Directions to The Green Corridor
On the 30th of June 2011 the last train departed from Tangjong Pagar, Central Business District to Johor Bahru in Malaysia. On this day, the train connection operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad or Malayan Railways Limited was closed and relocated to Woodlands, north of the island, making way for the creation of a nature sanctuary which came to be known as The Green Corridor.
Since then, the wooden planks of the train rail have been removed entirely, transforming the over 26-km long stretch that leads all the way from Tanjong Pagar up to Woodlands into an amazing corridor through nature.
Walk or bike along a mix of lush forest and grassland areas, cross over the famous Bukit Timah Railway Bridge, explore the historic Bukit Timah Railway Station built in 1932 and enjoy views of scenic kampong style houses and small scale vegetable farms.
To start the trip, there are three main entry points we recommend:
- Bukit Timah, side of the road just before the Bukit Timah Railway Bridge
- Bukit Timah Hill, just after the bridge on the way up to the parking
- Railmall along Upper Bukit Timah, just opposite of Cedele near the bridge
Make sure to bring along water, mosquito spray and sunscreen. The trail is well maintained and a good outing for families with children. It is not accessible for baby strollers or small children bikes. Also note that some parts of the trail are sometimes muddy, so good shoes are highly recommended.
