Surbana Jurong is happy to announce that we have won the LTA tender to develop a cycling path network and linear park in the northern part of Singapore. The park will be part of the Ang Mo Kio Cycling Network and will connect people from Yio Chu Kang MRT through Ang Mo Kio MRT to Bishan – Ang Mo Kio Park.

The proposed linear park is approximately 3 km long, and runs parallel to the North-South Line (NSL) MRT viaduct, with Yio Chu Kang and Ang Mo Kio MRTs as important nodes for public commuting. The park will eventually facilitate seamless connectivity for cyclists and pedestrians within Ang Mo Kio.

Our Sustainability team led the tender submission with strong support from our Infrastructure, Landscape and Business Generation teams.

“We are proud to be awarded this tender, what a timely Christmas gift for Surbana Jurong! The linear park will cater to both cyclists and pedestrians with landscaped nodes at various locations that serve as rest points with facilities and access to adjacent amenities that will enhance the cycling and walking experience. We also hope to incorporate sustainable features along the way, such as solar lighting and passive cooling solutions.”
