The Kranji Expressway (Abbreviation: KJE) in Singapore connects from the BKE in Bukit Panjang and travels south-west to join with the PIE in Jurong West. Construction of the expressway started in 1990 and was completed in 1994.[1] The expressway is also the second shortest of all the expressways at about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi).


The new expressway was announced in 1990 because it probably pass through the estates in Jurong, Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang, called Kranji Expressway.

It was completed in six stages. One of the most difficult jobs in laying the expressway was the clearing of large granite for which 300 kg of explosives were used. It had five different construction contracts. The entire network of linking roads came about by the construction of a highway connecting PIE at Hong Kah and BKE at Zhenghua. It was inaugurated on 4 March 1995 by Lim Hng Kiang.[2]

It replaces some roads - Hong Kah Road, Hong Kah Lane, Jalan Beka, Jalan Pelawan, Jalan Jelawi, Jalan Dedali, Lorong Merawan, Lorong Kerubut, Jalan Beras, Jalan Bungar, Jalan Buey, part of Jalan Sabit, Lorong Puyu, Lorong Dengkes, Jalan Ara, Jalan Chapa, Lorong Jelubu and Kadlin Lane.
