Love our MacRitchie Forest is a campaign launched in response to the new MRT Cross Island Line (CRL) that is proposed to pass through the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR) near the MacRitchie Reservoir. The plan was unveiled in the Land Transport Master Plan 2013 with the release of the Population White Paper by the Singapore Government in February 2013. The MacRitchie Forest is beautiful and diverse. Its ecosystem is also fragile, and might not withstand works associated with the CRL.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will make its decision after the completion of the environmental impact assessment in December 2013. In the meantime, we hope that by sharing how special MacRitchie Forest is to Singapore, you will find reasons to love it, and lend your voice to save it.
