The update covers over 6,800km of routes and directions for a safer and pleasanter ride.
Google Maps has released a new cycling navigation feature, which spans across 6,800km of cycling routes and biking directions in Singapore.
This is the first time a Southeast Asian country is enjoying this update.
Thanks to around 500 km worth of data provided by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the National Parks Board (NParks), the feature also includes an island-wide network of linear green corridors linking major parks and nature areas for cyclists to enjoy the greenery during their journeys.
The new cycling feature also includes step-by-step cycling directions with dedicated cycling paths and recommended bicycle-friendly roads across Singapore, as well as seek out cycling routes to help users avoid expressways and tunnels for their safety.
With this new feature, cyclists can explore different cycling routes, track their trip progress with detailed navigation, receive real-time updates for times of arrival, and find out the elevation of the route to stay focused on the road.
Riders are encouraged to send in any feedback via the “Send feedback” tool.
The update will be available on both desktop and mobile for Google Maps users in Singapore from Nov 8.
