SINGAPORE - By the end of the month, motorists will not be able to use Eunos Road 8 as a through road to Sims Avenue as a stretch of the road will be permanently closed, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on Thursday.
LTA explained in a media statement that the partial road closure is to facilitate the development of a commercial site at Paya Lebar Road under the Government Land Sale programme.
With the change, Eunos Road 8 will continue to serve existing and future developments in the area, such as Singapore Post, Paya Lebar Square and Paya Lebar MRT station.
Motorists from Eunos Industrial Estate may also continue using Eunos Road 8 to connect with Eunos Avenue 5 and Eunos Avenue 4.
However, they can use Eunos Road 5 to connect to Sims Avenue.
Traffic signs and notices will be put up in the affected areas to guide motorists and commuters.
Changes will take effect from July 30, 2014.
