My railway track walking adventures part V

Hi Readers, welcome back to my KTM railway track walking adventures in Singapore part V. This part of the blog will be between the 2 truss bridges (from Bukit Timah Road  till Upper Bukit Timah road near The Rail Mall). Only left with Last few days for the public to visit this 3km long track till end of July 2011.

The Truss bridge located at Bukit Timah area is located near King Albert Park and the old Yeo Hiap Seng Factory site (located near Rifle Range Road but the developer will be building condo at the old Yeo Hiap Seng Factory site).

Please do not vandalise the bridges when you walk past it.

Why 1871? Can anyone tell me more about it? Was the bridge built in the year 1871?

toilets!

Can visit the portable toilets along the way at Rifle Range Road Area.

Why 75km/J? Does it got to do with the train speed as the truss bridge and Bukit Timah train station is nearby?

Now under the flyovers near Jalan Anak Bukit area and PIE and heading towards Upper Bukit Timah Road area.

Tracks along Upper Bukit Timah Area… Heading to Hindhede road soon.

Approaching on the top of the Hindhede Road. It is quite near Bukit Timah Nature Reserve Visitor Center.

1868. This may be built earlier than the truss bridge at Bukit Timah Road. Hindhede Road is seen below.

That is the road that is leading towards Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Look out for special guests along the way when you reach Hindhede area.

Now near the Hindhede Walk area and the nature reserve. Special guests approaching. Please do not feed them at all.

Beautiful Scenery of Upper Bukit Timah Area (Looks like oil painting right? as I used gif to save this picture)

Hello traffic light! Good to see you after a long distance of walking

Yes, they were the special guests that I was telling you all about. Cute right?

So sweet of them. One was helping to scratch salt from another monkey’s  body.

Still not reaching the other truss bridge at the Rail Mall area yet. About 2 more KM to go… (there’s still a long long way to go – felt like singing We will get there by Stefanie Sun)

Still not there yet but there was a bridge while walking towards the Rail Mall.

Still not yet reaching the Rail Mall area.

Approaching the Rail Mall and the next Truss Bridge along the Rail Mall.

They just built those steps in early July for people to enter/exit the train tracks

1861 on the structure of this truss bridge along the Rail Mall. Please do not vandalise the beauty of the bridge.

So do exercise with caution while walking on the truss bridge.

It was getting late as it was 6.30pm so I ended my Jul 9  journey on the track at the Rail mall. My next part of the journey started from the Rail Mall till Kranji Road but I did not have the time to go further off to the mangrove regions of the railway tracks from Kranji Road till the cut off point before approaching the Woodlands Train Checkpoint.

  4. Hi,

    Just to enlighten you abit. The numbers on the bridge are not the year that it was built. It is the bridge number along the whole KTM network. Hope it clarifies your doubt as many people have been assuming its the year.

    • Thank you for reading my blog. That’s an interesting fact.

      No wonder there are numbers on the structure. But I was wondering why there are some numbers apart such as 1871, 1868 and 1861.
