A new green corridor named the Bukit Timah-Rochor Green Corridor will connect Singapore’s three national gardens once it is completed in the years to come! The corridor will run parallel to the Bukit Timah Canal and allow cyclists and pedestrians continuous access between Jurong Lake Gardens, the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and Gardens by the Bay. Plans are also on the way to extend the corridor to Kallang Riverside Park. The first phase, a 1.4km elevated linear park that will run above the canal between Bukit Timah and Dunearn roads, will begin construction in 2021.
This linear park will have a riverine forest theme featuring all kinds of plant species like Saraca or Neram. Visitors, including users of the Coast-to-Coast Trail, can look forward to a unique walking and cycling experience along the linear park. There are also look-out points and shelters will be located along the sky park to allow visitors to rest and enjoy the view.
More green for Singapore! We love that all the national gardens will be connected in time to come and also Jurong Lake Gardens too. More options for outdoor walks, strolls, activities for the whole fam.
Everyone! It's inclusive and accessible for all.
Connecting the proposed linear park of the Green Corridor is the Rail Corridor and part of the southern half have been reopened. Totaling around 4.2 km, the reopened stretches now feature a more inclusive and user-friendly track. This makes it more stroller-friendly and also accessible for wheelchair users and the elderly. If you are interested in contributing towards the enhancement of the Rail Corridor can sign up online at www.nparks.gov.sg/railcorridor/be-our-friend.
