More works planned to enhance connectivity

NParks stated that it will continue to enhance the recreational experience for the community.

These include the introduction of wayfinding, enhanced landscaping, new habitats, and the planning of new cycling bridges along the Round Island Route (RIR).

A continuous 150km park connector, the RIR will be Singapore’s longest recreational connection when complete.

It will be part of a 360km island-wide network consisting of recreational routes with park connectors and trails.

Such island-wide routes are part of efforts to provide more opportunities for the community to explore and move between parks and nature areas, NParks said.

“It also contributes towards enabling every household to live within a 10-minute walk of a park by 2030, as part of our City in Nature vision for Singapore,” the board added.
