Lornie Nature Corridor is a 1.76 km long park connector which stretches along Lornie Road, by the fringe of the Central Catchment Area. It is part of the Lornie Road park connector which links up MacRitchie Reservoir Park to Adam Road and forms part of the Coast-to-Coast trail.
Walking the Lornie Nature Corridor
Unveiled on 21 November 2020, the Lornie Nature Corridor takes advantage of the fact that the majority of the traffic between Adam Road and Farrar Road now runs along the new Lornie Highway. This has left Lornie Road, once a busy throughway, with relatively less traffic.
The number of lanes along Lornie Road has been reduced, allowing for the Lornie Nature Corridor, a shared path for both cyclists, hikers and joggers, to be constructed.
For those starting from MacRitchie Reservoir Park, the Lornie Road park connector can be found at the top of Reservoir Road, where Lornie Road and the new Lornie Highway intersect.

As part of the One Million Trees movement, NParks has been planting a cluster of new trees, adding to the buffer around the Central Catchment Area.
Trees such as the Singapore Durian have been planted along the Lornie Nature Corridor. These will add to the greenery as they mature over time.
Keep a look out and you may be able to spot reminders of a time when Lornie Road was once a busy thoroughfare for traffic.
