Walk around Singapore: Toa Payoh (July 2017) - updated

Went for my usual morning walk and detoured to Toa Payoh to take some pictures of the 'new' look.

This is the overhead bridge that connects Potong Pasir to Toa Payoh
Using the overhead bridge across Central Express @ Kallang park connector, linking Potong Pasir to Toa Payoh, I reached Kim Keat Ave and started my walk from Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery Temple.
