Railway to be open to public for two weeks (AsiaOne)

Friday, July 01, 2011

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has agreed to allow the public to access and trek along the railway tracks between July 1st and 17.

For two weeks the public will have the opportunity to trek along the entire line of railway tracks except for some localised areas.

After July 17, a three kilometre stretch from Rifle Range Road to the Rail Mall will continue to be open to the public till 31 Jul 2011.

The SLA also advises that members of the public should exercise caution when walking along the tracks as some areas are narrow and rough.

The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and Bukit Timah Railway Station will be closed temporarily to facilitate the moving out of the furniture and equipment by the KTM and its tenants.

Minor works will also be carried out at the Bukit Timah Railway Station and the railway crossings at Kranji Road, Sungei Kadut Avenue, Choa Chu Kang Road, Stagmont Ring and Gombak Drive. Members of the public should avoid these work areas which will be cordoned off.
