A green corridor down memory lane
Letter from Lee Seow Ser, TODAY, 17 May 2011.
On a recent Saturday, a handful of enthusiastic nature and heritage lovers like myself participated in a guided walk along the tracks of the rustic Bukit Timah Railway Station. This was followed by an insightful sharing session – “The Green Corridor” forum – organised by the National Library Board and Nature Society of Singapore (NSS).
In a proposal titled “The Green Corridor – A Proposal to Keep the Railway Lands as a Continuous Green Corridor” submitted by NSS last year to the authorities, representations were made to preserve the railway lands which brim with historical value and biodiversity in flora and fauna, after the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station ceases to operate on July 1.
