What a shame: Jurong forest treated as dumping ground

What a shame: Jurong forest treated as dumping ground
STOMPer Robin Hood feels disappointed that this forested area in Jurong is so ill-maintained and polluted. He says:

"These pictures were taken at the forested area near Jurong Road, opposite Jurong Canal Drive.

"Some lorries come in the night to unload their garbage along this godforsaken road.

"You can see old ropes, cupboards, pails and even durian husks.

"Some lorries unload their building debris, concrete pillars, wooden boards and plastic bags.

"Even an old tyre was left behind and this has collected water and soon the mosquitoes will breed in abundance.

"There are no kerbs and many lorries and buses usually park on the side of the road resulting in the destruction of the turf.

"You can see deep tyre marks and on rainy days the tracks usually collect stagnant water.

"This is also a source of mosquito breeding.

"I hope NEA officials and the traffic police will visit this area more often to nab the culprits who have chosen to pollute the environment and cause damage to our roads."
