Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to gamble have urged the Singapore authorities in charge of land to act more slowly.

This after it was reported that sin-filled casino Marina Bay Sands is seeking to expand its territory, by acquiring land previously occupied by the East Coast Parkway (ECP) expressway, which closed down in late December last year to make way for the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE).

One Singaporean, Kee Puah Keow, said: “The authorities should act more slowly because if they give up the land to MBS so soon, people will know for sure that the closure of ECP to open the MCE is not a coincidence.”

Another local suggested that the government can act less decisively and issue statements saying that there has not been any formal talks to broach this topic or discuss this issue.

Lai Keh Seow, a local, said: “It is best to do this in a more subtle way that will not arouse the suspicion of the populace who will naturally conclude that a well-functioning ECP expressway had to make way to create more space for a casino.”
