CNA news report: Decision to construct road at Bukit Brown wasn't easy: Tan Chuan-Jin
By Hetty Musfirah | Posted: 19 March 2012 2223 hrs


SINGAPORE: Minister of State for National Development Tan Chuan-Jin said the decision to construct the road at Bukit Brown cemetery has not been an easy one.

Writing in his Facebook page after a discussion with stakeholders on Monday evening, Mr Tan said it is understandable that the decision to proceed with the construction has caused disappointment to those who want to conserve Bukit Brown.

While authorities have not been able to fully accommodate all wishes, many of the views have been taken into consideration.

For instance, the decision to embark on a serious documentation of the affected graves was a result of advice received from the Heritage Society.

He said the Land Transport Authority had also factored in feedback in its design of the road to minimise impact to the cemetery.

Mr Tan said as documentation work on the cemetery continues, authorities are also working with interested stakeholders on public outreach to commemorate the history and heritage of Bukit Brown.

Why can't they just build a 'suspension bridge' accross..... sly.gif

San Francisco got their suspension bridge, Japan have one, China has the longest suspension bridge in the world and many countries does have their very own suspension bridges.

Singapore should have one too .... bounce2.gif

The only one I remember are short one accross Kallang River from Oasis to Tanjong Rhu and the SAFTI.

I believe value-for-money to build overhead bridge from East to West, and another from North to South. These ad hoc zig-saw puzzles are meaningless and un-productive.
