The Outer Ring Road System (ORRS) is a network of major roads that forms a 'ring' along the outer areas of the city. It provides an alternative route for motorists to travel between the east and west of Singapore without going through the city. Hence, it helps to reduce the traffic volume on city-bound roads.
The ORRS network includes Queensway, Farrer Road, Adam Road, Lornie Road, Braddell Road, Bartley Road, Eunos Link and Still Road. It is extensively linked to expressways and other arterial roads, allowing motorists to get from one traffic route to another easily.
The roads along the ORRS are being upgraded to provide smoother travelling. The upgrading started in 1994 at two junctions along Farrer Road and is carried out in stages at other locations to minimise disruption to traffic.
The road upgrading works along ORRS at Farrer Road, to 4 lanes along Holland and Adam bound were completed and opened to traffic on 21 November 2010. The pedestrian overhead bridge along Farrer Road, in front of Block 2 and Block 6A were completed and opened to the public on 29 September 2010.
