The Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced new cycling path networks in Woodlands, Toa Payoh, Choa Chu Kang today, as well as cycling paths linking Geylang and Queenstown to the city. The expansion of cycling networks and related cycling infrastructure in Singapore will encourage active mobility as a mode of transport, and improve accessibility and connectivity for Singaporeans. LTA will call for tenders later this year to build these cycling paths.
Upcoming Cycling Paths in Residential Estates and Connections to City
2 The new cycling paths in Woodlands will add about 20km to existing cycling paths and the Park Connector Network (PCN), making Woodlands one of the largest intra-town cycling networks. Residents will be able to seamlessly connect between four MRT stations, homes, schools, shopping malls, key amenities and main industrial estates in Woodlands.
3 A 7km cycling network will be built in Toa Payoh. Residents will enjoy greater connectivity between their homes and the Toa Payoh town centre, Braddell and Toa Payoh MRT stations and bus interchange and other key amenities in Toa Payoh. Existing infrastructure such as bus stops will be re-designed to better accommodate cyclists and pedestrians.
4 An additional 12km of cycling paths will be added to Choa Chu Kang’s cycling network. LTA is also studying the feasibility of widening the existing footpath along Choa Chu Kang West Flyover to a 2.5m wide shared path. This will improve cycling connectivity between Choa Chu Kang town and Yew Tee town, which are currently separated by the Kranji Expressway (KJE).
5 LTA will also be constructing new cycling paths in Geylang (150m long) and Queenstown (2.3km long). These will connect to existing PCNs to allow residents in Geylang and Queenstown to ride directly to the City Centre.
6 Please refer to Annex A for more details on the new cycling paths.
7 Estimated to complete in the next five years, these new cycling paths will add on to the 120km of cycling paths across the island and nine cycling towns implemented to date. LTA will continue to work with relevant agencies to plan and develop the cycling path networks so that there will be a cycling path network in every HDB town by 2030.
Design Consultancy Study to Strengthen Active Mobility Connectivity in Jurong Lake District
8 LTA will be calling a design consultancy tender later this year to study how to enhance the walking environment within Jurong Lake District (JLD) and improve its active mobility connectivity to neighbouring towns. This will complement the existing 15km cycling path network in JLD and upcoming cycling paths in Taman Jurong that are expected to be completed in 2020. These efforts will help make JLD, which is being developed as Singapore’s second Central Business District (CBD), a truly car-lite district. Please refer to Annex B for a map of the JLD design consultancy study area.
 These four MRT stations are Marsiling, Woodlands and Admiralty MRT stations on the North-South Line (NSL), and Woodlands South station on the future Thomson–East Coast Line (TEL).
 The nine implemented cycling towns are Tampines, Sembawang, Changi-Simei, Pasir Ris, Yishun, Punggol, Ang Mo Kio Phase 1, Jurong Lake District and Bedok.
