Support The Green Corridor

On 1 Jul 2011, the Malayan Railway Land will be returned to Singapore for development. Nature Society (Singapore) (NSS) submitted a proposal, The Green Corridor: A Proposal to Keep the Railway Lands as a Continuous Green Corridor, to the relevant government agencies on 21 Oct 2010. NSS proposes to retain the current KTM Railway Land as a Green Corridor after the train operations cease. The proposal can be viewed at http://www.nss.org.sg/doc/TheGreenCorridor101103.pdf.

At Green Future Solutions, we see the potential of The Green Corridor and support the proposal. We agree with the NSS’s views that:

There are so many compelling reasons to preserve the Railway Land as a Green Corridor. It is readymade Nature Corridor, Recreational Space, Eco-friendly transport route all rolled into one. It is a valuable piece of ecological and historical heritage that should be preserved for future generations of Singaporeans.

To gather support for The Green Corridor, we created the ‘We support The Green Corridor in Singapore’ Facebook page in Nov 2010, which has about 1,460 supporters so far. It’s now 3 months to the closure and return of the railway lands on 1 Jul. Time is running out as we wait for the government’s reply on the proposal. Read more
