    Default Is this part of the island accessible?

    Does anyone know whether the plot of land above Yishun ave 6 is accessible? Is it a restricted area?



    Thanks

    That area looks like where the foreign workers' quarters are located, not restricted (if so it would be greyed out by google maps)
    It does look rather ordered, trails and man-made ponds?

    I also thought the road going straight from Ave 1 (instead of turning left to Ave 6) was closed ... seems like I'm mistaken
    Lovers haunt if I recall correctly

    Really? haha... I just feel that it might be a nice place for some landscape shoots... but I won't know till I get there.

    There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

    No, its known as Simpang Training Area. Enter these places at your own risk. However, the garmen wants to turn the area into a new housing estate one day.

    was there. this area is called khatib bongsu. a fishing pond deep inside. with mangrove swamps. now, cannot be sure if it is still open to public. some time ago, heard news that MOD will be taking over the area. any updates, if it is still open to public now? tks.

    it's a military training area, was there for exercise last yr. gate is locked and manned during exercise. there's holes in the perimeter fencing that anglers sneak through with their bicycles. i don't think you'll be able to drive in or hike to the coast, way too far and the commando mozzies will get you too. it does have a very nice sunset though.
