    My family were there last Sunday. We came all the way from Kuala Lumpur for that purpose. My daughter was able to do her school heritage project at the station. Look like many of the visitors like to explore the wild setting. Like little children, searching what is behind the bushes. There aren’t many places of this setting in Singapore this accessible to the public. It is like having a wild vegetation at our backyard! I believe the 26km length is adequate to meet each and every need.
    While we are waiting for a blue print, it would be good to keep it open as long as it can be allowed by SLA not to hinder it work progress.
