RSAF Exercise Torrent: Road Closure & Security Reminder

Gentle reminder about the road closures around Lim Chu Kang Road, which commence from 0800H on Thursday 10 Nov'16 for the conversion of the road to a runway. The road will be reopened at 1800H on Monday 14 Nov'16.

Plane spotters/curious members of the public are advised not to lurk around the area during Exercise Torrent as the vicinity of the improvised runway will be screened by Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) security personnel.

At Torrent VI in November 2008, some were briefly detained by the FDS (now known as the Force Protection Squadron).

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) will be conducting Exercise Torrent, an alternate runway exercise, from 10 to 14 Nov 2016 at Lim Chu Kang Road. This year's exercise will feature the RSAF's fighter aircraft conducting simultaneous launch and recovery operations from Lim Chu Kang Road and the Tengah Air Base runway. 
Exercise Torrent provides the RSAF the opportunity to enhance its operational readiness and hone its ability to deliver air power from our public roads. The RSAF works closely with other national agencies such as the Land Transport Authority of Singapore and the Singapore Police Force for this exercise.
Motorists and road users are advised to take note of the road closures in the surrounding areas starting from 8am on 10 Nov 2016 (Thursday) to 6pm on 14 Nov 2016 (Monday). The area will be barricaded to facilitate the conduct of the exercise. The public is advised to stay away from the area for safety reasons.
Members of the public may email to or call 1800-3676767 if they have further queries.
