Track 7 Mandai Road

Track 7 Mandai Road is the only named track in Singapore with an expressway flyover - Seletar Expressway’s Upper Seletar Flyover - built over it.


This is at the junction with Mandai Road.

Walking in... the usual single-lane dual carriageway, with no pavements or curbs at the sides, just grass.

A little bridge over a canal that drains into Upper Seletar Reservoir.



Track 7 in 1991, while the Seletar Expressway was still under construction. It is on the left of the map, next to Seletar Reservoir Park.

The map above reveals why a flyover was specially constructed over the track, instead of expunging the track altogether, as was the fate of so many tracks before it.


Track 7 is needed for access to these sites: Upper Seletar Reservoir and the park by its shores, Mandai Executive Golf Course, and the Nee Soon 500m Range.


And that’s why Track 7 has survived to the present.
