Expressways of Singapore

The Tampines Expressway (Abbreviation: TPE; Chinese: 淡滨尼高速公路; pinyin: Dànbīnní Gāosù Gōnglù; Malay: Lebuhraya Tampines; Tamil: தெம்பினீஸ் விரைவுச்சாலை) is a highway in the north-eastern fringe of Singapore, joining the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) near Singapore Changi Airport in the east with the Central Expressway (CTE) and Seletar Expressway (SLE) in the north of the island.

The original part of this expressway started at the end of Tampines Road near Lorong Halus and continued eastward to join the PIE, and mainly served Tampines and Pasir Ris. This part of the expressway was completed in June 1989. Later extensions north-west were made to connect the TPE with the CTE and SLE so as to serve the newer residential areas of Sengkang and Punggol and provide a continuous expressway link between the northern and eastern parts of the island. The expressway was opened in August 1996 after the Lorong Halus junction was completed.
