Infrastructure is at the heart of what we do. We build new paths, roads and community spaces to provide people with a safe and conducive environment even as we improve existing infrastructure to accommodate different types of users.
We are committed to expanding our cycling path network, to have around 1,300km of cycling paths islandwide by 2030. With this, all HDB towns will have cycling path networks connecting commuters from their homes to MRT stations, bus interchanges and nearby
shopping malls and schools. In some areas – for example between Ang Mo Kio and Bishan – these cycling paths join up, connecting one HDB town to another and facilitating inter-town commutes.
Cycling paths are coated with a skid-resistant material and coloured terracotta red for better visibility. At potential conflict areas, “SLOW’ markings, speed regulating strips, and signages have been installed to alert cyclists and active mobility device users to slow down and look out for pedestrians.
Along with a denser network, we are also building more bicycle parking spaces and bicycle crossings to improve safety and convenience. Where feasible, paths behind bus stops will be widened to channel cyclists behind bus stops and facilitate safer path sharing between cyclists and pedestrians.
We are also working with private developers to incorporate more bicycle parking and end-of-trip facilities, like showers and lockers, in their developments.
To create a more liveable and inclusive environment, we are exploring potential locations where suitable road spaces can be converted into footpaths, cycling paths and bus lanes. Some of these road repurposing works have been implemented at Kampung Admiralty, Havelock Road, and the Civic District. We engaged Residents and nearby businesses during the process of implementing these projects to ensure that any permanent infrastructure would meet the communities’ needs.
