It's a busy week for us all at Stephen Caffyn Landscape Design.
Today ( Wednesday 29 March 2017) our Bishan to City Feasibility Study project, to create seamless connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists along the Kallang River, featured prominently in a new exhibition at the URA Centre with the title 'A River Runs Through It'.
The exhibition was launched by Minister for National Development - Mr Lawrence Wong.
SCLD's project 'Bishan to City Feasibility Study' for our client, the URA, proposes and investigates the feasibility of different solutions to overcome the major obstacles currently blocking the route alongside the Kallang river. Our proposals to improve connectivity for the pedestrian and cycling route running alongside the river, navigating obstacles such as the PIE, have assessed the viability of overhead bridges and underpasses, as well as ongrade crossings, along with recommendations for improvements to existing routes and crossings, to enable them to set new standards for cycling and general accessibility.
The URA is inviting public feedback for the ideas on display at the exhibition. More information and feedback forms are available at www.ura.gov.sg/uol/kallangriver
As the Landscape Architects and Cycling Consultants on this project, we used our expertise in cycling infrastructure work, developed from our research for this and our other projects, the Round Island Route (NParks) and the Cycling Network (LTA), to propose options for the crossings and conduct a cycling route audit of each method in order to assess viability and ease of use.
The Exhibition 'A River Runs Through It' is open from 29th March until 2nd May, at the URA Centre from 9am to 6pm on weekdays.
