HDB Costa Ris & 'white noise' from MRT trains

Recommended Posts


"White noise" and Costa Ris HDB flats...
In my opinion, I find the way the Blocks of flats that were "laid" out in this development may contribute to having more stacks/flats in this unit - experiencing louder than usual "white noise" from the daily MRT trains passing through.
Maybe, the architect believes in the concept of "shared-responsibility for the noise".It is a pity that there is only ONE MSCP car park i.e. Block 526 to shield the estate from MRT train noise.Too bad and what a pity, this is the only car park. But not enough to shield the entire estate from the mrt train noise.
In many other developments; especially the new condo developments near to Lakeside MRT such as the Caspian and Lakeholmz condo; the blocks are lined-up such that only the NW facing flats "enjoy" the loudest noise i.e. closest and parallel to the MRT track. Even the newer Lakefront residences also share this same concept.
One notable difference between Caspian, Lakeholmz and Lakefront residences are that these are "private" condos. And perhaps: "YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET".
While maybe, HDB Costa Ris is pehaps a public housing? And this is why? the mrt train noise should be shared "equally" amongst as many stacks/flats as possible? Hmmm...
What can I do if I stay there? Really no choice! Have to get used to it. At least the good news or consolation is that it should stop after 12pm on normal days other than weekends or a holiday.

On one side, it is sandwiched by the busy link road: Pasir Ris Drive 8 and on the other boundary is the noisy MRT track. Which do you prefer: The devil or the deep blue sea... for many .. phew! None! Skip this development, totally...
HDB Costa Ris layout of the blocks in the estate; allows more mrt train noise to "affect" more stacks/flats then otherwise in some other developments.

Singapore and it's 6.9M and recently... a possibility of a population of 10M.
Uniquely in Singapore:-
My one "normal" or regular photo that was not taken under paranomic view was able to squeeze in four separate developments!Coco Palms, Costa Ris, Dnest & The Palette
Just the other day, a client asked me; as they were staying in Pasir Ris on which are the better developments in Pasir Ris to buy...
I said, NO! As Pasir Ris to me is one long road i.e. Pasir Ris Drive 1 and it's drainage (road network) is unlike it's neighbour Tampines which has so many roads that can get in and out of it.
Today, this Pasir Ris, is like Punggol but it's internal organs all messed up.....Once a tranquil area is going to be packed like sardines in 2016 and 2017....

Contrary to the design of the blocks within the new HDB estate of Costa Ris;
Lakeholmz & Caspian Condos are equally close to the MRT tracks.
Both Lakeholmz & Caspian condos; since their "rectangular" site length wise is the longest parallel to the tracks; these two developments decided to "sacrifice" a chunk of stacks that are NW facing to try and absorb the majority or the maximum noise for the development.
Of course, one can still hear mrt train noise from blocks 50 and 52 of Caspian. But already quite muted...
I still prefer this "some sacrificial lambs" instead of nearly everyone got "punished" by it.
For other plots of land like Tropical Springs in Simei; their plot of land are luckier as the instead of the length-wise is parallel to the MRT tracks; their small dimension width is instead, parallel to the tracks. And especially for this development; they placed their high-rise multi-storey car parks closest to the MRT tracks. Only 4 stacks are the closet to the mrt tracks. While the rest of the horse-shoe shaped stacks are furthest away from it. Thus, this is a well-though-out minimum sacrificial "site" as compared to the "slaughter of the lambs of the HDB Costa Ris site.

d’nest Just T.O.P. 

Good that each storey’s central rubbish chute (for this development there are two: with an extra recycling bin) are concentrated within it’s own cubicle. Much like one sees in many HDB flats.

Another CDL’s project Coco Palms also most likely will TOP soon. Most likely in early 2018.

Beautifully landscaped.

Workers are putting up the finishing touch.

Nowadays, in my opinion, many of the newer generation trains runs quieter.

Plus at many stretches, LTA installs sound insulation panels.

Thus I believe, noise levels should be a few decibels lower, today.  

The other limitation is often trains need to brake... and perhaps if the trains start to brake at around the vicinity of HDB Costa Ris; this may account for more noise than usual trains just running to and fro.
