Port Gateway Study, Singapore

Vertix Asia-Pacific Pte Ltd (Vertix) have conducted the transport master planning for the Port Gateway Study project, including Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA), design of transport network and transport microsimulation model.

Project Description

The Tuas Terminal Gateway (TTG) is the entrance area to the mega-port in the Tuas area of Singapore. TTG forms the main entrance to the port and houses all security and admin related facilities which all traffic passes through.

The main objectives of the project are to study the traffic generated by the development to aid with the transport network design without compromising security and etc.

Our Services

We have worked closely with Ong & Ong Pte Ltd team together to plan the various processes, including the port entry gates, Singapore Customs facilities, Immigration Checkpoint Authority, and a large container repackaging facility. These processes required careful planning to ensure the sequences met relevant agency requirements while allowing efficient traffic operations.  The project included the following tasks:

  • Extensive coordination with all authorities, designers, and agencies to properly plan the facilities;
  • Sizing of the gate facilities and gate quantum;
  • Sizing and layout of the ICA and SC facilities
  • Develop microsimulation models to test the various port facility capacities, general arrangement of the processes, and overall efficiency of the internal traffic flow. Microsimulations included the port gates, the container repacking facility, and the internal port roadway network


A safe and efficient access for all users through recognizing the transport and security demand of TTG.

Traffic design recommendations were adopted by clients. Ongoing recommendations are made to evaluate iterations of the design.
