The a short while ago revamped segment of the Rail Corridor in Bukit Timah has attracted a whole lot of people, including cyclists (Area of Rail Corridor reopens with new capabilities, obtain points, March 23).
On most days, visitors on the path is heavy and on weekends, it can be jam-packed, especially at the Upper Bukit Timah Truss Bridge and Bukit Timah Truss Bridge.
As a person who regularly walks on this path, I have seen that lots of cyclists, particularly those on racing bikes and mountain bikes, take care of the path like a race circuit or mountain bike path.
Regardless of signals inquiring cyclists to dismount and walk throughout the slender bridge, most do not observe this rule.
They race throughout the bridges, in which substantial figures of men and women congregate to acquire pictures, sometimes transferring so silently from at the rear of that anyone could effortlessly be caught unawares.
Lots of of these racing bikes do not have bells to warn people today in entrance of them. The cyclists also disregard the velocity restrict.
I have written to the Nationwide Parks Board by way of the OneService app about this dangerous predicament.
So much, I have not found any improvement in the conduct of the cyclists. Some have challenged me concerning the regulations when I tried to increase the difficulty with them.
With the Governing administration encouraging additional to acquire up cycling, there is a have to have for cyclists to know the procedures.
I recommend that all bicycle retailers highlight the speed restrict on paths shared with pedestrians to prospects acquiring bikes.
The authorities should implement speed restrictions, perhaps by sending officers to the Rail Corridor at random timings to make certain cyclists heed the guidelines, and come across a remedy to this issue.
