about love our macritchie forest
The Love MacRitchie movement is a collective effort among various nature groups in Singapore, including Cicada Tree Eco-Place.
It was launched in 2013 in response to the LTA’s announcement of the new Cross Island MRT Line (CRL), which was proposed to tunnel through the MacRitchie Forest, a precious yet fragile ecosystem.
Over 12,000 signatures were collected as part of a petition urging authorities to rethink the plans.

Appeal to the Land Transport Authority (LTA) Singapore, to avoid conducting works related to the Cross Island MRT Line (CRL) within the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR). Provide feedback to LTA: LTA_CRL_CCNR_EIA@lta.gov.sg. Do share it widely with your friends and the public. Continue writing in after the deadline, so that we can have an engaged and informed discussion together.
