The Sengkang Sports & Recreation Centre and the Anchorvale Community Club have been a very popular hangout for many residents of Sengkang and Punggol. Besides numerous education and music centres, restaurants such as Brewerkz and McDonald’s, many community activities are also being organised.
The carpark situation has always been challenging and we have increased the capacity by building a 2-level carpark extension and adding more curbside parking lots. The soon to be completed new BTO opposite the hockey stadium will also offer residents an alternative parking location at the HDB MSCP in the near future.
I have received many complaints and feedback about the current coupon parking system as insufficient display of coupons often led to summons being issued. Many residents feedback that at times, they may be delayed or held up while waiting for their children to finish their enrichment classes. This has caused much distress amongst those affected.
After discussing with the management of the Sports Council and Anchorvale CC, we have decided to adopt the electronic parking system from 1st July 2012, which charges according to the time spent in the carpark. This is a fairer system and visitors will not have to worry about insufficient display of carpark coupons resulting in unnecessary fines.
