Missing to run or walk along the Rail Corridor between Holland Road and Commonwealth Avenue?
Sadly to tell you that the closure of this section of the Rail Corridor will be extended to the second quarter of 2018, which is initially planned to be reopened in the fourth quarter of this year. Yet, the positive note from PUB is that this extended closure is for enhancement works to make the corridor more inclusive and accessible.
According to the national water agency, the extended closure also covers the completion of pipe laying works for a section of the 22km Murnane Pipeline to meet future water demand in the city area.
Another good news to our active readers, “the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) will strengthen the sub-base of the trail along this southern half with suitable materials to make it more resilient to wet weather and use. The trail surface will also be improved with a material comprising a mixture of earth from the Rail Corridor and cement to retain the rustic character of the Rail Corridor trail,” PUB said.
The above works will take six months to complete, and according to the announcement of URA and the National Parks Board, visitors can enjoy continuous connectivity along the entire 24km Corridor by 2021!
So let’s look forward to seeing a new look of the Rail Corridor trail! Meanwhile, check out some other nice trails in Singapore here:
