Gate to Labrador rocky shore permanently locked from 10 Jun 09

Labrador shore is our last mainland location with a reef, seagrass meadows, rocky shore and coastal cliffs.

It was a favourite destination for school trips. Many kids probably had their early encounters with their own shores on Labrador.

Unfortunately, this shore has been severely impacted by massive works nearby at Pasir Panjang and Sentosa. It is probably good to give it a rest.

Thanks to the alert by Siva on his Labrador blog and Andy: From the NParks Labrador page click on link 'History and Attractions'
*The rocky beach is a fragile marine ecosystem which needs preservation. Gate to the rocky beach will be permanently locked from 10 June 09 onwards.

**For group visit, please write to Nparks_mailbox@nparks.gov.sg with the title 'Application for Visiting Labrador beach' , and furnish following details. Date and time of visit, no. of people, activity detail, organisation name, address and tel no.; contact person's name and h/p no.

There is also a gate to the jetty where fishing takes place on the Labrador shore.

I wonder whether the gate to the fishing jetty will also be locked?

I checked out Labrador last month (May 09) and here's a post on the trip including details of the issues impacting this shore and many links to more information about Labrador.
