    There is s small natural shallow stream just outside the main gate outside Springdale Condo along Hindhede Walk.
    It wld be nice to clear the vegetaion and make an easy access down to this stream for children to play in.

      @pang SW: The little stream has a very small and delicate ecosystem of a few fishes and even the occasional kingfisher. It also has the occasional litterer who throws rubbish into it. It may be a good idea to build a small platform to overlook it as a photo-opportunity. I would not recommend a place for children to play as it is steep and dangerous, and being small, is easily polluted. Hope you understand.

    Install overhead travelator along the centre of the Corridor from Tg Pagar to the outskirt of the city area and provide links to major buildings and bus stops along the way. In this way people can go to the Corridor for exercise , sight-seeing or other activities, rain or sunshine. The travelator can also be a means of transport to and from the congested city area.
