SINGAPORE: There is now a deck covering a section of the Siglap Canal.

The makeover is part of an initiative called the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters Programme, under the PUB, to take advantage of the potential of Singapore's water bodies. The canal, which runs between Bedok Reservoir Road and the sea, passes through estates like Kembangan and Marine Parade.

The revamp is meant to give residents an ideal space for community activities such as line dancing.

Social and Family Development Minister and MP for Marine Parade GRC Tan Chuan-Jin, who was at the official opening of the project on Saturday (Dec 5), also sealed a special SG50 Time Capsule.

The capsule is an initiative by the Kampong Chai Chee Citizens' Consultative Committee and contains items from key events this year, such as a Southeast Asian (SEA) Games medal. It will be opened in 25 years’ time in 2040.
