    yes there is, right from the beginning of the track near Pandan road, follow to track and there it is the black railway bridge, 800metres from the start.

    Go there to take nice birds or wedding photos, or dogs.

    If u drive, turn into Sunset Way. Drive for about 150 meters along Sunset Way. You want to look for the entrance to the 3rd HDB carpark on your LEFT. You cant miss it as it will be on a downslope and you will see part of the abandoned overhead railway crossing - Sunset Way continues to run below this elevated crossing. This carpark is next to the big railway bridge as seen in so many CS pictures. If you look around, you will see the trampled path that most visitors will use to go up unto the railway tracks. Hope this helps

    One of my close friend who stays around there told me now cannot enter cos if caught, will be suspected of stealing metal.

    Initially was ok but when i reached the part where below is the canal, feet starts to become a little bit 'soft' as u can see there're no pillars to hold on and only walking on those 5 rusty metal bars. In addition, some of the rivets also become loose so at some areas, they move a bit when treaded on.

    I always get nervous every time I attempt to cross the old railway track. For those thinking of venturing there, please don't go alone and be extra careful.

    Jogging at the track is different from crossing the railway bridge and the jogging track is lighted but not the railway bridge.

    I was referring to the old railway track bridge. The bridge is old and the structure has not been maintained for a long time. Some parts of the bridge are loose and frail. If anything were to happen to you and you are alone, you do the math. Hope that helps.

    The more large groups that go there, the more stress there will be on the structure.

    Spare a thought for the rest.

    The bridge is extremely durable, only thing is the metal planks that we walk on that must be taken into consideration.

    That's why lah... look at the 2nd & 3rd pic (from top)... must be careful if you really want to walk across. No joke.

    Though it's precarious, it's quite an experience to walk across this abandoned railway bridge but honestly not for those who're afraid of heights.
