Govt White Paper recently

Postby PrimroseHill » Wed, 06 Feb 2013 3:37 pm

With the recent govt publication on the white paper on the increase in population to 6.9m by 2030, it was interesting to note that leases on golf courses may not be renewed. There were also an indication on the increase in hospitals, new housing as well as transportation.

I was wondering if there are plans or publications out that, that I can look at to see if the govt plans to create or knock down; e.g. a flyover outside my tattty condo or plans to build a super duper high speed rail service from Woodlands to Bangkok, for example.

There was an info-graphic map that showed where they planned to build new estates, and how many tens of thousands each would hold, where they planned to reclaim land, etc. Nothing as specific as your flyover though.
