|Lim Chu Kang Jetty|
The Lim Chu Kang jetty is used by fish farmers to send off their harvest to the local restaurants. There is a marine police post here to ensure users are genuine and not illegal immigrants. The post has several boats to patrol the area.
Lim Chu Kang Agro-technology Park
The Lim Chu Kang Agro-technology Park is bound by Lim Chu Kang Road and Neo Tiew Road. It was developed for companies involved in production of livestock, aquarium and food fish, vegetables, fruits, flowers and other plants, as well as for the breeding of dogs. To the east is the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
Lane 8 and 6C. The roads are lined with the Meninjau trees (gnetum gnemom) that are cultivated in kampongs throughout Southeast Asia for their edible leafy shoots and ‘fruit.’ The latter can be made into a sort of flour used to prepare the fried crackers known as keropok or embing. This is a most popular snack in Indonesia and frequently found with every meal.
At the end of Lane 8, we turned left on lane 6C leading to Lane 9 to explore all the way to the coast. Along this road are fish farms breeding dragon fish.
Returning to Lane 9, we continued on Lane 6C, 6, 5, 5A and 3 to arrive at Neo Tiew Road. Lanes 3 and 5 are popular access roads for traffic from Kranji side of Neo Tiew Road making the traffic along this stretch heavy. Along one of these roads we came across 3 durian trees fruiting. As it was already 1pm, we had no chance to pick up any fruits - probably already picked by the local workers early in the morning. Along these roads are planted trees such as nutmeg, butter fruit, langsat by AVA. The langsat are ripe and ready for eating.
|Neo Tiew Lane 2|
After refreshing ourselves at D'Kranji, we returned to Neo Tiew Road, and turned left towards Lim Chu Kang to take 975 back to Chua Chu Kang. Along here we passed Bollywood Veggies but were too tired to stop.
