New cycling paths, links to town from Geylang and Queenstown planned


SINGAPORE: Over the subsequent five years, Singapore’s cycling infrastructure may be expanded with new cycling direction networks in Woodlands, Toa Payoh, Choa Chu Kang, Geylang, and Queenstown, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced on Tuesday (Mar 26). LTA said woodlands can have one of the essential intra-metropolis biking networks, with about 20km added to its present paths and the Park Connector Network (PCN).

The new tracks will join citizens among the Marsiling, Woodlands, and Admiralty MRT stations at the North-South Line and Woodlands South station on the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line. Accessibility between essential facilities and commercial estates will also be more significant.

LTA said a 7km cycling network might be built in Toa Payoh. Residents will experience “greater connectivity” between their houses and the Toa Payoh city center, Braddell, and Toa Payoh MRT stations. Bus stops within the place could be retrofitted to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians better.


LTA said 12 km will improve Choa Chu Kang’s biking community. The authority is examining widening the footpath along Choa Chu Kang West Flyover to a 2.5m wide shared path to join the metropolis to Yew Tee, presently separated by the Kranji Expressway.

LTA brought that new cycling paths in Geylang (150m long) and Queenstown (2.3km lengthy) might be linked to existing PCNs, allowing residents within the areas to trip without delay into the town. The authority said all biking paths currently deliberate are preliminary and subject to feasibility studies. It will continue to work with the relevant companies to ensure a cycling direction network in every HDB city with the aid of 2030. In a news release, the authority said it’d call for tenders to build the trails later this year. The LTA may even call for a design consultancy to inspect the improvement of strolling and energetic mobility connectivity inside Jurong Lake District and its neighboring cities.
