    Default Are these places still open?

    As posted by Silvester some time back..thks.
    Anyone knows if these area are still open?

    I. SEMBAWANG ROAD
    Quite sure the site isn't fenced up, just yet. Briefly surveyed the site last year, clean, and no sign of rush evacuation. There are 7 blocks, a NPP in Block 6 Sembawang Road, and the Sembawang Community Centre near Block 2 Sembawang Road.

    I am quite familiar with the site at Sembawang Road, having frequent there a few years before, and hence I can greatly help with the direction and organisation of a trip to this site. This estate is serviced by SMRT 167 (Bukit Merah-Sembawang Road End) and SMRT 169 (Woodlands-Ang Mo Kio).

    II. SELETAR WEST FARMWAY
    *One the best location to select for a trip, in my point of view.
    In the Jalan Kayu Rural Central, while the dwelling blocks are within the Seletar West Housing Estate; I had checked the site on 3 July 2005. No direct bus service to the housing estate, but one could board SBS 86, SBS 103, or SBS 103X from Jalan Kayu Bus Terminal, alight after 5 stops and walk to the site 260m away (estimated time required: 5 minutes). Everything is pleasant over there, no quite much signs of being abandoned (or perhaps of its location; just abandoned months ago).

    III. HILLVIEW AVENUE
    All 14 housing blocks, a food centre and a market along Hillview Avenue are abandoned at this very moment. Accessible by SMRT 177, fetches you right to the front of Block 14 Hillview Avenue. Will be checking the site on 4 July 2005.

    IV. BOON TIONG ROAD
    Just discovered this newly abandoned site from the SERS. Need more information regarding the site. 16 HDB housing blocks are abandoned here.


    V. LIM CHU KANG ROAD
    *Not quite a fleasible choice to organise a trip.
    SMRT 975 ply on this road, and right into the area of the abandoned housing estate; 5 blocks: Block 1 is a Food Centre, Block 2 is a Wet Market, Block 3 to Block 5 are dwelling blocks.

    The Hillview estate is completed gone, looks like it never existed before, this is how it looks now.
