carparks to avoid in singapore

We selected 8 Carparks to avoid in Singapore for new drivers.

There are a lot of things that can stress you as you drive along the roads of Singapore. Apart from the regular ERP gantries and the hectic traffic jams along the Pan Island Expressway during peak hours. Both resent and older parking lots may put your driving skills to the test.

We have discovered 8 parking lots that are known to be painfully small and make maneuvering into the parking space a headache for drivers. Due to lack of enough resources, we could not accurately measure every parking lot to determine which is the smallest.

To compensate for that, we have jotted down a list of car parks that are known to be notoriously narrow. However, even with their reputation of being cramped, these parking lots are the most frequented by drivers. One reason for this is because shopping malls or office buildings own most of these car parks.

Here are the 8 carparks to avoid if you are a P-Plate driver.

 

1. Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

Even though it is one of the largest hospitals in Singapore, Tan Tock Hospital has one of the worst parking lots in Singapore. Even though the basement parking lot isn’t that bad, the road leading to the exit is very narrow. You have to be very cautious while driving to avoid scratching your car to the wall.

 

2. Liang Court.

It is considered by some as the worst parking lot in Singapore. Liang Court is one of the toughest parking lots to navigate through. It has narrow lanes and a number of sharp corners. It may be very difficult to drive a large SUV in this parking lot, especially if you are not a skilled driver.

 

3. East Point Mall.

It is developed by the far east organization the East Point mall is located in Simei, Singapore. Even though it was recently renovated the parking lot still has a reputation of being one of the narrowest in Singapore.

It is tough to find a parking space in the basement because there are two very sharp corners on the ramp that leads to the upper parking level.

 

4. Burlington Square.

Completed in 1998, Burlington square has one of the safest but challenging parking lots to maneuver through. Even with the numerous signs on the wall of the parking lot, most drivers find it challenging to move around.

The parking lot has every type of obstacle from a lot of pillars, sharp corners to very narrow parking lots. You need to drive cautiously in this parking lot to avoid accidents with other motorists.

 

 

5. Bukit Timah Shopping Center.

Construction of the 22-floor building was finished in 1981. The building houses a mall and other businesses. Even though it one of the busiest buildings in Singapore their parking is one of the most hectic.

Two cars can barely pass or ever take each other when one is going to the upper parking levels and another coming down. Apart from that, the turn that leads into the exit ramp is very narrow, and a sharp 90-degree corner forces drivers to make several sharp turns before they can exit.
