This video has started circulating on social media. It looks as if work on the land reclamation off Gurney Drive and Straits Quay is going full steam ahead. The gobbling up of the commons mostly for private profit.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for the fisherfolk of Tanjung Tokong to go out fishing, thanks to the 760-acre land reclamation and property development project off Tanjung Tokong and the 130-acre reclamation project along Gurney Drive for another property development project and an eight-lane highway, with Gurney Wharf thrown in.

This is the sad state of Gurney Drive today as land reclamation work is in progress for a massive property development project on the western end (in front of Gurney Plaza).
