Use of PMDs and e-bikes in Parks and Park Connectors

The Government has implemented the Active Mobility Act (AMA) which puts in effect the recommendations made by the Active Mobility Advisory Panel on cycling and the use of Personal Mobility Devices (PMD).

Under the AMA, there is a mandatory speed limit of 15km/h for footpaths and 25km/h for PCN and cycling paths. Power-assisted bicycles (PAB) are also not allowed on footpaths.

While cycling and the use of PMDs are allowed on both footpaths and park connectors, for the enjoyment for all park users, we advise park users to stay on their designated paths.

Check out more information on the AMA.

 

Do you have a Personal Mobility Device (PMD)?

A pleasant experience in our parks and park connectors requires for all of us to be considerate towards one another. With the implementation of the AMA, we seek the cooperation of all park users to be aware of the park rules and look out for signage in our parks and park connectors.
