SINGAPORE: Authorities will be replanting three times the number of trees that were removed on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE), due to ongoing road widening works.
On the stretch of the PIE, from the Eng Neo to Lornie Road exits, mature Rain trees that used to be in the centre of the highway have disappeared.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said most of the felled trees were too big to be transplanted and even if transplanted, their survival rates would be very low.
Instead, the LTA said it will be replanting intensively at available spaces on the highway and this will be carried out in tandem with the road widening project.
