Can don’t reveal? Cos moi scare tio expose I always read Edmw while waiting for 883 de... :(:(

Yeah I love it now cos not much people esp at night, so peaceful and quiet. I blast my surround sound watch saving private Ryan at night also no need scare cos no neighbours yet. Go eat or shop also no need wait.

But ED construction damn dusty la, my house exterior freaking dirty due to rain and dust. And HDB quality now damn jialat, I move in 3 months only got so many hairline crack on my wall and ceiling. I think next year first year anniversary will ask contractor to come in patch and paint everything one shot. Sian.

That's the bad thing about having construction site nearby. I am also affected by the dust from east delta.

Now people say is a ghost town, 2 years later will be very different. MRT will be up by then making public transport very convenient. Road connecting to yishun ave 8 will also be up in 2 years time so drivers can bypass the yishun town to get to expressway. The town just need more eateries.

Oh, come 2019 all the best to NSL stations after Yishun... nowadays go work I go Sembawang take train already so packed. Next time got Canberra with all the new residents, don’t know how Yishun Siaolangs and AMK peepur gonna board. Last time I stay YCK already have to wait 2-3 trains during rush hour.

The long term plan is for TEL to provide alternative travel options parallel to the NSL....

Is East Delta the final project in the Canberra area?

No. The empty plots parallel to the mrt lines are earmarked for HDB. You can see it in the URA master plan and news reports. They already start building the road for that area, in fact finishing liao...

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.

People saying ghost town and i quote punggol as ghost town few years back. You were thinking?

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.
