Good place to stay, the housing price is cheap and with upcoming bukit Canberra with park, hawker, swimming complex, gym, badminton courts, poly clinics, the place will surely be very nice to live in.

These facilities are very near to Sembawang MRT station too.

Can travel to Northpoint or Causeway Point, just a stone throw away.
Nowadays Sun Plaza has many Food outlets unlike last time.

just have to take note, even for any new residential areas i.e. Tengah or wherever, study its area plan carefully
espc flats that are surrounded by empty plots of land

its future development may or may not be to one's desirable preference
u know .. that nimby thingy :o

If you work an MRT, then Canberra is convenient. If you have to drive, you have to contend with traffic. Stay near Newton better.

Are u staying near there? You know when it will open? Saw online it say September? But no exact date yet
Early last year it was reported to open end of last year. Due to Covid restriction, it couldn't be opened and now no news about this.

If you like quiet quiet laid back living it's not bad. But the road connectivity is poor... Nearest expressway is a good 10+ min drive . But got mrt so if you don't drive it isn't too bad.

The price of hdb around the mrt has gone up since the opening of the mrt. Think the current owners will reap a handsome profits once mop

Nice place. A lot of wide open spaces and open skies.
Just that the gamma waves from the neighbouring Yishun can affect your psyche and turn u into siao lang.

One more thing : at night got F1 and MotoGP.

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.

north south corridor coming up, no need to go wlands ave 12 in future. you can go Yishun Ave 8 via Seletar Dam to CTE.
quite fast actually.
