    There's also the Deep Tunnel Sewage System (DTSS) tunnels now. Right now, we have around 40km of tunnels around 18-50m deep across the island. It's not in operation yet, so there are some pictures of it around. But when it becomes operational, the tunnels will probably be flooded so access will be restricted to remote probing.

    speaking of sewers....

    there's this drain that runs along orchard road, it used to be a stream or a river in the past right? Now it's converted to a stormdrain/sewer?

    We could still see parts of it, next to one of Somerset's main exit, and next to the "ex-john little" building, uncovered.

    some photo i found online

    It's still a canal, after the new Orchard Central building, there are still uncovered sections of it. Rainwater canals are different from sewers, their contents should never be mixed.

    Ah i see...coz it runs under the ngee ann building, i thought it would be covered for good liao. The constant funky smell at the back of ngee ann city makes me think it became a sewer for good.

    i like this site...lots of reference photos...old photos
