Rail Corridor

Rail Corridor

Singapore’s Green Artery

This 24-kilometre “green corridor” passes through almost the entire length of Singapore, providing an oasis away from our urban environment.

In 2015, we invited design professionals to develop a Concept Master Plan and Concept Proposals for nodes along the Rail Corridor. The aim is to make the Rail Corridor highly accessible, connected and relatable to the community.

There will be plenty of room to walk, jog and cycle, with activity points and public spaces that easily connect homes, schools and businesses. With its sheer length and reach, the Rail Corridor is going to be a highly unique and inclusive public space that can accommodate a wide variety of activities. Take in the myriad of authentic natural landscapes, which have been left undisturbed through the redevelopment work on the area.

There’s also plenty of history found there – the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and Bukit Timah Railway Station have been gazetted as a National Monument and conserved building respectively, while two steel truss bridges spanning Bukit Timah Road and Dunearn Road, as well as Upper Bukit Timah Road, have also been gazetted as conserved structures.
