The forested area, called Simpang, is where the new Ave 8 is being built. It is going to run parallel to Ave 2 and we all know how congested that road is.

Once the road construction is completed, you can jolly well bet more HDB gonna pop up. In fact, Simpang township has been on the cards since 1980s, and its about the size of Punggol.
Another Slumggol in making ... Slumberra as someone mentioned it ...

MRT station along this cluster can rename to Slumbawang, Slumberra and Yislum ...

Punggol is overly congested & not much amenities. You were saying?

Just saying those who bought ghost township flats never dwell into much after thoughts before their purchase.
Good luck to those who are buying into Canberra.

Better than staying in the West I guess. Eventually all shipyards, containers port, airbase moving to West side.

Sembcorp Marine at Sembawang is relocating to Tuas. Paya Lebar airbase is moving to Tengah Lim Chu Kang extension, container port in South moving to Tuas too.

Tuas got BTO? if no, unlikely to affect the people staying there.

But if sembawang area renew the coastal areas, might be a good place to enjoy the beach.

Eh, I know a few Slumgol owners and they are usually quite unhappy with their location. Specially those a bit further away from the MRT station.

Sembawang sucks. So far from everywhere. If I have to stay there I rather jump down from the block of flats and renew my life.
