ENHANCING CONNECTIVITY ACROSS THE NORTH
The North is now more connected to other areas across Singapore, with new links and public transport services shortening travel times. The expansion of cycling networks is also set to boost the mobility of residents by making it easier to travel within and between towns, as well as offering an accessible, cost-effective and sustainable mode of transport.
