SINGAPORE: Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will continue to make further improvements to traffic flow at the new Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) over the next few days.

In a Facebook posting on Tuesday, Mr Lui said the LTA will put out more advisories through multiple channels to guide motorists on the best way to reach their destinations.

It will also give motorists more information on how far the next exit or turn-off is and which lanes to take, to avoid last minute weaving action that slows down traffic.

Mr Lui added that LTA will continue to monitor the traffic situation along MCE and put in more resources to ensure that traffic will be smooth on January 2, when most people return to work and to school.

He noted that traffic was smoother on Monday evening and Tuesday morning, partly helped by the lower traffic volume and motorists becoming more familiar with the MCE. - CNA/nd
