More devts planned to beautify Singapore

06 February 2007 (CNA)

SINGAPORE: More developments are in the pipeline to beautify Singapore's environment and landscape.

The PUB has identified 150 locations where projects can be implemented in phases over the next 10-15 years.

The projects include those under the PUB's Active, Beautiful and Clean (ABC) Waters programme where more than 20 projects to beautify Singapore's waterways will be implemented.

These include upcoming projects at Pandan Reservoir where two floating islands will be built, and another that will see the lower Seletar Reservoir being transformed into a family destination.

A water stage for outdoor performances will be built there as well as a new viewing gallery.

A six-day exhibition to inform the public of Singapore's waterways is being held at the Asian Civilisations Museum..

The public can view PUB's ABC's water plan and find out about the projects near their homes.

They can also give feedback to the PUB.

Launching the exhibition on Tuesday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong called on the public to play their part to keep the waterways clean.

He said that while the government will lead the way, the success of the PUB's ABC's water programme will depend very much on Singaporeans' active participation. - CNA/ir
