URA Masterplan 2013
Remember I’ve mentioned about the Masterplan is due for update this year? Channel News Asia did a report on the draft Masterplan 2013 which should be exhibiting soon and will be then finalized by next year. Recently I had a discussion with a developer friend and we suspect that there might be some land intensification in this version.
Either intensity or not, this version of Masterplan would be exciting to look at since the current version based on 2008 with revisions of street blocks over the years was definitely deemed successful in terms of urban planning for the nation.
Marina Coast Expressway (MCE) to be opened on 29 December
Probably one of the most costliest expressway to construct (and the most expensive expressway ever built in Singapore), this 10th exciting expressway is set to debute by the end of the year. With this 5km that connects to mainly the Marina Bay area as well as major expressways including KPE, ECP and AYE, this will ease and definitely improve traffic landscape.
Exciting changes doesn’t really end there. This definitely benefits some of the residential and commercial elements along the expressway which has a sea view that was previously pegged by noise levels from ECP.
