The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will build short cycling links to connect 11 MRT stations to nearby park connectors.

It is seeking a contractor to build these off-road paths, which will plug some gaps in the existing cycling network and range from tens to hundreds of metres long.

The links will be built at these MRT stations: Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Woodlands, Marsiling, Promenade, Hougang, Sengkang, Potong Pasir, Dover, Clementi and Yew Tee.

An LTA spokesman said work to build a cycling link in Buangkok has begun, and added: "These links will allow cyclists to travel on dedicated cycling paths to the nearest MRT station without having to go onto the roads."
