Danger: Growing tree roots can crack wall of river bank

Danger: Growing tree roots can crack wall of river bank
A big tree at Sungei Pandan near the AYE has been growing on the retaining wall of the river bank, causing cracks on the cemented wall.

A STOMPer feels this is dangerous as the powerful roots may cause the wall to collapse.

He tells STOMP:

"These two pictures were taken at the Sungei Pandan near the AYE.

"There is a big tree growing on the retaining wall of the river bank and cracks have appeared on the cemented wall.

"In time to come the tree will grow bigger and its powerful roots will cause the retaining wall to collapse.

"Since NParks owns the Ulu Pandan Park Connector it could perhaps send its workers to chop down this dangerous tree."

That is good, wildlife can live in the crack and the leaves will also feed wildlife.
