An even older airport was here before the last one at Paya Lebar (remember that last MRT station?). If one were to look up the location of this station, one might be surprised that the airport of our little red dot was so close to the city! But like many others around the world, they were all built when the city hadn’t ‘put on weight’ and expanded waist-wise… heheh.
A river runs through with the same name and from the above pictures you might think its just a canal. And you’d be forgiven because the authorities here made sure that the river did not cause any trouble… with flooding etc. Lots of old places here, right up to the basin which today is a water recreation area.
Part of the MRT series here.
