    It's overly cluttered and the hdb at the back spoils it all!

    If you go during the evening, you will see some old folks walking on the path as if walking on flat land.

    No no for me as I got height phobia...

    Actually the side towards Sunset avenue can talk a lot of nice pictures from 6pm onwards.

    Long ago no more Trans Island, now is known as SMRT. Sunset Way there have to walk in and pass a basketball court then continue to walk downwards then turn right and go up the slope as shown in my first pic. Then have to climb up a large concrete block to get up the tracks.

    The height is more than 10 metres. Estimated should be close to 20 metres from the bridge to the waters below.

    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.

    walking distance from clementi station. ask your friend who stays there.
    you would have covered the same distance in walking by walking to the bus station and walking to the rail after alighting the bus.

    haha, i just went there today, not bad , the structure is still good actually there is a staircase in between block 301 and 305 to lead down to the old railway and walking right will for some 50 metres will reach the old rail bridge liao

    the bridge is stil stable and it is my 2nd time walking on it.


    for those who dun like to walk , can take 284 from clementi bus interchange

    In fact the bridge is very well-built and robust due to older materials of high durability used for railway bridge construction. I hope this structure will always remain and won't be gazetted or torn down.
