The congestion woes in Changi, where there are long lorry queues, is likely to ease soon.

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan, noting that MPs had raised this issue in Parliament earlier this year, said that the congestion was caused by the transportation of excavated materials to the Changi Staging Ground.

The area is more congested than usual with lorries as a number of construction projects with deep excavations are in progress at the same time, wrote Mr Khaw in his blog.

Lorries carry excavated materials from various construction projects around Singapore to Changi. The materials are later transported to Pulau Tekong to be reused for reclamation.
