Stephen Caffyn Landscape Design (SCLD) are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Landscape Architectural consultancy for the first phase of the Round Island Route (RIR), a 150Km recreational trail for pedestrians and cyclists around Singapore.
Round Island Route (RIR), Singapore
The Round Island Route is a proposed 150Km long recreational walking and cycling route that circumnavigates Singapore. The RIR will connect existing rural, industrial, civic, residential, recreational, urban, natural, cultural, and historic locations with exciting new features, facilities and elements.
"The Round Island Route will allow us to embark on journeys to look at Singapore in new and wonderful ways, as it passes through popular recreation nodes and also the less seen and explored corners of our island" - Mr Teo Chee Hean, Deputy Prime Minister.
Coastal Adventure - RIR Phase 1
Phase 1 focuses on the "Coastal Adventure’ Corridor which is approximately 60km in length and will be the first corridor of the RIR to be developed.
The population catchment of the Coastal Adventure Corridor encompasses the largest population concentration of the three corridors with large clusters along East Coast Parkway, Pasir Ris, Punggol and Sengkang. The route will connect and integrate with existing waterside parks, the park connector network, places of interest, and cultural and natural heritage sites.
Round Island Route (RIR) Masterplanning
SCLD previously carried out the masterplanning for the Round Island Routes Eco-Discovery Trail (then called the Eco-Route) in 2010. We were therefore particularly happy to win the consultancy for the first phase of this project of national significance to be designed and taken through to construction.
Our team was selected for our comprehensive design proposals and our environmentally sensitive approach to the project which includes measures to conserve and improve habitats along the route and increase biodiversity.
RIR Phase 1 Consultant Team:
Landscape Architects: Stephen Caffyn Landscape Design (SCLD)
Architects: AWP Architects
Civil & Structural Engineers: Arup Singapore
Mechanical & Electrical Engineers: Arup Singapore
Quantity Surveyors: WTPartnership
Sorry we can't show any of our current proposals for the RIR. However, below are some images from our original masterplanning (now superseded) carried out in 2010 relating to the RIR as a whole and specifically to the Eco-Discovery Corridor - previously known as the Eco Route.
