Short answer, no. I rate it worst than slumggol /longkang. For drivers, this can be the worst nightmare when u need to drive to any of the expressways, either you drive all the way to lentor, which obviously traffic jams all the way during weekdays or u go via woodlands avenue 12, which in most cases, you are making a u turn, driving to towards cte direction.

It’s nice if it’s near MRT. Time from Canberra to Bishan only 15 mins.

An equivalent flat in Bishan that is 15 mins from Bishan mrt cost double the price :)

And to add, the amenities near the Canberra flat is probably more than the Bishan flat.
you assuming that MRT never break down, or you no need take cab to those parts of town which are hard to access by public transport.

No. Why no?

1)It takes you 20mins to enter highway
2)not many varieties for suppers
3) not convenient if u don have a vechicle. Take grab to town can easily cost up to $20++. In short, take grab to anywhere is chor one

This is true, waiting for the new north south corridor which is few years away

me actually wanna say this in ur Yew Tee thread ytd but totally forgotten til' me saw this :s13:

my take is that it's a decent choice, not that ideal place for amenities, for now. still new & am sure there'll be future projects.
