The Green Corridor walk along the old Jurong Line [12 Jun]
Sunday, June 12, 8am – 11am, Teban Gardens to Sunset Way.
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.
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. Mr Tan Teck Chye from the Nature Society (Singapore) will lead this walk. Be prepared to get your shoes wet and muddy. This walk is not suitable for small kids.
Meeting time: 8am
Meeting point: Blk 10 Teban Gardens Road (see map at http://gothere.sg/maps#q:10%20teban%20garden%20road). Take bus 79 or 143 at Jurong East Interchange and alight at Teban Garden Post Office.
