WALK to Sentosa in just 15 minutes, under a canopy cover of lush foliage and with a picturesque view of the sea.
Come November next year, a $70 million Sentosa Boardwalk will offer island visitors a seamless, all-weather connectivity from the waterfront promenade along Vivocity to Sentosa.
Visitors will have the option of either strolling along a timber walkway, or using one of the dual-directional canopy-covered travellators.
The travellators ascend gently towards the centre of the boardwalk, taking guests to a vantage lookout point overlooking the bay and the sea.
The 620-metre long gateway also features five garden themes, showcasing the tropical landscapes indigenous to Singapore.
Designed to handle the greater influx of visitors expected from the opening of Resorts World at Sentosa, the boardwalk was unveiled at a ground breaking ceremony by Mr S Iswaran, Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Education, on Tuesday.
It is able to carry a throughput of 8,000 guests per hour per direction, the Sentosa Leisure Group said in a news release, which will complement the travel options of trains, buses, and cable cars.
Construction has commenced and is targeted for completion before the end of 2010.
