Two stretches of dedicated cycling paths to open for use
Ang Mo Kio residents will be the first to make use of dedicated cycling paths that are marked in distinct red as works progress to turn Ang Mo Kio into a model walking and cycling town.
2. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has completed two stretches of dedicated cycling path along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. The two stretches of completed cycling path – which will be the first in Singapore to be marked in red – are part of plans to transform Ang Mo Kio into Singapore’s first model walking and cycling town.
3. LTA is opening the two completed stretches – which spans about 1.5km – for use from today onwards. LTA expects to complete and open a 4km loop around Ang Mo Kio Avenues 1, 3, and 8 in July.
4. Plans to transform Ang Mo Kio into a model walking and cycling town were first unveiled in December 2014 by LTA and the Urban Redevelopment Authority. Works started in December last year and LTA would like to thank the community for their continued support in turning Ang Mo Kio into a model walking and cycling town.
5. When fully completed, residents will be able to enjoy a 20km-long cycling path network, including a 2.6km-long cycling and walking corridor connecting the MRT viaduct between Yio Chu Kang MRT station and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. LTA will also incorporate features, such as pedestrian priority zones, traffic junctions enhanced with safety features and map-boards, to make it safer and more conducive for cycling and walking.
