Nature lovers now have a new nature trail to explore!

A 4km stretch of the Rail Corridor has reopened following closure for restoration works in 2019.

The reopened Central Stretch of the Rail Corridor runs between Hillview and King Albert Park MRT Stations and now has eight new access points.

It is part of the 24km long Rail Corridor, a former railway line that used to run from Woodlands to Tanjong Pagar.

The trail has been made to be inclusive and accessible for all visitors, while retaining the Rail Corridor’s lush greenery and railway heritage.

This includes new and improved access points, an enhanced trail that is porous and drains water quickly, and refurbishment of existing railway features.

Over 1,500 native trees and shrubs were also planted to restore a belt of native forest in the area.

Aside from lush natural landscapes, look out for heritage structures such as the refurbished bridges including two iconic conserved truss bridges at Upper Bukit Timah Road and Bukit Timah Road.

More details on the Rail Corridor can be found on NPark's website.
