Turn historic gem into green haven for all
Letter by Patrick Low, The Straits Times, 11 Jul 2011.
I am the semi-clad cyclist who appeared on the front page of The Straits Times last Thursday (‘Removal work right on track’).
I had gone to that section of the railway to examine the feasibility of creating a dedicated cycling track from Woodlands to Tanjong Pagar. But as I walked along the track, I was filled with other ideas.
Before the bulldozers and excavators remove everything, let us think about the possibility of preserving sections of the railway. Our younger generations can then walk the track as part of their education in understanding the historical linkage between Malaysia and Singapore.
