Book Synopsis

The Green Rail Corridor
Authors: Ho Hua Chew, Anuj Jain, Alan OwYong

The book presents an overview of the ecological and biodiversity importance of the Rail Corridor along its main and branch line.

Going beyond the benefits of the Corridor as a recreational and cultural-historic asset, this book presents a robust plan that maintains (and possibly enhances) the ecological connectivity of what is so far the longest green corridor in Singapore. The book identifies and highlights those existing natural habitats that are close to or contiguous to the Corridor to be given conservation attention as "safe havens" for the long term survival of their wildlife and as stepping stones for their dispersal and movement as well as the strengthening of Singapore's existing nature reserves and parks.

The book also serves to promote a green appreciation of the Rail Corridor and is aimed at all Singaporeans to enjoy and care for the future well-being of this priceless natural and historical-cultural heritage.

Newly launched in March, this book unveils a sanctuary hidden in plain sight along the northern stretch of the Rail Corridor, documented in beautiful prose and vibrant photography by volunteers - a labour of love by volunteers of Cicada Tree Eco-Place and Nature Society (Singapore).

This 232 pages book was inspired by NSS’ publication “The Green Rail Corridor” (2019).


Pang Sua Woodland
Authors: Teresa Guttensohn, Leong Kwok Peng

The book proposes for the conservation of the woodland from urban development. By rewilding the woodland and naturalising Sungei Pang Sua, the forest would be reimagined as a permanent public park with a natural winding stream, marshy ponds and community orchards.

An important conduit for wildlife dispersal, the park would form an eco-link between Kranji Woodland and Bukit Mandai Forest in the north, Pang Sua Pond wetland in the east, as well as Bukit Gombak Forest and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

This park would also preserve the rural heritage of Bukit Panjang.
