    2013 Honda Civic 2013

    2013 Honda Civic is the first compact sedan to earn 'Top Safety Pick+' rating ?? US spec? To qualify for the 2013 TSP+ award, vehicles must earn good ratings for occupant protection in at least 4 of 5 evaluations and no less than acceptable in the fifth test. The evaluations include frontal and side impact tests, rear seat based impact test, roof strength test and the latest small overlap frontal impact test. According to Chuck Thomas, Honda's chief engineer in charge of collision safety, Honda took the opportunity to make some changes to the car's structure alongside with the facelift. Specifically, the 2013 Civic gets higher-strength materials to reinforce the cabin space together with some additional components in the structure and engine compartment. Although the styling of the latest Civic may appear too 'tame' to some, there is no doubt that it is one safe sedan for your family. Joining the Civic in receiving the coveted TSP+ rating include the 2013 Volvo XC60, Lincoln MKZ and the all new Mazda 6. Link: Civic 2013

  13. The 2013 Lexus GS will be unveiled tomorrow, but the first undisguised pictures have already hit the web. Looking like an enlarged IS with an hourglass grille, the production model has a sporty front fascia, LED-infused headlights and a dynamic rear end. Additionally, the cabin is slated to feature premium leather seats, a three-spoke steering wheel and a 12.3-inch infotainment system. Under the hood, engine options will likely include a 3.5-liter V6, a hybridized 3.5-liter V6 and possibly a four-cylinder diesel for Europe. Source: auto.sina.com.cn via Autoblog

    URA Masterplan 2013 (Draft)

    http://www.ura.gov.sg/MS/DMP2013?utm_campaign=DMP13&utm_source=urasocmedia&utm_medium=FBTW copies from condosg forum http://forums.condosingapore.com/showthread.php?t=19447 #3 5 Hours Ago dtrax Junior Join Date: Sep 2008 Posts: 2,388 -Keppel Golf course no more riaox.. turn to entire residential area. Orchid country club became reserve site -Updated town planning for bidadari and tamp north - duo residences hooters will huat big time with massive mix commercial/resi development at rochor centre combine with adjoining plot -Artas Residences @ Gardens by the Bay Last edited by dtrax : 4 Hours Ago at 03:53 AM. [sINGAPORE] The blueprint governing Singapore's development over the medium term identifies Holland Village, Kampong Bugis and Marina South as districts that will provide 14,500 new homes set amid thoughtfully designed, eco-friendly spaces. People will go to work, not just in the Central Business District, but also in new commercial areas such as the Woodlands Regional Centre, where 100,000 jobs will eventually be created. A new retail belt will come up at Marina Bay. These plans have been laid out in the Draft Master Plan 2013 of the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), which focuses on building townships for all ages that are green, healthy, connected and strong in community interaction and spirit. Six focal points underpin the plans:putting quality jobs closer to home; providing more housing options with good living environments; expanding green and play spaces; enhancing transport links and accessibility; strengthening Singapore's identity; and enlivening public spaces. No major adjustments to plot ratios are expected, save for areas identified for development, such as Bidadari and Punggol. In the area of decentralising work spaces, the URA will continue to grow regional centres such as Jurong Lake District, Tampines Regional Centre, Paya Lebar Central and one-north. The Woodlands Regional Centre, part of the North Coast Innovation Corridor, is to be the key commercial cluster in the north, the development of which will be kickstarted by the sale of a commercial site near Woodlands MRT station next month. This regional centre, to house northern Singapore's first business park cluster, could put 100,000 jobs on the market when it is fully developed in the next decade or so. Industrial parks such as Seletar Aerospace Park, Defu Industrial Estate and Lorong Halus Industrial Park will continue to be developed; existing industrial estates such as Tanjong Kling and Tukang Innovation Park, Tuas Biomedical Hub and Sungei Kadut will be rejuvenated by JTC Corporation to raise land productivity and keep businesses there competitive. But even as decentralisation plans are made, the city centre will continue to grow. New offices, retail space and homes, as well as redevelopment and sales sites near Tanjong Pagar MRT station are in the pipeline. The URA envisages a new shopping and entertainment belt along Bayfront Avenue, which will stretch from Marina Bay Sands to Marina Bay Station Square, which will create more jobs. As for housing, the land set aside in Holland Village, Kampong Bugis and Marina South makes up part of the land set aside in this Draft Master Plan for half a million homes. Most of the land will be for public housing. Holland Village will be extended by six hectares, anchored by a mixed development project that will have a parking station. Two other residential sites have been earmarked in that precinct, along with pedestrian-friendly streets and a community park. The 18-ha Kampong Bugis site is slated to become a high-density residential precinct offering around 4,000 private homes. The 21.5-ha Marina South area, just off Gardens by the Bay, is set to be turned into a mixed-use residential district offering around 9,000 private homes. Being explored is the idea of having an 800-metre-long underground mall and an elevated walkway from Bay South Gardens to the seafront. Development is expected after 2017 or 2018. Kampong Bugis and Marina South will be testbeds for fenceless residential communities and more pedestrian and cyclist-friendly designs. With creating green spaces a key thrust in this Draft Master Plan, one goal is to have 90 per cent of residents living within 400 metres of a park. Plans are in the works to create more than 60 km of nature trails, 360 km of park connectors and a 150 km Round-Island Route; 900 ha of reservoirs and 100 km of waterways are to be opened up for recreation. On the heels of the recently announced plans to boost public transport under the Land Transport Master Plan 2013, the URA will promote cycling-friendly environments with other agencies. All HDB towns will have their own cycling networks, and cycle paths will grow from 230 km to more than 700 km. In the area of enhancing the Singapore identity, the URA will preserve various landmarks; it plans to gazette more than 70 buildings for conservation, adding to the list of more than 7,100 buildings. The latest additions include the Queenstown Library, Alexandra Hospital and the former Commonwealth Avenue Wet Market. Neighbourhoods such as Holland Village, Serangoon Gardens and Jalan Kayu will join 15 other locations with distinct character, so that their vibe and unique qualities will be preserved and even enhanced. As for plans for Singapore further into the future, the URA envisages a Greater Southern Waterfront, where about 1,000 ha of land - freed up by moving out the City Terminals and Pasir Panjang Terminal from 2027 - will be developed. Plans for this area have not been finalised, but six concepts have been mooted. Among them are a plan to extend the city to this Southern Waterfront, creating a continuous seaside promenade linking places of interest and creating waterfront districts, each with its own character. The public are invited to give their feedback on the Draft Master Plan 2013, as well as for the new cycling routes and plans for the Greater Southern Waterfront. Views can be submitted at the Draft Master Plan 2013 website. The URA is holding a month-long exhibition at the URA Centre from today. __________________ "Never argue with an idiot, or he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."

