Hang Chong from the Nature Society (Singapore) is conducting a special familiarisation trip along the old Jurong Line to train volunteers who are willing to help us lead future walks at the Jurong Line.

Date and Time: Friday, April 22, 3-6pm (Good Friday and Earth Day)

Meeting time: 3pm

Meeting point: Blk 39A Food Centre, Teban Gardens Road (you can take bus 79 or 143 at Jurong East Interchange)

The Jurong Line, completed in 1965, served as an extension into the then newly constructed Jurong Industrial Estate. It failed to generate adequate traffic and was closed in the early 1990s. It has since been partially dismantled.

Be a volunteer and join us for this walk and explore natural reforestation, spontaneous gardens and small scale farming, walk in a dark underpass, and cross the Ulu Pandan Canal via a majestic cast iron bridge. Be prepared to get your shoes wet and muddy.
