Using Our Routes and Trails Safely
A pleasant experience in our parks and Park Connector Network (PCN) requires all of us to be considerate towards one another.
The Government has implemented the Active Mobility Act (AMA), which puts in effect recommendations by the Active Mobility Advisory Panel on cycling and the use of Personal Mobility Devices (PMD) and Power-Assisted Bicycles (PABs).
To ensure our parks and park connectors provide a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, please note the types of devices permitted on various paths, and to abide by the safety guidelines and onsite signage.
If you are riding a bicycle, motorised PMD or PAB…
- Ensure that your device is in good condition and in compliance with LTA’s regulations.
- Wear protective gear, such as a helmet, for your own safety.
- Ride in single file.
- Maintain a safe distance from other users.
- Slow down and give way to other users, especially at crowded or narrow areas, and within Attention Zones (red dotted lines).
- Remember that pedestrians have the right of way on pedestrian crossings.
- Observe and comply with “No riding” signs, if any.
- Keep both hands on the handlebars unless signaling. Signal in good time before you make a change in direction.
- Keep your device’s lights on when riding at night, to make yourself more visible to other users.
- Weave along the track.
- Overtake others when approaching places such as pedestrian crossings, corners and bends.
- Cycle/ride your device in areas where it is not permitted.
