The Local Beauty

The authorities will be laying a new major water pipeline from central Singapore to the city area underneath the Rail Corridor from 2016-2019. At first, several segments were up in arms after hearing of this report. Subsequently, they felt that although the water pipeline construction work on the Rail Corridor will cause short-term disruption, it would actually help to ensure the long-term future of the corridor, since no major developments would then be permitted on top of the pipeline. This implies a continuous green corridor maintained well in to the future (well, 50~100 years at least). An Environmental Impact Assessment is on the cards and alternative public access will be provided along the corridor to minimise disruption.

The picture is well executed. I believe this green belt will have many beautiful critters.
Ayush Basu: You are right, just a little patience is needed to not scare them away, Louis.
Wonderfully captured Ayush! I like the 3D feel to it.
Ayush Basu: Thanks a bunch, Richard! I am pleased you like it.
A brilliant yellow butterfly is one we do not have here. Very pretty. There will certainly be disruption during the work phase but the reasoning is sound so good.
Ayush Basu: Exactly. You summed it up neatly. I am pleased I could share a butterfly for your viewing pleasure, Mary
It is a beautiful butterfly, and I suspect that peoples thoughts about the future of the green corridor post the works could be right.
Ayush Basu: I agree. One of the rarer instances of government-public cooperation, Brian.
They are very organised in Singapore aren't they?

Lovely butterfly
Ayush Basu: They do like to think so and perhaps they are on close to 100% of all occasions.
Thank you Bill

Short term pain for long term gain, as they say Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you. Very effective summary, Chad.
Did you see any interesting birds?
Ayush Basu: A few, LC. But they won't be around if there are yelling kids and panting joggers up and down the corridor! grin

Lovely - especially the warm orange among the vivid green.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much. It certainly stands out, doesn't it?
i like your butterfly Ayush... the project sounds like the green space will be saved... for at least another 50 to 100 years....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Yes, that is the hope. One of the rarer instances of government-public cooperation, Brian.

That's good to hear. Sounds like win-win for all.
Ayush Basu: Yes Alan, one of the rarer instances of government-public cooperation, Brian.
