress.

Completion Date
The MCE is slated to open on 29 December 2013. The construction of the MCE is part of the government's commitment to improve the Singapore's land transport network in the next 10 to 15 years.
