About Woodlands

Woodlands, Singapore

 

is a suburban town in northern Singapore, part of the North West Community Development Council (Northwest CDC) district. It connects Singapore with Malaysia's southernmost city, Johor Bahru, by the Johor-Singapore Causeway.

 

 

History

 

The area consisting of modern-day Woodlands New Town first witnessed the opening of the Johor-Singapore Causeway in 1923. Early Woodlands consisted of villages and squatters where residents make their living mostly as small-time shopkeepers and vegetable farmers in the Marsiling area, while rubber plantations and poultry farms dot the landscape in Jalan Ulu Sembawang where modern-day Admiralty is located. The first HDB flats were built from 1972 in the northern part of Marsiling, and the Woodlands Bus interchange located at Woodlands Centre Road was built in 1980.. Woodlands subsequently expanded eastwards, and has now grown into a huge neighbourhood today..
