You'll soon be able to get to MRTs, shopping malls, and other key amenities more easily in towns like Bukit Batok, Jurong West, and Queenstown. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) says that new cycling paths will be built in these neighbourhoods, with plans to roll them out in phases from 2024 onwards. 

This is all part of LTA's Islandwide Cycling Network (ICN) programme, which aims to have 1,300km of cycling paths across Singapore by 2030. By then, LTA says that eight in ten HDB residents will be within minutes of the nearest cycling path.

Its plans for a more greener and more connected Singapore are already well underway. Earlier this year, LTA also announced new cycling paths in the city and city fringe – Bukit Merah, Telok Blangah, Kallang – and seven other neighbourhoods, namely, Geylang, Hougang, Kaki Bukit, Marine Parade, Potong Pasir, Sengkang, and Serangoon. To accommodate more people getting around on two wheels, LTA also plans to build 3,000 more bicycle lots at MRT stations by 2025. 

Sounds like there's no better time to invest in a bicycle. After all, it's a greener and healthier way to get around. If you already own one, then hop onto it to explore one of these scenic cycling routes around Singapore
