Bye-bye Ubin

So much for the peace and quiet of Pulau Ubin. The Kekek Granite Quarry in Ubin will restart work in about three to six months.

Re-opening the quarry is part of the Singapore government's plans to make up for the granite shortfall facing Singapore, after supply was disrupted from Indonesia last month. There are also plans to protect the marine life and surrounding environment on Ubin, to make sure they are not affected by the mining.

Don't bother. If you are going to mine Ubin, the environment there is history. Gone, kaput, bye-bye! You want to protect the envirnoment, don't mine there. If you're going to mine there, don't waste money on a useless show. The envirnoment there will die if there's mining. It's just a matter of time.
