Foreign Minister George Yeo said the temporary dormitory proposal at Burghley Drive, where Serangoon Garden Technical School used to be located, is at a preliminary stage.
Mr Yeo, who is also an Aljunied GRC MP, was speaking to Serangoon Garden residents at a dialogue on Wednesday.
He said the residents’ concerns are legitimate and he will pass their feedback to the Ministry of National Development and Urban Renewal Authority which will be making the final decision.
Mr Yeo added that if he were a resident there, he would share the same concerns on security, congestion and traffic issues.
