Three new roads in Bidadari estate – Bidadari Park Drive, Alkaff Crescent and Woodleigh Link – will be partially opened on 14 January (Sunday) to serve the upcoming developments within the estate, revealed the Housing and Development Board (HDB).
Bidadari Park Drive road will serve as Bidadari’s main transportation spine as it will traverse the full length of the new estate, from Bartley Road to Upper Serangoon Road.
Bidadari Greenway, a 1.6km stretch for community interaction, will run alongside Bidadari Park Drive, said HDB. Featuring rest spots, commercial as well as social communal facilities, it will form a “green spine” that connects the housing developments to the Bidadari Park. It will also come with pedestrian and cycling paths.
With the opening of the new roads, three signalised junctions will also be commissioned to regulate pedestrian and vehicular movement. Located along Bidadari Park Drive, the junctions will connect to Alkaff Crescent, Upper Aljunied Road and Upper Serangoon Road.
HDB noted that auxiliary police officers will be deployed during the commissioning of the new signalised junctions to guide motorist.
“Motorists are advised to drive carefully when approaching the traffic signals and to observe the traffic signal indications.”
