Punggol Park Connector to Lorong Halus Wetland

Newest park connector to be opened at time of this writing. Is the 1st time i went to Punggol. A friend & i rode in from beside Riviera LRT station. I would say this park connector is perhaps the most scenic one in S'pore after the Ulu Pandan portion flanking the Faber estate.
Bridge of Lorong Halus Wetland in the distance. The wetland is rather small & i find it a disappointment. Don't expect to cycle unless you have knobby tires since is gravel path along the wetland. Notice the 'bulb plants' in the foreground which light up at night.

Rather disappointed is only partially done as from what i see from the completed route display the part to the north overseeing the Johor Straits is the more exciting portion. That block of building in background is the dam creating more reservoirs.
Looking back from bridge at the path we rode from. Isn't it nice to have a bike to cover distance faster & skip the dull portions of the park connector while sightseeing?

Closed up view of bridge connecting to Lorong Halus Wetland. Why can't Nparks just do an interim patch up on the abandoned railway bridge at Ulu Pandan connector beside the expressway instead of waiting 1-2 years? They just barricade it for fear of people getting hurt. For goodness sake that's a frieght train bridge! Others including myself have feedback to Nparks & it just fell on deaf ears.

Road leading in to Lorong Halus Wetland. Quiet place- there isn't any road divider markings!


  1. Hey there!

    Do you know if the park connector to Lorong Halus Wetland is completed already?


  2. Hi, Thanks for visiting my blog. I was there 3 weeks ago with a group night ride. Punggol side PCN to Halus wetland is completed. It is linked via the bridge.

    The PCN portion north of the bridge is still under construction.

  3. Halus Bridge to Punggol Point cycling path completion in early September 2011 (info from URA). By which time the entire Punggol PCN cycling path would also be ready. Route: Sengkang Park -Punggol East-Sungei Serangoon-Punggol Promenade Riverside-Punggol Point (jetty)-Sungei Punggol (Marina Country Club)-Sengkang East.
