    3. Supply your email that can access Google MyMaps. I will share the map with you so that you can always access it via Google MyMaps.

    4. Hi. This is a great for cyclists. What does the different route colors mean, e.g. green, blue, black?

    5. Hi Rene, there are several layers in this map. Each layer represents a type of route. The routes are colored differently in each layer. Green for PCN, Red for On Road, Brow for Cycling Track etc. If you want to show only the layer, you can click on the icon on top left side of the map and uncheck all but the ones you want to see them. By the way, Black lines are for those paths under repair thus not accessible.

  2. Hi Jonathan, pls see picture at https://vgy.me/tl3L6b.jpg The overhead bridge has been replaced with one with ramps so there is no longer a need to 'carry across the bridge'. Also the PCN for that stretch has been re-routed. Pls see https://vgy.me/kmc1CT.jpg
    Tks for effort in updating the map. It has been very helpful. Cheers.

  3. Hi - great map! Couple of updates:
    1) The Tampines Park Connector opposite Tampines Eco Green is under maintenance. There's a simple and minor diversion.
    2) The Nan Da bike shop at 129 Joo Chiat Place is no longer there.
    Thanks for the map!

  4. Hi Jonathan, thank you for the hard work! There is a new coast to coast trail launched recently, but the trail at Ang Mo Kio is not updated. FYI :)

    1. Hi 情梦幻想曲, Coast to Coast Trail is a hiking trail. It is not marked as a PCN or Cycling track. Therefore it is not displayed in this map. However, I did nark those sections as PCN where it is actually marked as PCN. AMK section is already a PCN thus is already in the map. Sin Ming area is still foot path therefore is not marked. If you know any PCN or cycling path not shown in the map, please do specify them so that I could add them in the map.

    2. Should you want to cycle on Coast to Coast, I have another map showing the route. Please remember it is not designated for cycling as a number of sections are actually foot paths. https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1iBt7m_CZATkNbQAWLTG62wsG6KFmCSEO&ll=1.372803564254566%2C103.81867131683975&z=13

  5. Hi Jonathan , thanks for the amazing map! It has been extremely useful to me.

    Here are some corrections and updates:
    - There is a new PCN from Bedok Reservoir Carpark B to UWC Sea (east side of Tampines Ave 10). Strangely this PCN is not shown in any of LTA's maps, but it's there
    - There is a new PCN from Tampines Street 11 to Tampines Street 32 (southeast side of Tampines Ave 2)
    - Cycling path from Tampines Ave 5 to Tampines MRT (Via Tampines Ave 4) actually is in the south side of Tampines Ave 4, not the north side
    - PCN from New Upper Changi Rd to Bedok Town Park (via Bedok North Ave 1) is actually in the west side of Bedok North Ave 1, not the east side
    - There is a cycling path from Tampines Ave 9 to Tampines River (next to Tampines Eco Green) via Tampines Street 43, and the PCN between this point at Tampines River and TPE is open (the other side is still under construction)

    1. Edson, thanks for your valuable input. Added/Modified the paths. Your last point is not very clear as Street 43 does not ends at the river. From Google satellite, there is a foot path towards the river but there is a Playground in front of Street 43. I take it as the foot path becomes cycling path.

  6. Can the map be updated for Lornie Road? There doesn't seem to be a passable to way to get through the new highway as the bridge has no ramp.

    1. If you are referring to the new Coast to Coast route, it is not a cycling path. As such, it is not cycle friendly. It is not surprising that there is no ram on the bridge. Maybe some years later they will convert it into a full PCN with rams on the bridge.

      Lornie Highway is not for cycling on road as it is a highway. According to netizens, there is a footpath. Cyclist can go on footpaths. I have yet to explore this foot path thus has not mapped it. Since you seems to have done it, perhaps you could describe how you did it and I can plot it on the map.

    2. There is no no continuous footpath alongside Lornie Highway. Currently the best way to get across is to follow the footpath and cross Andrew Road, then get on the road and keep right in the direction of Lornie Highway. Right before merging onto Lornie Highway push the bike up the kerb and there's a footpath all the way to Kheam Hock Road for the PCN to Bukit Timah Road.

    3. In addition, cycling on the road is even more dangerous than before the highway is basically straight all the way and motorists are basically all going at 80-90km/h. The PCN along Macritchie is also quite difficult to use unless you're ready to push your bike up the bridge

    4. Thank you. It is not very safe to cross the road and ride on the right side. I will have to skip it. Sine it is a short on road path, it cannot go on the "on road" layer of the map too. I guess it is still better to go on the old Lornie PCN way. Hopefully they will include a ram in future.

  7. There's a new section of PCN that was built outside the MOM service centre that removes the need to backtrack to get to the Kolam Ayer PCN.

  9. I found yesterday a clearly marked and non-shared cycling path that starts at Jln Daud x Lengkong Tiga (near KembanganMRT, where there is a PCN at the canal) and makes half a circle around the HDB blocks, i.e. goes to Jln Daud x Lor Melayu, and then to Lor Melayu x Lengkong Tiga.

    1. Thank you Edson, added the path. Please see if it is correctly placed (i.e whether on the correct side of the road).

      Delete
    2. Hi Jonathan, the side is correct but:
      - It's a cycling path, not a PCN
      - It does not form a full circle because it doesn't have a link in the south between Lor Melayu back to the canal

      Delete
    3. Moved it to Cycling path and ends at junction Lor Melayu x Lengkong Tiga. From Google Maps, I though there is a marked path right across Lengkong Tiga going across Blk 111 and its has a marking on the floor but from Lor Melayu end it looks like ordinary foot path.

  10. Went yesterday to Tampines North, a whole new bunch of cycling paths (not PCNs) there:
    - The cycling path from Tampines Ave 6 (marked in the map) has been extended and goes all the way to Tampines Street 62 U/C (following Tampines Ave 11), changes to other side of the road, and then goes all the way to Tampines Ave 10 (passing in front of Reebonz and JTC Space @ Tampines North)
    - The Tampines Greenleaf HDB block at Tampines Ave 6 is now entirely surrounded by cycling paths
    - There is a cycling path at the entire south side of Tampines Street 61 (including the portion east of Tampines Ave 11 that currently ends at nowhere)
    - At the "unnamed road" (according to Google Map) at the west end of Tampines Street 61, there is a cycling path in the east side of the road, linking Tampines Ave 11 to Tampines Ave 9

    I would say Tampines North is a quite nice area for leisure cycling, full of contemporary-looking and well-landscaped new HDBs, and bright red cycling paths.

  12. Another minor update: in the Bedok Canal (i.e. the canal between Tanah Merah and Expo), the PCN is running on both sides of the canal between Bedok North Ave 4 and Upper Changi Road E.

    1. Thank you. Updated. Any idea whether the construction after Upper Change Road E to the South is completed. The East side of the carnal is also under construction at the same time in the same sector. They are said to be complete end 1Q 2019.

  13. I went there on Sat, and unfortunately, both sides of the canal after Upper Changi Road E were still fenced.

  14. Hi, just an update on the long-delayed Kallang River project between Bishan and Braddell Road.

    I called the contractor (via PUB) recently and they told me the new completion date is now Sep 2019. They also mentioned that the section between Bishan Park and Kuo Chuan has now opened up. I can confirm that as I went recently.
