Dear Island Hoppers
The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) is conducting maintenance and repair works on St John’s Island. To facilitate the works, parts of St John’s Island, including the holiday campsites and the lagoon will be closed to the public.
The beach and lagoon on Lazarus Island are still open to the public and accessible via the causeway from St John’s Island. Improvement works will be completed by the end of this year.
Separately, SLA is also conducting asbestos removal works on affected parts of Kusu Island after debris containing asbestos was discovered around the lagoon and beach. For public safety, the affected areas have been cordoned off and will remain closed to the public until removal works are completed.
Asbestos was not detected at the Da Bo Gong (Tua Pek Kong) temple, wishing well, tortoise sanctuary, temporary hawker centre, and jetty. These areas will remain open to visitors. SLA aims to complete the removal works before the start of Kusu Pilgrimage Season in October 2018.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Meanwhile, normal scheduled ferry services are not affected and will remain open.
