150km Round Island Route Park Connector to begin development end of this year

Starting with 60km Coastal Adventure Corridor

The 60km Coastal Adventure Corridor is the first of three park connector corridors of the 150km Round Island Route (RIR) expected to start development works end of 2016.

The new corridor will cover the north-western, east and south of Singapore, stretching from the coasts of Punggol, Pasir Ris, Changi and East Coast Park flanking Rower’s Bay at Lower Seletar Reservoir Park and Gardens by the Bay East.

RIR will also feature wider 6m paths to provide more space for people to walk and cycle. More cycling bridges will be built as well so that cyclists need not dismount to cross. Nature lovers can look forward to a man-made island with wetland plantings for otters to build their holts at Sengkang Riverside Park.

In 2015, NParks celebrated a milestone of 300km of park connectors. NParks aims to have 360km of park connectors by 2020.
