The exhumation of graves at Bukit Brown Cemetery will take place towards the end of this year to make way for construction of a dual four-lane road that will link Adam Flyover and MacRitchie Viaduct.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has already received 1,263 claims for affected graves since details on the exhumation were announced last year.

The agency will be contacting the next-of-kin of affected graves who had registered their claims to make arrangements for exhumation. 

The new road aims to reduce traffic congestion along Lornie Road and the PIE during peak hours, as well as support the rise in vehicle numbers. It is expected to be ready by end-2017.
