A "Grand Spine for the Park Connector System" - NSS' proposal for KTM Railway land
Category : news
Nature Society (Singapore) submitted a proposal to retain the current KTM Railway as a green corridor to several government agencies on 21 Oct 2010. From the foreword by Geh Min,
"This proposal for the KTM Railway should not be viewed as a barrier to development. After all, the railway has been a symbol of progress in the past and should continue to be so. Rather, we feel that by exploring more creative, sensitive and inclusive ways to utilize the railway and its land we would be enhancing rather than reducing its value."
"... the estimated length of the Railway Land is 40 kilometres... If the Railway Land were converted into a Green Corridor, it could lend the now dispersed and disconnected Park Connector System a Grand Spine."
