Buangkok, is a neighbourhood located in north eastern Singapore. Whilst its boundaries are vague, the neighbourhood is roughly spread across the Trafalgar and Compassvale subzones of the Hougang and Sengkang Planning Areas respectively, as designated by the URA.Buangkok was once filled and overcrowded by kampongs and villages that have been demolished just in 2009, with Kampong Lorong Buangkok the only remaining village in the vicinity.EtymologyThe namesake road Lorong Buangkok was named Buangkok, meaning "united", after the rubber plantation by the settlers. In 1967, a track off Lorong Buangkok was named Lorong Buangkok Kechil.HistoryChinese farmers settled on the land in this vicinity in the early twentieth century. The land belonged partly to the state and partly to Singapore United Rubber Plantation Limited.When Sengkang was developed in the late 1990s, a large section of Lorong Buangkok was removed for the development of the new town. Today, Lorong Buangkok is truncated into two sections — one located at the west end of Buangkok with its entrance near Yio Chu Kang Road, and the other much shorter section located within Sengkang near Punggol Road.Public housing estatesThe public housing estates in Buangkok include a cluster of apartment blocks at Buangkok Link in the northern part of Hougang and the southern part of Compassvale in Sengkang.
