As part of on-going work to improve the quality of OpenStreetMap data, Mapbox found out a lack of some neighbourhoods and suburbs in Singapore or not correct tags, and we are going to fix this soon as an emergency project. There’s a link to the problem area. There's a link to our Github ticket.

Currently, the following district names from the list are not displayed on the map on any zoom levels:

01 | Cecil (only a street is found), Marina, People's Park

02 | Anson (only a road is found)

04 | Telok Blangah (only a road is found)

05 | Pasir Panjang (only MRT station is found), Hong Leong Garden

07 | Golden Mile

09 | Cairnhill (only a road is found), River Valley(only a road is found)

10 | Ardmore

11 | Watten Estate (only a road is found)

13 | Macpherson(only a road is found), Braddell(only a road is found)

14 | Eunos (only MRT station is found)

15 | Katong, Joo Chiat (only a road is found)

16 | Eastwood(only a road is found)

21 | Ulu Pandan(only a road is found)

23 | Hillview(only a MRT station is found)

24 | Tengah

25 | Kranji(only a road is found), Woodgrove(only a road is found)

26 | Springleaf (only a road is found)


We are going to start fixing this issue as soon as all preparation will be done, and we plan to finish this project till the end of the week.


We are going to edit this area with the help of OSM ID using satellite images provided by Esri, Bing, Maxar and List of Postal Districts. Hashtag #mbx_singapore_districts will be used to mark changeset associated with this project.
