Supposedly named after Sir Cecil Clementi (not sure which one), this new town is said to have been built over old military barracks. Well we can believe that, since there are still installations for the provost and medical teams of the Singapore Army in nearby Ulu Pandan road.
In and around the station itself there is the usual town shops and food centers. But if one were to venture a little further, one will find remnants of a railway that once ran from Jurong through parts of Clementi towards Malaysia. Got you interested to touch this part of the little red dot?
Part of the MRT series here.
