Bishan was actually a combination of 4 separate and compact estates - Shunfu, Bishan East, Sin Ming and Bishan North, which are redevelopment areas after the cemeteries and villages are cleared, with Shunfu developed first tapping onto the transport and services along Upp Thomson Road. In fact, back in the 80s before URA took over the comprehensive islandwide landuse planning, the alignment of the MRT line was determined by transport planners rather than urban planners, and the decision by the transport planners to site the station basically catalysed the development of Bishan East and Central, and subsequently Bishan North after the station opened.

Tengah is a greenfield site which is planned from scratch, so I will expect HDB to adopt the Punggol model, which was to start from the edge from Sengkang and grow northwards and westwards. In the case of Tengah, Hong Kah North is the obviously choice as the location of the first BTOs, due to the availability of services on the Jurong Easr side, and the immediate connection by JRL with a station just 1.2km away from Jurong Gateway.

They have not made the official announcement. From my understanding, the original plan was to have the first BTO anytime before 2020, which means the first BTO may be completed by 2022-23, before JRL completes. However, that will also depend on the demand in the next few years. One indication for the public is to watch the BTOs in Bt Batok West. Once all the land is exhausted, then HDB will move very quickly to develop Tengah.

http://www.hdb.gov.sg/cs/infoweb/res...at/new/bto-sbf

After the next mega BTO project launch in Bt Batok West next month, I think there should be 3 remaining large parcels of land remaining for HDB flats based on the URA master plan. Each parcel should yield around 1500 units each, and should be able to cover the rest of the 7 BTOs for the next 2 years, after which HDB should start to launch the BTOs in Tengah, that's 2018, or earliest 4Q2017. URA will also launch the only commercial and apartment mixed use site in Mar 2016, which will most likely launch for sales in early 2017. The rest of the residential parcels on the hilly areas next to Bt Batok Polyclinic are reserved for 5 storey condominiums and landed housing.

http://www.ura.gov.sg/uol/media-room.../pr15-66a.aspx

For the 2018 launch, HDB may announce and display the Tengah master plan by 3Q2016 or 3Q2017, when they usually hold the PEAK forum and public exhibitions. This means that the schedule for the first BTO for Tengah may be made known at 3Q2017 too. Another date to watch out is 4Q2018, when LTA is expected to launch the Land Transport Masterplan 2018.

SI rigs along Nanyang Drive

Some pictures I took of a few SI as located in the map below. I wonder what they are for.

Location is similar to what as proposed in the NTU masterplan. Very likely to be JRL.
