The first phase of Singapore’s longest cross-island trail, a 62km route stretching from Changi to Tuas, will be completed by 2025, said the National Parks Board (NParks) in a media release on Thursday (Mar 4).
Named the Coast-to-Coast (C2C) Southern Trail, it is one of four new recreational routes that will open to the public in the next few years.
This is part of larger efforts to achieve Singapore’s vision of becoming a “City in Nature”.
Apart from the Southern Trail, there will be a 25km-long C2C Northern Trail, from Khatib Bongsu to Sungei Buloh, linking up the Central and Sungei Buloh Nature Park networks.
The 18km Eastern Corridor connecting East Coast Park to Pasir Ris, going through Bedok Reservoir, will be ready by the last quarter of 2021.
Meanwhile, the 34km Central Corridor from Woodlands to the city centre will be opened in phases and is due for completion by 2030.
