Green corridor master plan sought

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said a competition will be organised for architects and design planners to come up with a master plan for the green corridor.

The corridor refers to the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) railway land.

URA said more details on the competition will be announced at a later date.

Also commenting on the corridor, the Minister of State for National Development, Tan Chuan-Jin, said the green corridor consultation group is still in the process of receiving feedback from members of the public.

He said that over the next two years, the group hopes to engage a wide section of society on plans for the 26-kilometre track which stretches from Tanjong Pagar to Woodlands.

The group comprises the URA, National Parks Board, green groups like the Nature Society (Singapore), the Singapore Heritage Society as well as academics.

The group will meet once every two months.
