An elevated section of an upcoming expressway will be the first land transport infrastructure here to be made terrorist-proof.

The section is a viaduct of the North-South Expressway that will go over Chong Pang Camp.

The military camp, at the junction of Gambas Avenue and Sembawang Road, is home to the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) units armed with anti-aircraft guns and missiles.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has invited consultants to come up with design solutions to neutralise bomb threats from the viaduct that will go over the north-eastern corner of the camp. These could be from explosives on board vehicles, or explosives planted on parts of the viaduct.
