Drivers, Here’re the Areas in S’pore Most Likely to Flood Besides Tanjong Pagar According to PUB


It goes without saying that when the rain gets too heavy, flash floods can occur. Case in point, Tanjong Pagar for the past few days.

On Monday, flash floods were reported at the junction of Craig Road and Tanjong Pagar Road, as well as Maxwell Road (South Bridge Road), as I’m sure most of you are aware by now.

Floods are not a very frequent sighting in Singapore.

Flash Floods Frequent Low Lying Areas

Floods also tend to frequent low lying areas as well. Recent floods began as early as last year Christmas, as Paya Lebar and Upper Thompson were both hit by flash floods. Last week, the junction between Upper Thompson Road and Jalan Lembah Thomson was flooded as well. I guess Upper Thompson is one of the areas to avoid in heavy rain.

For other locations in Singapore, did you know that PUB had released a list of locations and roads that are considered flood prone, with a history of flooding? The document is available online, or you can just take a look below.

Flood Prone Areas


This list is best used with a daily weather forecast, so you can prepare for possible flooding during heavy rain. Bring a change of clothes, plan alternate parking areas, and whatever else you need to stay dry this season. It’s shaping up to be a really, really wet season.

If you’re lazy and don’t feel like planning for something that only happens ‘once every 50 years’, you could also opt for an SMS alert from PUB. PUB offers SMS alerts on heavy rain warnings roughly 15 to 30 mins in advance, as well as high water level alerts for key canals and drains. You can subscribe to their service on their website here.
