Gahmen is evicting residents of Pulau Ubin to build a bloody ADVENTURE PARK?!

Some residents on Pulau Ubin appear to be facing resettlement to make way for a possible adventure park. They have been sent a letter telling them that their homes are slated for "clearance". The Housing Board document said officers will visit their premises to conduct a "census survey" and determine their "eligibility of resettlement benefits". It also suggested the houses will be making way for an adventure park on the 1,020 ha boomerang-shaped island, which is home to some of Singapore's last kampungs. No details were provided but the last time a project like this was mentioned was in 1993. Back then, it was reported that the Government would acquire 254 ha of the private land on Pulau Ubin within the following year, partly to create an adventure park.
