I started my walk at the Bouna Vista MRT station as there is now a continuous trail from Cold Storage Jelita to Tanjong Pagar. At the station, this trail towards Tanjong Pagar can be accessed just slightly after the tunnel towards Ghim Moh HDB Estate. it runs under North Buona Vista Road and Commonwealth West Ave. From this corridor, there are many paths leading to Wessex Estate. Another detour is near to the Masjid Hang Jebat. Taking the canal path, there is a man-make trail into the forest which leads to a large fallen tree with seats created there (the Ark) in the middle of the forest. It is a popular place with the bird watchers. Fortunately, from the Ark, there is an easy and short path which leads to the field at Warwick Road with some black and white houses. Throughout the walk, I spotted many yellow Vigna Reflexopilosa flowers, morning glory and pink butterfly pea flowers. There is an exit at Bukit Merah Lane 3 and Alexandra Food Village is nearby.

The Green Corridor is now extended to the Tanjong Pagar End. The easiest way to access it by public transport is to start from kampong Bahru Bus Terminal. The buses going to this terminal are 190, 120, 121, 122, 2, 12, 54, 174. From the terminal, across the road is the start of the Green Corridor. There are numerous Litttlebell flowers creeping on the ground and soft butterfly pea flowers twining on the fence near the start of the trail. Along the way, there are lots of pink mimosa flowers and purple morning glory flowers adding some colours to the green trail. Soon after there is a small path to Blk 2 at Spooner Road and the bus stop for buses 61, 124, 143 and 166. One can take a rest by sitting on the stone pavement beneath the Radin Mas Flyover. Another exit point would be Blk 138 Bukit Merah. There are some Marigold flowers and other plants grown here. Growing wild here are the Sweet Earweed and the Purple-leaved Buttonweed. Another possible rest stop is beneath the Lower Delta Flyover. I saw another path to exit the Green Corridor near to the Henderson Flyover. This exit would be close to the Bukit Merah Interchange. Another good exit is at Jln Kilang Barat. On the whole, this stretch of the Green Corridor is interesting as the vegetations offer lots of varieties and appears quite rustic despite the fact that it is in the heart of town.

Another section of the Green Corridor is opened. This section includes the truss bridge near King Albert MRT station. Starting from the bus stop opposite Bukit Timah Plaza, the Green Corridor has been beautified with many flowering plants such as Lantana, Hibiscus, Crepe Ginger etc . The truss bridge is also newly painted and the granite pieces along the rail track have been flattened so that it is easier to walk. So a smooth walk from this newly opened section to Bouna Vista ( need to cross a road near Cold Storage Jelita ) MRT station can be enjoyed.

The Green Corridor is renamed the Greenway. This review is about the Eastern stretch of the Greenway from Commonwealth Ave to Bukit Merah area. Here, there are many entrances to the Greenway along the way such as Commonwealth Drive near to to the Biopolis Synapse, Commonwealth Dr Blk 67, Blk 55, Sri Muneeswaran Temple, Jalan Hang Jebat, near to Alexandra Hospital and Jln Kilang Barat. Near to Jln kilang Barat, there is a construction Site but it is not the end of the trail. One can go around the side of it and continue on to a more shaded stretch but the exit is still at Jln Kilang Barat. It is a lovely walk especially when the weather is cool as there are not many tall trees along this stretch. However there are lots of shrubs and low-lying plants such as the Morning Glory plants with its purple flowers and pink touch-me-not flowering plants. Simpoh Air plants with its yellow flowers and red fruits are found abundantly along the Greenway. Three detours enhance the walk here. One of them is the Wessex Estate and there are a few paths along the Greenway near to Tanglin Halt where one access this estate. Wessex Estate’s clusters of colonial-style black and white houses were mostly built in the 1930s and 1940s. it is made up of 26 blocks of walk-up apartments and 58 semi-detached houses, they are concentrated around Woking Road, Westbourne Road, Whitchurch Road, Weyhill Close and Wilton Close, all of which were named after towns and villages in England. Bus 191 circles around this estate. There is the famous restaurant-Colbar at Whitchurch Road serving traditional Hainanese Pork Chop besides the local fares. The restaurant provides dining experience with a taste of the old colonial times. Within the laid-back neighbourhood of Wessex Estate, one can find an abandoned water tank standing on a small hilltop near Westbourne Road. The second detour is at the Mosque Hang Jebat to explore Jalan Hang Jebat’s colonial terraces built by the British in the 1930s. They were used as the accommodation for the British junior ranking officers, whereas the senior officers stayed at Wessex Estate’s semi-detached houses. There is a very majestic heritage Rain tree along Jln Hang Jebat opposite to the row of terraces. The third detour involves walking next to the drain just after the mosque. It leads to some black and white double storey houses at Warwick Road.

The lockdown provided a good opportunity to get out and about and experience the nature that Singapore has to offer. The walk from Marsiling down to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is about 12km, but it has the advantage that you're in amongst nature for most of the way. Just be sure to bring plenty of water as there's none along the way.