The industrial property landlord and developer said yesterday that it will assist firms through the process of relocation. "We will definitely come in to facilitate. In terms of the timing, that's where we need to be practical and realistic and we need to accord sufficient time for the phasing out to happen," said JTC assistant chief executive officer of Cluster Development Group 2, Eunice Koh. She added that there will be clarity only in the year 2015 on what the Master Plan would entail for the three industrial estates, as the review of the plan is still ongoing. On whether it is certain that all firms currently located in the three areas will have to relocate, Ms Koh said: "We don't know the extent until 2015." The industrial estates at Sungei Kadut, Yew Tee and Kranji together house the operations of many firms from the furniture, timber, construction and engineering industries. JTC said that it currently does not have details on the number of firms with operations in these industrial estates. Ms Koh's comments were made yesterday after JTC held a closed-door meeting with some industrialists who have their firms in the affected areas, at the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI). The chamber helped to facilitate discussions between JTC, the industrialists and their respective trade associations. JTC is now working to help 116 firms whose leases expire between next year and 2019. The affected industrialists are worried about their future because of the uncertainty over the renewal of their leases. The Master Plan, which decides how land will be used in the future, is still in the works, although a draft is being made public today. At yesterday's meeting, JTC said the affected firms can apply to extend their leases until 2020. To do so, companies will have to fill in a one-page form. A JTC officer will then engage the individual firms and assess their application. Criteria that they will be assessed on include their value added and productivity projections over a three-year period, which starts from the time the lease extension is granted. Said JTC's Ms Koh: "There must be a productivity increment, so they have to declare it and at the end of three years we have to look at it again." "We are looking at whatever the members are achieving (currently), plus a certain growth. That is a reasonably achievable level . . . It is the spirit of improvement that we are trying to encourage." Ms Koh added that JTC hopes to process all applications by June next year. SCCCI president Thomas Chua said that industries such as the furniture and timber sectors are very happy with JTC's gesture. At the very least, it gives industrialists a timeline so that they can continue to make plans for the business, said Mr Chua in Mandarin. "We have come to a happy conclusion." Freddie Ng, president of the Singapore Timber Association, said: "Most of our members' leases expire in 2015 and 2016, so actually this is quite urgent . . . In view of (how) the Master Plan is still on review, JTC has come up with this solution to extend (our lease) to 2020, of course with certain criteria . . . so my members are definitely aware that they have to pay attention to productivity and value add." He added that JTC's offer is "very welcome" news because from now to 2020, my members have seven years to plan to bring in what is necessary to do value adding". Of the 116 firms whose leases are up in the next six years, 76 are from the timber trade. Tony Pang, assistant honorary secretary at the Singapore Furniture Industries Council, said that the five affected furniture firms - which include his company V-Mark Woodcraft - will now be able to continue with their business plans knowing that they have seven years, up till 2020, to work with. The offer to extend their leases means that the firms can "still continue with their business knowing that there is seven years to play with", said Mr Pang. "They can manage cost, they can rethink their business strategy for management in line with the new labour situation we are facing in Singapore right now, and then plan ahead for the future growth of the company. So this news we are getting today is very beneficial and we are very thankful for it." __________________ "Never argue with an idiot, or he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."

