Expressways of Singapore

The Bukit Timah Expressway AH2 (abbreviation: BKE; Chinese: 武吉知马高速公路; pinyin: Wǔjízhīmǎ Gāosù Gōnglù; Tamil: புக்கிட் தீமா விரைவுச்சாலை; Malay: Lebuhraya Bukit Timah) is a highway in Singapore that starts at the Pan Island Expressway in Bukit Timah and travels north to the Woodlands Checkpoint and the Johor–Singapore Causeway.

Before the Kranji Expressway was completed, BKE was the shortest expressway in Singapore, at about 10 km (6.2 mi). This expressway is a six-lane dual carriageway, with three lanes on either side. In 2003, the LTA began work to convert a section of the expressway, from the intersection with the Kranji Expressway to that with the Seletar Expressway, into a four-lane dual carriageway. This was completed in mid-2005.
