I read with great dismay about the Halifax Road area — where there are several colonial houses, some of which are occupied by pre-schools — having to make way for the road work for the new North-South Expressway (“Pre-schools along Halifax Rd given ‘final’ 1-year tenancy”, May 3).
I find it rather shocking that these buildings may be bulldozed — is there no other way to construct the highway? I wrote to the Urban Redevelopment Authority to inquire about this matter on May 3 but have yet to receive a reply from it.
Would the relevant authorities care to comment what the plans are for the houses?
