Look at this filthy Admiralty Road beach!

Look at this filthy Admiralty Road beach!
A STOMPer sent in these photos of rubbish strewn along the beach at Admiralty Road West.

He says:

"These pictures were taken at the beach near the Woodlands Checkpoint at Admiralty Road West.

"The place looked filthy as you can see the flotsam and jetsam washed ashore by the waves.

"There were lots of garbage, dead palm leaves, coconuts, plastic bottles and styrofoam boxes.

"Perhaps schools in the Woodlands area can send their pupils to clean up the beach on a Saturday as part of the community involvement programme (CIP).

"This will instil in our pupils a sense of urgency to protect the environment and keep our beaches spick and span.

"Part of the seawall that was broken and along this stretch several parts of the seawall were damaged by the pounding of the waves. If NEA does not take prompt action soon the whole seawall will collapse.

"A fig tree has sunk its roots into the seawall and cracked the wall. With the pounding of the waves day in and day out the collapse of the seawall is imminent.

"You can see the beautiful Johor coast near the causeway.

"An elderly man went around the coast to pick up cockles, clams and mussels.

"He had a good catch as the tide had just retreated a short while earlier."
