Sunday, 31 July, 9am – 11am;

Location: Bukit Timah Train Station to Rail Mall (meet at platform opposite station);

We started this Facebook page in Nov last year to gather support for Nature Society’s proposal on The Green Corridor. Since then, we have 7,700+ people and 37 businesses and organisations supporting The Green Corridor. Thank you for all your support!

Earlier this month, the government agreed to “plan our urban development along the railway track to keep a green spine for nature and leisure, without compromising the developmental potential of the railway lands”. The government is also in the process of engaging interest groups in this planning stage, including consultations with Nature Society and us. We will continue to work with the authorities to realise The Green Corridor and reflect your views. Big thanks to Minister Khaw, BG Tan, MND, URA and NParks!

We would like to thank all of you for helping to spread the word and documenting our shared memories through your photos, videos, letters, blogs and comments! We believe everyone’s efforts helped to nudge the government in doing the right thing. Read more
