Residents of Block 130 – 146 Choa Chu Kang Ave 1/ Teck Whye Lane/ Teck Whye Ave can look forward to the proposal and design of the upcoming Neighbourhood Renewal Program (NRP) in the precinct. There are many improvements awaiting you, such as new covered linkways, pavilions, Barrier Free-Access Ramps and extended sheltered corridors. The best part about all these wonderful projects is that you do not need to pay a single cent. NRP is fully funded by the Government, and it will be implemented by Chua Chu Kang Town Council.
The NRP Public Consultation will be held at Chua Chu Kang CC Multi-Purpose Hall on Saturday, 6 September 2014, 10am – 12pm. During the Public Consultation, you can share your views and suggestions on the NRP plan with the Town Council as well as show your support for the NRP by completing and submitting the NRP survey form to us.
The NRP is a golden opportunity to upgrade and improve the estate through the renewal and provision of additional facilities. The NRP can only proceed if we receive more than 75% of our residents’ support. We look forward to your participation and support.

We would like to keep you updated on our efforts to address the recent outbreak of dengue fever cases in our neighbourhood. This outbreak is unprecedented because our estates have had a good track record in the past against dengue. Since the beginning of the outbreak, NEA officers have intensified their inspections for Aedes mosquito breeding at all residential premises and construction sites in the area.
We encourage residents to be vigilant against mosquito breeding in the homes. Based on NEA’s current inspections, about 80% of mosquito breeding sites were found in our residents’ homes. The external areas such as construction sites, shopping centres and surrounding areas form the remaining 20% in total. This is why we are focusing our efforts on the importance of controlling the Aedes mosquito breeding within our homes.
CCC, NEA & the Town Council also wishes to update you on the steps that have been taken to control the dengue situation in Chua Chu Kang Town.
NEA and the grassroots volunteers have been working together to visit affected areas closely over the past few weeks. Most recently, 120 Keat Hong grassroots leaders and residents visited the 44 blocks that were affected by dengue on 13 July 2014 where dengue prevention packages were given out. These packs included educational materials, mosquito repellent and pesticide. Another visit is scheduled for 20 July 2014.
Mass Fogging has been conducted by the Town Council at Blk 196, 296A-E/ Blk 297, 297A-D Choa Chu Kang Ave 1/2 and Blk 271-295 Choa Chu Kang Ave 2/3. We will continue to carry out fogging in open space areas when necessary.
The Town Council has also been vigilantly inspecting for potential dengue breeding in areas such as the drains, rooftops, pump rooms, carparks, trees & playgrounds for the past few weeks. We have also started replacing concrete drainage slabs with metal gratings. This ensures that stagnant water will not be collected underneath the slabs and it allows for checks to be carried out easily.
We encourage all residents to allow NEA to perform ULV misting in the homes to reduce the potential for dengue outbreaks in your home. Please call NEA at: 8308 3482 / 8393 4264 from Monday to Friday (9am to 4pm) to request for an appointment.
We hope that residents continue to take all necessary precautions to keep safe from dengue. We empathise with any families that have been affected and wish you well in your recovery.
