With Singapore’s rail network in the central area becoming more dense, some stations on different lines are now faster to reach on foot than by train.

According to The Straits Times, the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) has rolled out a new Walking Train Map (WTM) which shows the walking time between stations on different lines.

The new map will be progressively put up at 19 MRT stations, including Bugis, City Hall, Chinatown, Dhoby Ghaut, Esplanade, Little India and Raffles Place.

The LTA has said that the new WTM, consisting of 18 travel hacks, will help commuters “decide if they prefer to walk and save time on their commute”.

Ranging from two to 11 minutes, the timings shown on the map were derived by conducting walking trials based on Singaporeans’ average walking speeds.

The WTM will also come in pretty handy for Singaporeans when there are train delays and breakdowns on the North-South Line (NSL)East-West Line (EWL), and Circle Line.
