Singapore is set to have its own ‘low line’ version of New York’s famous High Line, but 10 times as long, with 24km of disused rail corridor to become a ‘Lines of Life’ park that will cross Singapore from north to south.
Japanese firm Nikken Sekkei has been chosen by Singapore’s Urban Redevelopment Authority to further refine its design proposal with a masterplan filled with footpaths, cycle paths and lush plant-filled parks, plus 122 access points that connect back into major roads, transport hubs and new urban development.
The park will run from Kranji in the north to Tanjong Pagar Railway Station in the south.
The park will have a 10 nodes where visitors can access water stops, toilets and showers, bicycle hire and cafes. The park also connects with Bukit Timah Nature Reserve for camping and eco-activities.
