Expect road congestion due to major construction projects
It may be less than a smooth ride for commuters using roads in Rochor, Newton, Orchard, MacPherson, Geylang and Thomson over the next eight to 10 years. Construction of five major infrastructural projects will take place over the next decade, and of these, two or more will be converging in these areas from next year until 2022 or so. These are transport and power projects that involve deep excavations, which means commuters can expect road diversions and traffic disruptions. The projects are: the Downtown MRT line, Singapore Power's (SP) Transmission Cable Tunnel, the Thomson MRT line, North-South Expressway, and the Eastern Region MRT line.

Over 11kg of 'Ice' worth $1.68 million seized from 2
About 11.2 kg worth of 'Ice' with a street value of more than $1.68 million, was seized on Wednesday from two different individuals at two different locations. The first haul of 5.5kg was from a male Indonesian national on his way out of Changi Airport. The second haul of 5.7kg was from a female Vietnamese national at Tuas Checkpoint. Both these suspected drug couriers had stashed the drugs in secret compartments of their luggages, according to a statement from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) on Thursday afternoon. The suspects were both detained by ICA officers, who then handed them over to Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) officers for further investigations.

Vettel wins Singapore Grand Prix for 2nd consecutive year
Sebastian Vettel won one of the most thrilling editions of the SingTel Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday night, the world champion making the most of Lewis Hamilton's early retirement to enhance his own championship chances. The German, whose win at the Marina Bay street circuit was his second of the season, benefited from pole sitter Hamilton's gearbox failure at the start of Lap 23. Hamilton's team-mate Jenson Button was second for McLaren, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso third. The result meant a reshuffle of the front runners in the drivers' championship. Alonso remains in the lead on 194 points while Vettel has moved up to second, 29 points behind the Spaniard. Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen, who was sixth, remains in third place on 149 while Hamilton has dropped down to fourth on 142. The championship now moves to Japan.
