The government will add more than 200 km of new sheltered walkways, which are expected to be ready by 2018.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded two contracts worth $143.8 million to Or Kim Peow Contractors, under the Walk2Ride programme.
The first contract covers 38 LRT stations in Bukit Panjang, Sengkang and Punggol, while the second contract covers 29 MRT stations in the central and southern area of Singapore as well as Bukit Merah bus interchange.
Works for these two contracts are expected to start in Q4 2015 and will complete progressively by 2018.
Announced in January 2013, the Walk2Ride programme provides sheltered connectivity between transport nodes and residential developments, public amenities schools, and health care facilities within a 400m radius of all MRT stations and within a 200m radius of all LRT stations and bus interchanges.
