The long track which boosts of rich habitat of natural greenery covers 26KM from the former Tanjong Pagar Station to Woodlands.

Were You There?
It was on 31st January 2016, Rail Corridor Run saw some 8,000 runners raring to pounce on the wet and muddy trail for the last time before some parts along the stretch were closed for construction works – a great memorable experience for our trail runners then!
Fast forward, enhancements will begin in the central region of Rail Corridor where the former Bukit Timah Railway Station is located with three main themes introduced: ‘Heritage & Culture’, ‘Biodiversity & Greenery’ and ‘Recreation’ to rejuvenate meaningful experiences for trail seekers and nature lovers alike.
