Jln Tenteram Developments

Anyone here knows about the amenities in this area?

How is the connectivity?

Is parking across at the private estate to walk over to save on parking feasible?

Do a search in this forum, plenty of feedback about how bad it is.

I've been a silent reader with no account, I stay at Tenteram Peak and I've decided to sign up for an account to help you out with your questions.

Amenities -
1. 24 hours Giant supermarket will be opening on the 30 August 2017.
2. Eating house is currently under renovation and has placed a "stalls for rent" banner.
3. There is a clinic and hair salon. The salon has completed renovations. The clinic is looking to hire staff.
4. Childcare centre will be opening soon.
5. 10 minutes walk to Whampoa Market.

Transportation / Connectivity -
1. If you drive, 10 minutes is all you need to get to town.
2. I assume not many people know there is a tunnel under the CTE expressway. You can walk from Tenteram Peak to Boon Keng train station in 20 minutes. (If you walk fast, maybe you can reach in 15 minutes time) Walk through the tunnel, pass the private apartments, temple, church. You will reach St. George's Road estate, continue walking till you see the under construction BTO, St. George's Towers. Walk on, you will arrive at Towner Road estate where Boon Keng train station is.
3. There is a bus stop opposite block 116A. Bus 21 and 129. Bus 21 goes to Shaw Plaza / Balastier Market / Zhongshan Mall / Novena train station.
4. You can walk (probably 8 minutes) to the PIE expressway bus stop, there are buses to Toa Payoh train station.

I don't quite understand your last question. Are you looking to park your car along the roads at the private estate area to walk over to Jalan Tenteram?
The roads along the private estate are very narrow and there is no way you can park your car.

Thank you.

Wow! 24 hour Giant? Very good.

Guess getting a PMD will speed things up.

Is the expressway noise really that bad? Is your unit facing directly? High, mid or low floor? Appreciate your sharing

Different people can handle noise differently. Since the project is completed, why don't you go there during morning or evening rush hour to experience the noise? I did this last time.

May I know if this is the route you are referring to?

I have been to the project numerous times. However, listening from the corridor is different from listening from within a unit.

Maybe can get a cheap decibel meter - http://www.straitstimes.com/singapor...cause-of-noise

Last time i bought an EMF meter cos the block i want has a substation across the road.

High floor unit facing the expressway. My parent’s home is also facing the expressway hence I am used to it and does not affect me. It is all about getting used to the noise.

In my opinion, the noise from the expressway is pretty consistent, once in while you do get supercars with loud exhaust sounds zooming past.

With the windows completely shut and air-con on, the noise will reduce significantly.

Of course it is best to visit Tenteram Peak and experience the noise.

Nope, this is not the route I am referring to. Google Maps does not show the tunnel under the CTE expressway.

Go to Street Directory map, you will see a black dotted line on the expressway beside Tenteram Peak MSCP.
