Cyclists in the east can now travel to the city in seamless fashion, thanks to a new cycling path along Guillemard Road.

Constructed as part of the Geylang-City Active Mobility Corridor, the 100m-long path links the existing Geylang and Sims Avenue Park Connectors. 

Prior to this, cyclists travelling between both connectors had to share a narrow footpath with other users.

The new path in Guillemard Road is one of two improvements to the east-west inter-town cycling connectivity, previously announced by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in 2019. The other path, intended to connect Queenstown to the city, is currently in the works. 

Both routes were originally expected to complete in 2020, but construction was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of a nation-wide effort to make Singapore a connected cycling-friendly city, cycling path networks have also been established in nine HDB towns to date, including Taman Jurong and Tampines.

On its website, the LTA said it intends to expand the cycling path network to 800km by 2023 and a further 1300km by 2030.
