District 24

Kranji, Lim Chu Kang, Tengah

Located in the northwestern part of Singapore, District 24 is occupied fully by Lim Chu Kang. This area is characterized by its abundant foliage, the few remaining farms in Singapore, a jetty, a forest reserve, numerous campsites and cemeteries.

Overview

Tengah is a new future HDB town, and one of Singapore’s emerging new townships as part of the Government’s plan to provide a greater supply of affordable housing, designed with the unique character of being a forest town. Developed on what used to be an area primarily catered to military use, the new housing development plans have been announced – with re-development in the area already in the works, this will make Tengah Singapore’s newest entrant into the Housing and Development Board’s new township masterplan, since the development of Punggol in the 1990s. Tengah will have an area of it, namely the southwestern region – earmarked as part of the upcoming Jurong Innovation District, a newer industrial development plan.

Lim Chu Kang

Lim Chu Kang is a place renowned for its farms and cemeteries, with Singapore’s largest cemetery in the area. Founded in the early 1900s by Neo Tiew, a Chinese immigrant, Lim Chu Kang was formerly known as Ama Keng Village. After the founding of the village, Neo Tiew established Kay Wah School, now known as Qihua Primary. He also commissioned the construction of the Kay Wah Temple, which still exists today.

During the Second World War, the Japanese surprised the British by invading Singapore via the Causeway. Located near the Causeway, it is in Lim Chu Kang that several of the fiercest and bloodiest battles were fought, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths.
