Toa Payoh presents a first in multi purpose transport...
The only sunken river water highway in existence, oh boy is this going to make the mayor of Ang Mo Kio mad. Following a non stop 72 hour session at the head office of the Toa Payoh Innovation and Transportation Department (TPITD), they decided that the best way to beat the traffic jams and the seasonal flooding is to build a combined sunken river drainage system and elevated road. Imagine Malaysia's Smart tunnel outdoors! You can see the results below.
Start of the WTE leaves the leafy suburbs ~ (Excuse the pun)
WTE passes to the left of the MRT maintance and depot yard.
Aerial overview of TWE, those fussy Sims not happy with having a regional first transport solution they display their unhappiness at having to move more than 5 metres by displaying no job zots!
Due to the huge success of the MTR corporation the local government of Toa Payoh allowed the MRT corporation to build a covered service bay for their EL-Trains.
No to be outdone the MRT department decided to use the Smart drainage canal idea and build a new line called Centre Link EL (CLE). The line is entirely above ground build in the drainage canal.
And finally a sneak preview of the area around the TWE and CLE line. This former marsh land has been drained and is currently being turned into a sports hub.
Huge big thanks to the ARS Sunken River team and of course to the NAM team for producing such excellent tools.
