The upgrading work will start early January and is scheduled to be completed by 2010. Under the government's Private Estate Upgrading Programme, the area will see its existing park enlarged. Residents can also look forward to the creation of a new park. The upgrading list includes covered drains to create pedestrian pathway, widened roadways, more trees, estate signages and rain shelters.
Three of the five MRT stations of the new Circle Line are within the estate. They are the Bartley, Serangoon and Lorong Chuan stations. Phase One of the Circle Line will start operating by June next year. A shopping mall will also be built on the land above the Serangoon MRT station.
With 3 MRT stations serving the Estate and one of the first few private Estate to receive upgrading, Braddell Heights Estate at the heart of Singapore population density centre, criss-crossed by the North East and Circle MRT Lines, is coming a choice location for private residence in Singapore.
