Ah. It sounds like a station in verdant nature. Surrounded by 50 shades of green, one might imagine Woodlands station to be sweet smelling with flowers and music flowing from the birds…
Also the second station of the future Thomson East Coast line (TEL2), it will be a stop in a few years time (like 2020 or sometime close) that connects to a line going over to Johore Bahru… how convenient! Imagine seamless travel to Malaysia for your shopping and culinary fix… you need to be in the little red dot to understand our obsession to search for ‘cheap and good’ food… it’s almost a national pastime.
Now until that time there is a lot of construction going on here at the point Mel was in the neighbourhood. But that does not mean there is no kampung spirit around here! One more thing. Like Marsiling station (NS8), a lot here was undeveloped. Mel recalls vaguely the MRT line being constructed as he marched across newly cleared fields back in the early 90s. Wow, so much has changed.
