ROAD diversions along the busy Upper Thomson Road will take place from this month, as construction of the Thomson Line moves into full swing.

Trees along the centre divider of the road were either cut down or transported elsewhere in February and March, with hoardings set up in their place.

The Upper Thomson station will be built underneath a stretch of Upper Thomson Road between Thomson Plaza and the Church of the Holy Spirit.

In a dialogue with local residents on Saturday, Land Transport Authority (LTA) staff said they are aware of the heavy traffic during peak hours. They will erect more signboards about the diversions and send out newsletters to inform residents.
