Hkgspotter1, Singapore is a little too small, space too precious to do/build things just so that we can show our neighbours what we have. There's always a strategic reason for doing certain things.
Anyway, I am surprised to see some Singaporeans openly talking about and describing the location of these runways in a public forum. Next, perhaps some smart alec will provide the grids for its location on a.net.... very interesting.

Everybody knows that they are there. They are so obvious and to be honest, it really would not very difficult to go to a map - identify stretches of roads which are 2kms long and get the co-ordinates whoever you are! Public knowledge I am afraid especially since the ECP has the centre markings painted on!
Anyway, my interest was sparked since I just saw quite a few pictures of aircraft in Germany and Sweden operating from roads and I was wondering if the same has ever happened here. Somebody just sent me some pics of A4s on an exercise on a road runway but not sure which one it is....

The Lim Chu Kang Rd is pictured on map sites on the web. Easily noticable by it's long, straight strench. Lim Chu Kang terminal (which appears to be a parking ramp) is also outlined and named, parallelling the road to the north end of the road. I don't see what is so secretive about the place.