Specifically, the 21.5 ha of development area in Marina South will yield about 9,000 private homes. Development will start after 2017/2018, when the Thomson Line is nearer completion. Residents and visitors to the area will be able to shop in an 800m long underground mall between the two Thomson Line stations serving the area, namely Marina South and Gardens by the Bay. This frees up the ground-level space above the mall for a pedestrian walkway. Separately, an elevated landscaped walkway will take pedestrians from the Bay South Gardens to the seafront; cycling paths will thread through other parts of Marina Bay. In a district to shape up as one of Singapore's most environmentally friendly, fewer cars could well be seen on its roads - courtesy of a network of underground carparks that the URA is looking into. If feasible, these carparks will enable motorists to drive from one building to another while underground. Taking a helicopter view of the Greater Southern Waterfront area, the URA has outlined six broad ideas that will guide the development of the area: Opportunities to live, work and play: Projects will integrate residential, commercial and recreational use. Labrador and Marina South could become lively mixed-use residential districts offering fenceless developments equipped with community amenities. Pulau Brani could offer opportunities for sustainable island living and leisure activities in the longer term. Extension of city to waterfront: There will also be an opportunity to create a waterfront city seamlessly integrated with the rest of the city, along with a waterfront central business district. More public spaces: The Central Linear Park could be extended, and a pedestrian axis towards the waterfront could be created. This axis could be designated car-free, opening up avenues for vibrant street life. A 30 km waterfront: This could stretch from Labrador to Marina South. Green, open spaces: An eco-corridor could provide an unbroken connection between the Gardens by the Bay and the island-wide green network. Embedded in this corridor would be inviting public spaces for community interaction and events. Possible reservoir: A future reservoir could be created between Tanjong Pagar and Pulau Brani to retain rainwater from the Greater Southern Waterfront and store excess water from Marina Reservoir. __________________ "Never argue with an idiot, or he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience."

  24. Driver and passenger rescued from mangled taxi after AYE accident Posted on 23 October 2013 ST PHOTO: NEO XIAOBIN A serious accident involving a tipper truck, a lorry, and a taxi occurred this morning on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE). STOMPer Bary John sent in a photo of the accident to STOMP. According to a report in The Straits Times, a section of the AYE just before Tuas West had to be closed due to the accident. The driver of the taxi and his passenger were trapped inside the vehicle. They have been rescued by SCDF personnel and sent to hospital. The accident occurred at about 9.36am along the AYE towards Tuas close to the Tuas West Exit. How the accident occurred has not been established. cdman_frankie on Wed, 10/23/2013 - 15:16 Passed by at 0850hrs and saw the accident involving the tipper lorry loaded with wet clay, the taxi, one covered van, one 14 footer lorry and one passenger car. The tipper landed on its side and was supported by the taxi which right side was trapped by the center divider railing. Taxi driver was rescued about one hour later with applause from the onlookers and he managed a weak wave to thank them. A total of 5 passing lorry crane which passed by had helped to lift the tipper off from the taxi. SCDF had to cut open the top of the taxi roof top and rescued the passenger about two hours later. I am glad that there are still good souls on the roads who stopped their lorry crane to help, nearby construction workers came and assisted in securing the lifting belts and scooping out the clay out from the taxi interior.
