    SINGAPORE: New initiatives may be on the cards for transport infrastructure in Joo Chiat.

    MP for Joo Chiat, Charles Chong, said this at a media briefing on Tuesday.

    He said more bus services, an MRT line and wider roads are needed more quickly because of the rising number of people living within his constituency.

    The constituency is also looking into stack parking, in which a hydraulic lift is used to place cars in spaces on top of each other.

    "I think for Joo Chiat SMC, the infrastructure needs to catch up, because the infrastructure is not meant to cope with this population density. A lot of condominiums, high-rise are coming up, whereas the roads are still meant to cater to landed properties, as in the past," said Mr Chong.

    The constituency also plans to further promote the arts and the area's rich cultural heritage, with the aim of encouraging interaction among residents.

    Siglap South Community Centre has already upgraded its various dance studios and music rooms, while improvements in its auditorium will be completed by the beginning of next year.

    Still road is considered wide ...

    the narrow ones are east coast road ..

    wonder why they want to widen the already wide road ... and do nothing ( or nothing can be done) to the really narrow ones ...

    Default District 15

    District 15 is a sensible choice.

    Nearer to CBD.

    especially with the Eastern Region Line coming up.

    No discrimination, but district 15 is becoming another little India as a lot of FT living there.
    I can see the rental also dropping there...

    Hope MRT can revive the place.
