Million dollar park connector, but cheapskate pathway

Million dollar park connector, but cheapskate pathway
STOMPer Landslide was appalled to see the muddy pathway that passed off as an entrance to the Pang Sua park connector.

Says the STOMPer:

"I stay at Yew Tee and I am very excited to use the new Pang Sua park connector linking Yew Tee to Choa Chu Kang, all the way to Zheng Hua park.

"Yesterday, I decided to go with my family down to the park connector, we made our way using the one and only entrance nearest to our house, which was just beside The Quintet Condo.

“However, we were shocked to see the slippery mud path which was dug to represent a flight of stairs.

"What if some elderly person or kids head down to the park connector this way? What if they slip and fall?

"It is very evident from the photos that this is an opening to the park connector but the authorities were probably short of funds or just cannot be bothered to build a concrete pathway and staircase for residents.

"This is a million dollar park connector which took nearly one-and-a-half years to complete.

"But this new park connector is furbished with a lousy, cheapskate mud path and stairs!

"I hope the National Parks Board can explain why."

I don't think that's even an official path to the park connector; it's most likely just the result of scores of people creating a path by taking a convenient shortcut and trampling all over the grass.

I believe that instead of complaining about lack of funding or apathy to explain the lack of a proper path in this location, this person should take the initiative to find out where the actual entrances are in the first place.
