How to Reach

By Train

The intra-town Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit (LRT) system is a 7.8 km light rail line that serves to link residents to the town centre and to the nearby town of Bukit Panjang, hence the line's name.It is a fully automated system and its rolling stock is supplied under the design of the Bombardier Innovia APM 100.The system is currently operated by SMRT Corporation.

By Bus

Bus services are available at the Choa Chu Kang Bus Interchange which is connected to the Choa Chu Kang MRT/LRT Station and the town's central shopping mall Lot One Shoppers Mall.It was opened in 1990 with 12 bus services, all operated under SMRT Corporation.Bus services at the interchange allow residents from Choa Chu Kang New Town to travel to other parts of the country, including the Central Area while some are specifically used to travel around the Choa Chu Kang town and even to Yew Tee.The bus interchange currently only has 12 services; 11 of which are SMRT Buses (including 3 intra-town services), the other a special free shuttle to Qian Hu Fish Farm.Typically passenger traffic is often very high in morning and evening peak hours.

By Road

The Kranji Expressway (KJE) links Choa Chu Kang New Town up with Singapore's expressway network.With the KJE, drivers can change onto the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) which in turn, is connected to the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) which travels to the Central Area and the eastern parts of Singapore.As the town is surrounded by the towns of Bukit Panjang, Bukit Batok, Bukit Gombak and southern Woodlands, many roads (old and new) have been constructed to link Choa Chu Kang into other towns which eventually allows residents to other parts of the country by either bus, train, car or any other reliable means of transportation.

Choa Chu Kang Mega Playground

Limbang Park

One of the unusual Singapore sights that I found at Limbang Park was a mini-zoo of animals cast in stone.Whether you are a tourist or a local, the twelve stone statues of the 12 animals as sighted in the Chinese Zodiac will surely impress.At Limbang Park, you do not need to wait 12 long years to catch sight of these Zodiac animals.In less than twelve minutes you would be able to snap a photo with each of them at this park located at Choa Chu Kang Street 5, Singapore.Other Singapore sight at Limbang Park that would fascinate visitors would be a wobbly suspension-like bridge.Walking across this bridge was fun as it required good posture and adequate balance to cross the wooden steps without holding on to the railings.Other Singapore sights at the spacious Limbang Park enticed visitors of all ages to linger.A children's playground should attract kids interest while a senior citizen's exercise corner should find company with others.Youngsters would rejoice at the courts for basketball and street soccer.
