Indeed . . . this and the question as to what sub-atomic matter is released during fission have always haunted me.

We had a discussion in office today of the shortest street name. A colleague decided to call mightyminds (publishers of the street directory). According to them Anchorvale Walk (in Sengkang) is the shortest street in Singapore.

Hmmm.... maybe I should now start looking for the longest road in Singapore. A few long roads come to mind. They are
Alexander Road
Yio Chu Kang Road
Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim

Upper Thomson Road is quite long as well.

Btw, I lived on Palm Road before, Siglap area. A street not longer than 100m.

And the one 'mirroring' bukit timah, which is Dunearn Road? Same length?

Well, technically Bukit Timah changes it's name to Upper Bukit Timah, still consdiered the same road?

Dunearn is the NW >> SE mirror image of Bukit Timah, but not Upper Bukit Timah which is 2-way.

East Coast Rd may be longer... ?

What about Lim Chu Kang Road? Very l o n g.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Like with Bukit timah, east coast road changes to upper east coast road as of Siglap road junction. But it is quite along road indeed, as is Lim Chu kang road.
