Rewilding of Rail Corridor (Central): Belt of native forest being restored

NParks and URA started on efforts to rewild Rail Corridor (Central) and restore a belt of native forest as part of enhancement works along the 4 km stretch on 20 October 2018. This belt of native forest will be an important passage, habitat and source of food for Singapore's native fauna, particularly those from the nearby Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. By removing non-native plant species to make way for a native-dominated forest, the rewilding efforts will ensure species recovery, increase the biodiversity of native flora and return the landscape to its original rainforest structure.
