Set to become Singapore's 24th Housing Board town, there have been plans to develop Tengah into Singapore's largest smart, sustainable town, with its surrounding greenery giving rise to the name "Forest Town".
Tengah is a secondary forest patch and previous military training ground that connects the Western catchment area to the Central catchment. Enviro Pro conducted a Biodiversity Impact Assessment under contract of Parsons Brinckerhoff for the proposed railway alignment.
Working with 4 specialist surveyors, Enviro Pro also compiled a biodiversity inventory of Odonates, Rhopalocera, Mammals, Aves and Herptiles. Conducted direct and indirect impact analysis for the proposed work to prepare a Biodiversity Management Plan, reducing impact to fauna during construction.
Key study methods:
Active Transect Survey - 6 taxa groups of flora and fauna surveyed.
Camera Trapping - 8 camera traps installed for a period of 4 weeks.
