NParks is accelerating the implementation of the Park Connector Network (PCN), with another 42km of park connectors to be completed in FY2009.
To date, about 112km of park connectors have been constructed. Our aim is to develop a 300km island-wide network of green corridors by FY2015.
With the acceleration, the Western Loop which will link regional parks in the west is targeted for completion by end 2009.
The Northern Loop, which will bring users to several parks in the north, is expected to be ready in end-2010. The Eastern Loop, also known as Eastern Coastal PCN, was completed in 2007. For the convenience of PCN users, seven bicycle rental kiosks or ‘PCN Pitstops’ have been set up in five parks along the way so that users can rent and return bicycles without having to backtrack.
The Eastern Coastal PCN is the longest of seven loops planned.
