The Green Corridor

The Green Corridor is the nickname given to the disused railway line in Singapore when the Malaysia-Singapore KTM trains ceased operations on July 1 2011.  In Singapore, there's great potential for this corridor of land which runs from the North of Singapore (Woodlands) to the South (Tanjong Pagar).  

Here's a quick look at The Green Corridor from Holland Road to Bukit Timah Road

In the South of Singapore, this corridor runs through a highly urbanized area. Like other 'Rails to Trails' efforts, I'm hoping that Singapore will retain this corridor of land for 'active transportation' use - an alternative means of transport for commuters to walk or bike.  Ideally (for me anyway), this green corridor would extend from the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve all the way to Tanjong Pagar.  This would give opportunity for people to bike to work downtown, or to the Nature Reserve in Bukit Timah.

The government of Singapore is looking for ideas with what to do with this land.  Support The Nature Society of Singapore's effort to keep The Green Corridor.
