New Changi Airport Connector features life-sized dinosaur exhibits

For the first time, visitors and travellers can cycle or jog to Changi Airport, with convenient access onwards to Jewel Changi Airport and the terminals. 

Changi Airport Group has unveiled the new Changi Airport Connector, a 3.5km cycling and jogging path that links Changi Airport to East Coast Park and the Park Connector Network (PCN).

The opening of the new park connecter was officiated by Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Transport, on Sunday, October 12.

The Changi Airport Connector is home to the Changi Jurassic Mile – a permanent outdoor display of life-sized dinosaurs. More than 20 different pre-historic creatures from nine species are displayed along the 1km cycling and jogging path.

From a towering Tyrannosaurus Rex to gigantic dinosaur eggs, visitors will be wowed by the lifelike dinosaur exhibits at the Changi Jurassic Mile.

The connector begins and ends at HUB & SPOKE Changi Airport (HUB & SPOKE), near Terminal 2. This is a new pit stop facility where visitors can rent bicycles, cool off with a shower after exercise, or have a meal with family and friends. 

Besides complimentary bicycle parking, HUB & SPOKE also offers bicycle lockers for rental. Ideal for backpacker travellers who wish to “bike and fly” when travel resumes, users will be able to securely store their bicycles for up to 10 days each time. Those looking to freshen up after their exercise can do so at the pay-per-use showers that come fully equipped with bath amenities and lockers for safekeeping of personal belongings.

"With the support of NParks and the Singapore Tourism Board, we are now able to offer airport staff an alternative route to get to and from the airport, and a new recreational option for local residents," said Jayson Goh, CAG’s Managing Director for Airport Operations Management.

"The new experiential elements injected along the Changi Jurassic Mile will offer all who visit a sense of adventure and surprise. With the Changi Airport Connector, we hope to give visitors a different experience of the airport."
