It’s all glowing reviews for the latest development of the Rail Corridor, stretching from Choa Chu Kang to Upper Bukit Timah
When Coldplay sang about lights guiding you home, well, take this Chris Martin – it’s now a reality in Singapore. The Rail Corridor is an initiative by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to create unique public spaces for different heartland communities in Singapore. The latest development? A 400m-long track between Choa Chu Kang and Upper Bukit Timah that glows in the dark.
While it all might seem exciting and illuminating, it’s still currently a “test track” and will undergo a two-year trial stage to determine the best surface material for use that will make the Corridor safer and more accessible. It’s also been done elsewhere around the world, for aesthetic and artistic purposes, as well as practical reasons.
The fastest way to get on the track is from Downtown Line’s Bukit Panjang station. The track has been open for trial from 12 July so if you get a little restless at night, you know where you can head to. Remember to take pictures!
