The cycling network will connect three MRT stations - Tampines, Tampines East and Tampines West – to homes, schools, food centres and other amenities, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a news release.

The plans are similar to what has been done for Ang Mo Kio, Singapore’s first walking and cycling town.

It has been reported that in Ang Mo Kio, there has been a 30% rise in cycling activity at some areas where 4km cycling path was built.
