Singapore's longest green corridor was unveiled on Sunday morning by the National Parks Board (NParks) and the South West Community Development Council (CDC).

When completed by the end of 2014, Tengah Nature Way will be lined with trees and shrubs to help the movement of small animals like birds and butterflies.

The 13-km stretch will connect the Bukit Timah and Central Catchment Nature Reserves in central Singapore, to the Western Catchment area where the SAFTI live-firing area is located.

It will comprise community gardens and greenery planted along roads in residential areas to bring biodiversity closer to the neighbourhood.
