As a Malaysia-bound train cruises past Portsdown Road area on its left-hand-side, it gets as close as about 20 to 25 metres from some of the HDB blocks near Commonwealth Park on its right-hand-side. The trains normally slow down when they reach this area.
Along this stretch of the railway track, there are several shortcuts that have been artificially made to allow people to cross the railway track to get from Commonwealth area to Biopolis and Buona Vista area, and vice versa.
One such shortcut is shown here with the futuristic building Immunos in Biopolis in the background.
