Some of you may have heard of or seen pictures of luminous pathways.

Like the dreamy night sky on the ground, similar glow in the dark paths can be found in countries such as Netherlands and Poland.

Now, we won’t have to travel abroad to tread on these pretty paths – we have our own 100-meter luminescent path right here in Singapore at the Rail Corridor located between Choa Chu Kang Road and Upper Bukit Timah Road.

The glow-in-the-dark effect is created by natural, non-toxic light green strontium aluminate minerals that have been mixed into the pavement. Like the glow in the dark stickers we used to stick around our bedrooms as children, these minerals absorb ultra-violet light from the sun during the day, allowing it to glow for a solid 8 hours through the night.

Imagine the romantic nighttime strolls you can take on this path!

This is all part of a two-year trial by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). While pretty to look at, these luminescent paths are functional as well – they’re intended to make the paths safer and more accessible, without being disruptive to the natural, rustic atmosphere of the track.

The next time you’re in the area at night, make sure to check out the path in the flesh!
