A new bridge linking mainland Singapore to Resorts World at Sentosa is expected to open later this year.
Resorts World said it should receive traffic ahead of its grand opening.
The 710-metre bridge is expected to serve some 15 million visitors a year once the resort is fully operational.
After completion, the traffic flow to Sentosa will be realigned. The three lanes are capable of handling some 6,000 vehicles per hour.
But the infrastructure also has a dual purpose. Under the bridge, it carries utility pipes for power, telecommunications lines and fresh water.
