Protecting Chek Jawa
It remains urgent that we share with as many people as possible, the treasure that is Chek Jawa. Chek Jawa has no protected status.
The landuse plan by the Ministry of National Development shows some of the shores that may be lost by 2030. In the North, the plans include a road link (black line) from the mainland jumping off at Punggol, crossing to Pulau Ubin through Chek Jawa to jump off to Pulau Tekong before circling back to the mainland on Changi East. Proposed reclamation (in yellow) will bury Pasir Ris shores, Pulau Sekudu and Chek Jawa as well as a large amount of shore at Changi Beach. More in this blog post.
