National goals must take priority

I WAS disappointed to read that, after a meeting lasting more than two hours, representatives of the interest groups lobbying against the Bukit Brown road project issued a statement criticising the way the session was handled ('Naysayers want all works halted'; Tuesday).

The fact that there are now fewer graves affected, with a section of the proposed road being elevated over Bukit Brown Cemetery, shows that the Government has taken the concerns of these groups seriously.

While these groups play a useful role in our society, the bottom line is that national goals take precedence over special interests of such lobby groups.
