Assessments will be made on drainage impact of Bukit Brown

We thank Mr Chong Ja Ian for his letter "What effect will the development of Bukit Brown have on flooding" (Feb 11).

Public agencies work closely to assess how new developments, such as infrastructure and housing, could affect surrounding areas.

In doing so, we are able to introduce mitigating measures where needed.

For the new road through Bukit Brown, relevant agencies such as the PUB and National Parks Board were consulted on the drainage requirements and its impact to the environment before the plan was approved.

The larger part of Bukit Brown will not be developed for some time yet. When the area is eventually needed for development, relevant agencies will similarly be consulted for their assessment and recommendation of measures needed to address any drainage issue. Letter from Helen Lim, Director, Media Relations and Public Education, Land Transport Authority; and Hwang Yu-Ning, Group Director (Physical Planning), Urban Redevelopment Authority
