President Tan urges govt not to rush plans for Rail Corridor
By Sharon See, Channel NewsAsia, 2 May 2012.
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.
