Choa Chu Kang was a diverse area with old kampong housing and rubber plantations.
Interestingly Choa was the name of the first headman of the kampung. ‘Kang chu’ is a Teochew word where ‘kang’ refers to the riverbank, and ‘chu’ means owner. We used to have tigers roaming in the area.
Today, Choa Chu Kang has been modernised while still preserving the old heritage. For one, all the tigers have been displaced. HDBs had replaced the kampongs. Teck Whye area is the first residential area in Choa Chu Kang.
Choa Chu Kang is divided into seven different zones, namely Teck Whye, Keat Hong, Central, Peng Siang, Kranji, Yew Tee and Pang Sua.
The primary educational institutions include Choa Chu Kang Primary School, Teck Whye Primary School and Yew Tee Primary School.
The Secondary Schools in the neighbourhood are Choa Chu Kang Secondary School, Teck Whye Secondary School and Bukit Panjang Government High School.
Three tertiary schools at the moment are SHATEC Institutes, ITE College West and Pioneer Junior College.
Expected to be open in 2022, SAFRA’s new clubhouse in Choa Chu Kang Park will provide a range of fitness options for residents of northwest Singapore. In addition, visitors can enjoy a sheltered swimming pool with a park view, a running circuit above the clubhouse and an indoor children’s playground.
The west region will always remain Singapore largest manufacturing hub. Many jobs have been created here. One notable transformation is the Jurong Innovation District (JID) to better prepare and creates jobs for the future. This industrial district will create advanced manufacturing jobs, supporting an ecosystem of manufacturers, technology providers, researchers and education institutions.
Choa Chu Kang will be a district the one would love to live in.
