Thread: South Buona Vista Road

  1. #1

    Default South Buona Vista Road

    Anyone took bus 200 down from Science Park 1 towards Haw Par Villa on this road? Windy and looks like its near some secret facility? I checked on streetdirectory and it seems to be cutting thru kent ridge park and there's 1 restricted area marked. I remember seeing 1 bus stop named "LP47".. sounds like some landing point number and there seemed to be some very old buildings camouflaged by foilage..

    but hey... who knows that the satellite dish might be charged up with ion cannon beam to zap intruders !

    "LP47" refers to the lamp post number the bus stop is closest to. There's also LP48, LP36, LP30 for that route.

    Haa haa some things are better left unknown. Won't do any good knowing too much. Well the structure could be anything, restricted may not mean secret, it may just mean a location of importance, like for example you water treatment plants and some treatment rooms near reservoirs.
