Waves seriously eroding our northern shoreline at Kranji Reservoir

Waves seriously eroding our northern shoreline at Kranji Reservoir
If nothing is done to break the waves hitting the beach at Kranji Reservoir, Singapore's northern coastline will recede even further, says STOMPer Beach Lover.

In his email:

"These pictures were taken at the beach at Kranji Reservoir.

"This beautiful beach which abounds with mangrove trees faces the Straits of Johor.

"As the waves keep pounding on the shore the soil has been eroded and now some of the tree roots are exposed (photo 1).

"If PUB does nothing about the situation the erosion of the coast will continue unabated.

"In the second picture you can see a tree being toppled as its roots have nothing to anchor on.

"I hope something is done fast before our Northern coast recedes away from the straits."
