Rail corridor section from Hillview MRT to King Albert Park MRT reopens
The section, which spans around four kilometres, has opened after closing for refurbishment in Jul 2019.
Nature lovers and hikers will have a new yet nostalgic place to visit, as the National Parks Board announced that a stretch of the historic rail corridor reopened today (Mar 22).
The section, known as the central rail corridor, spans around four kilometres from Hillview MRT station to King Albert Park MRT station.
The pathway, which was closed for refurbishment in Jul 2019, lies between two conserved truss bridges that were constructed in 1932.
While enjoying the luscious views of the corridor, you can look forward to seeing some wild animals, including the scarlet-backed flowerpecker and Great Helen.
The Rail Corridor, which spans 24 kilometres, was part of the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) railway line connecting Singapore and Malaysia. It stopped running in 2011.
The stretches of the south rail corridor undergoing improvement are scheduled to reopen at the end of this month. By the end of 2021, visitors can expect a continuous 24km trail from Kranji MRT station to Spooner Road.
Enjoy some time with nature at this historical Singapore landmark!
