So where can we find these towns?
In our small but bustling city of Singapore, plans to turn Singapore into a cycling-friendly city are being carried out. By 2030, all HDB towns will have a cycling network.
So what does this mean? It means that a total of 700 km of cycling paths will be located all across the island.
Ang Mo Kio- A Model Walking and Cycling Town
The first “walking and cycling” town in Singapore is located in Ang Mo Kio, where on 9th July 2016, the first phase of the Ang Mo Kio Cycling network, which comprises of a 4 km cycling path that encircles around Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, 3 and 8 was officially opened. This thus empowers cyclists to have a safe and hassle free journey through the neighbourhood to Ang Mo Kio station, Ang Mo Kio Swimming Complex and the AMK Hub.
Upon completion in 2020, the cycling network in Ang Mo Kio will boast a network that spans 20 km, thus becoming the longest cycling network in any residential towns. Moreover, the cycling network will also feature a 2.6 km-long walking and cycling corridor that runs along the MRT viaduct between Yio Chu Kang MRT station and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.
Intra-Town Cycling Networks
As mentioned, by 2030, every HDB town will be equipped with their very own cycling network, where these networks will allow commuters easier access from their homes to MRT stations and bus interchanges and key amenities (e.g. shopping malls and schools) which are in the vicinity.
