SINGAPORE - The Land Transport Authority has completed the Sentosa Gateway Tunnel and will open it on April 27 at 10am.

The Sentosa Gateway Tunnel is a one-way road tunnel that connects outbound traffic from Sentosa Island directly to Lower Delta Road and Keppel Road.

The LTA said the tunnel would help alleviate the current congestion experienced at the busy at-grade traffic junctions at Sentosa Gateway, Telok Blangah Road, Kampong Bahru Road and Lower Delta Road, especially during evening peak hours and the weekends.

The project was delayed for over a year. It was supposed to be completed in 2015.
