ORCHARD ROAD TO BE FULLY PEDESTRIANISED TO ENCOURAGE MORE PEOPLE TO SHOP?

There are plans that was recently announced to make Orchard Road fully pedestrianised. The Minister for Trade and Industry, S Iswaran, announced this at a tourism industry conference, where he reiterated that a few government bodies such as the LTA and URA have to work together to make this a reality.

The plan is to make the shopping belt fully pedestrianised as part of bold plans to transform the precinct into a distinctive shopping and lifestyle destination. But can such a plan take off? Even the most famous shopping streets in the world, like NY's Times Square, or Japan's Shibuya District, are actual streets with vehicular traffic.

MAN WHO KNELT IN MIDDLE OF ORCHARD RD TO PACIFY GF EXPLAINS WHY HE DID IT

(Sorry I won't be telling the reasons as I still need more time to accept the truth). Personally, at that time i felt that kneeling was a way to show sincerity. When people propose they also kneel to show sincerity, chivalry is not dead.
