WWII shell unearthed at West Coast Road

"WWII shell unearthed." The Straits Times, 04 Jan 2006.

An old artillery shell was discovered at a West Coast Road construction site yesterday, but was found to be harmless and not likely to explode.

Workers at the site found the shell, about 10cm in diameter and 30cm long, at about 10am yesterday. Police and the Singapore Armed Forces bomb disposal squad were called to the scene. Fortunately, the World War II shell was found to be inactive. The site was cordoned off and the shell was removed at about 2.45pm and taken away for disposal.
