The Cross Island Line: Limiting Impacts to MacRitchie Forest

Description
On 4 December, the Ministry of Transport announced the decision to run the Cross Island Line under the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR). This was met with concerns about the impact to the habitats and species within the CCNR. The engagement between LTA and green groups continues, in a process that has spanned 6 years to date. What's next, and how can we reduce ecological impacts to MacRitchie Forest?

Join us at Singapore Sustainability Academy to hear directly from green groups. The CRL response team will be there to share its next steps, and primatologist Andie Ang and Nature Society (Singapore) President, Shawn Lum, will also be around to take any questions.

Admission is free, please share this event with your friends and family.

Please BYO meals and drinks, there will be fruits available that evening, courtesy of TreeDots.

This session is organised by Green Drinks (Singapore), we would like to give a big thank you to Singapore Sustainability Academy for providing the venue for this event, and TreeDots for sponsoring fruit.
