150km Round Island Route

26 Feb 2012 – Park Connectors & Parks

A new loop linking four parks in Punggol and Sengkang was launched on Saturday by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean… DPM Teo also announced plans to develop a 150km Round Island Route to link more than 3.5 million residents along the route.


From my understanding this will still takes some years to complete even when over 60% are already completed. The Round Island Route (RIR) will be a seamless green corridor that goes all round Singapore, linking up many major natural, cultural and historical attractions to our parks, park connectors, and intra-town cycling networks.


How many days to walk it? And will there by any chance that the 150km RIR be in the agenda if still kicking around?? Or do I really want to walk 150km on hard concrete in this weather in my late 60s??? Perhaps it will be time to purchase a bicycle then! Was told by a cyclist neighbour that it will take him 9hrs to complete 150km.

Do not count the chickens before they are hatched, as the saying goes. First let’s start on HKG 100km MacLehose which is more in the nature, well, at least many parts of it! Life is such an adventure, so much to look forward to and so many blessings to be thankful for.

Harry from HKG said that they had to cancel their soccer game yesterday as the field was wet and partly flooded. It has been raining almost for a week and more rain in the forecast for the next few days. Let’s hope that it will dry out by 2 Mar!
