Walking the last 3km of the railway tracks

After bidding farewell to the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, we walked the last 3 kilometres of the railway tracks before all the tracks were closed to the public on 1 August 2011. The last section of the tracks started from the Bukit Timah railway station to the Rail Mall.

The section just before the Bukit Timah Railway Station was already being dismantled! Talk about efficiency. I'm sure that before long, the whole railway tracks will be gone. However, there is an effort going on by The Green Corridor to keep the railway tracks as green spaces. It is an effort that I fully support. In a country where development and urbanisation are turning jungles into concrete jungles, we should preserve as many green spaces as we can.

The walk took is more than three hours as we slowly walked and took many photographs of the bridge, the tracks, and even some monkeys! By the time we reached Rail Mall, it was already dark.

All in all, it was a nostalgic walk along what would soon become a nostalgia.
