Siglap Park Connector’s PIE Bridge

Siglap Park Connector’s PIE Bridge

Cyclists who make their way across the PIE via the Siglap Park Connector Bridge have to cross a bridge that has ramps on both ends. You take off along a zig-zag slope to the top of the bridge, cross the PIE and then make headway down another zig-zag slope to continue the journey along the park connector.

Thoughtful touches have been added to the PIE bridge to reduce hazardous occurrence along the bridge. For instance, there is a large mirror to warn cyclists of approaching traffic coming from the opposite direction around a blind corner at the Lengkok Tiga end.

Another measure taken to prevent accidents is the do-not-cycle-on-bridge rule. There are many prominent signs on this PIE bridge of the Siglap Park Connector to warn cyclists not to cycle across the bridge for their own safety as well as the safety of others.

Not all individuals heed the no-cycling warnings. I was the witness of several individuals cycling across the PIE bridge. They struggled up one end and flew off the bridge on the other end of the Siglap Park Connector.

Here’s one of the photographic evidence of a cyclist flouting the do-not-cycle-on-PIE-bridge rule.

For your own safety, look out for possible speeding cyclists (like those on a Tour de France race) when you use this bridge across the PIE along the Siglap Park Connector, on foot.

Thanks for sharing.

Yep. Too many times I see cyclist flouting this rule. Wonder what will the impact be if the authorities installed regulating strips... most probably be more fun for the youngsters. Hmmm.

Have a good weekend.

Hi, it's me again.

Yep, the dismount from bike rule is useless to implement as no one really bothers to follow.

I say this because I just cycled to Pasir Ris Beach Park using the park connectors from Tampines.

Too many cyclists young and very old didn't bother to follow the rule despite the many signs put up.

I guess no one really knows why the need to have this rule, until a person accidentally flips off the railing and onto the expressway or fall down from a great height... by that time, it will a bit too late to learn the lesson on why.

Nonetheless, the cycling was always nice and refreshing to the body, mind and soul.

Have a good week ahead. Thank you for tirelessly sharing the wonderful places we have pocketed here and there around our island.
