History of Fernvale Sengkang

Sengkang town is divided into 7 subzones, and Fernvale is one of them. Others include Lorong Halus North, Sengkang West, Sengkang Town Centre, Anchorvale, Compassvale, and Rivervale.
Fernvale being part of Sengkang shares history. A road in the area named Lorong Sengkang inspired the name Sengkang. The area now Sengkang was once home to plantations. Crops such as pepper, rubber, and pineapple were dominant in this region. It was also home to a fishing village called Kengkar, which refers to the “foot of the port.”
Before 1994, Punggol was home to the majority of the public housing in the area. The Housing Board later started developing a new residential town that came to be Sengkang. The areas’ subtle nods to houses on slits and the seafaring past were incorporated in the neighborhood’s HDB developments.
Today, Fernvale features modern developments and new infrastructure. Connectivity in the area has improved and is set to become even better once Sengkang LRT Line begins operations. It is along the North-East Line and connects the area to the rest of Singapore through Sengkang MRT station. Sengkang bus interchange is the main transport node in Sengkang. It connects Fernvale and the neighboring areas to Sengkang MRT station.
