President Tony Tan Keng Yam has urged the government to not rush into coming up with a plan for the Rail Corridor.

He said it is more important to take time to wait for good ideas to come forth.

“Don’t rush into doing things (and) say ‘We must have a plan and we must finish it by 2-3 years’ time’… (Let’s) take our time to study the possibilities,” said Dr Tan.

He was speaking after visiting the “Journey of Possibilities” exhibition at the URA Centre on Wednesday.

The exhibition features about 80 entries comprising 18 winning ideas, 19 honourable mentions, as well as other innovative entries received for Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Ideas Competition. The exhibition also showcases some of the interesting feedback and suggestions received on URA’s Rail Corridor website since its launch in July last year.

    Yes. Rushing won’t bring result. Especially the KTM tracks been in its natural state for a very long time. How to introduce additional facilities and not destroying the surrounding habitat is not an easy task. At the same time it also have to watch out the current vegetation does not overgrown as well.

    I wish to see the Green Corridor will looks like something like Wetlands, and not like our gardens which feels too man made.
