The trails at the newly reopened Bukit Timah Nature Reserve are now safer for users, thanks to the non-slip trail surfaces and boardwalks that have been added.
When The New Paper visited the reserve on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, many middle-aged joggers – some part of walking groups – were seen exploring the reopened reserve.
Mr Tan Wee Yeow, 57, the founder of walking group W4F (Walking For Fun, Fitness, Food with Friends) who organises weekly walks every Friday, told TNP that he appreciated the changes made to the reserve.
The retiree said: “It’s much safer now. There used to be some muddy stretches, big roots of trees and we would have to navigate around them, and it would be slippery.
“Some parts were also not protected by the rope and railings we see now. The pavement was quite worn down with soil erosion, but now, there are the reinforcements of steps, which makes it easier to walk on.”
