One of the longest green stretches in Singapore, the Green Corridor is a 24 km long uninterrupted spread of lush greenery and a seemingly endless expanse of woodlands. Repurposed from the lands of the former rail route between Singapore and the Malay Peninsula, it runs from the old Tanjong Pagar Rail Station in the south all the way to the Woodlands Checkpoint in the north. It is considered one of the best walking trails of Singapore, steeped in heritage, nature and sunshine amidst its unimpaired paths.
Towering trees, dense forests, thick bushes and gorgeous flowers await those who wish to embark upon this beautiful, verdant stretch. The terrain of the trail transitions between rugged, muddy and rocky. A 10 km running route from the Tanjong Pagar Rail Station to the Bukit Timah Rail Station forms the course for the Green Corridor Run, an annual race in Singapore and one of the most anticipated-running events in the city-state. The popularity of this event arises from the sheer scenic beauty of the route, covered in tall grass, gravel and clay with the charming woodlands on both sides, with zero interruptions from traffic.
Walking through this picturesque trail, also known as the Rail Corridor, takes one down the history lane of the rail heritage of the land. The National Parks Board is in the process of mapping out a heritage walk within the Green Corridor, with 4 historical milestones being their key points of interest. These milestones will explore the origins of the railroads that connected Singapore and Malaysia, a World War Two battle site, and stories behind iconic structures like Beauty World. The Green Corridor is a wonderfully tranquil location positioned within the bustling urbanopolis of Singapore.
