Extend car-free Sunday initiative

My family and I support Car-Free Sunday SG, and we have been present at every one so far.

Upon arrival at the Padang, we rent bamboo-recycled bicycles and tour the Central Business District area, travelling along places such as Fullerton Road, Shenton Way, Maxwell Road and Cecil Street.

Because of the overwhelming response from the public, I hope the trial, which is slated to last till next month, will be extended to the end of the year.

The organisers could also explore the possibility of closing Nicoll Highway, to expand the car-free zone. Perhaps suburban areas could have car-free zones too.
