As a Northie myself – yes, that is an actual term that people identify with – I strongly relate with the hype that’s been surrounding this spanking new “commodity”. 

Not all of us have been through the struggle of navigating for the closest MRT station after that one class party at your rich friend’s place – which happens to be located right smack in between Yishun and Sembawang.

But I’m pretty darn sure that this one’s a thought that has occurred to the majority of the masses, “why do atas people live in ulu places?”

Speaking of ulu, the Canberra area used to be the physical embodiment of the word.

Inevitably, years of development have paved the yellow brick road to what is now a sea of BTOs, dreams, and possibilities for the coming generation of homeowners.

The brand new station itself was just the cherry on top. What an upgrade! 

Better yet, you can now be neighbours with your atas friend from secondary school! 

It’s the the Glo Up that Canberra deserved

So what’s there to look forward to when the station opens on 2 November 2019?

According to the Land Transport Authority (LTA), Canberra Station will make the trip to Orchard or Jurong East up to 10 minutes shorter. Both Jurong East and Orchard will be just 10 stops away. That’s the entire Singapore right at your doorstep – after a 10-minute walk – but still. 

But wait, there’s more. Apparently, the highly-anticipated station, comes with some pretty cool facilities as well. Of course, the adverb itself is subjective. But you get where I’m coming from. It’s from a Northie’s perspective.

According to sources, the station will have a link bridge, a handful of sheltered walkways to bus stops, and more than 500 bicycle parking lots.

How insanely convenient is that?

Alas, long gone are the days of weathering through the harsh conditions that we have all faced during those long walks between Yishun and Sembawang.

I’m looking at you, mosquitoes. Long gone also are the drastically long-winded bus routes, and Singaporeans are fairly pleased.

Tick tock goes the clock and we’re less than a month away. As quoted from an atas friend of mine, “Wah, I can’t wait for Canberra to open. It’s on the 2nd of next month,” mind you he recited this like a personal mantra.

Personally, we can’t wait to see what’s in store so count us in!
