Nah, I doubt it. If they had found it, it would have made the news. Makes you wonder how they lost it in the first place. By the way, I wasn't able to get any pics of the construction site as I am having my uni test right now so I am kinda busy.

Darn, you qoute the post before I did! You sure are fast, man. Wow, from the looks of things, the progress of the demolition is going well. Very likely to be done by the end of the year.

National Stadium demolition nearly complete
By Jason Tan, Seet Sok Hwee | Posted: 01 December 2010 1532 hrs

SINGAPORE: The demolition of Singapore's National Stadium is almost complete, with the work already into its final phase.

The West Entrance Grandstand is all that is left of Singapore's iconic structure, which has stood since 1973.

Demolition work began in September, and is now expected to be completed in March next year.

It will be immediately followed by the construction of the long-delayed Sports Hub - projected to be ready by April 2014.

Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Vivian Balakrishnan visited the site on Wednesday, to observe the demolition process.

The Sports Hub will replace the National Stadium as Singapore's premier land and sea sports, leisure and entertainment hub.

Demolition works affecting business


Some businesses at the Kallang Leisure Park said the closure of roads because of the demolition work is affecting their businesses.

With the school holidays, families may spend time at the skating rink but those who drive may have trouble finding the place.

Signs have been put up to re-direct vehicles from the work site, but business owners at the Park said this is insufficient.

Louis Lee, who is a business owner at Kallang Leisure Park, said it is a bit difficult for people to come in to find the location unless they travelled by train.

He said, "Arriving here is a bit difficult. There used to be three entrances to go in, now there's only one entrance from Mountbatten.

"We'd like the government or LTA to give a big signboard to let people find an easier way to come in. That's very important to us to improve our business here."

Perhaps this undemolished part serves as the temporary roof of the construction office? It can get hot in the afternoons.
