ONE is a lonely number, and it is the reason motorists in Punggol are being driven mad.

The new town has just one petrol station and long, snaking queues are common, especially during the weekends.

The Singapore Petroleum Centre (SPC) station at the junction of Punggol Central Road and Edgefield Plains caters to 82,000 residents.

Neighbouring new town Sengkang has three petrol stations.

Staff at the Punggol petrol station told The Sunday Times that on busy days, as many as 10 cars line the road leading up to it, despite there being no huge discounts.

Said bank manager Serena Lee: 'I avoid going there on weekends and Monday mornings. I go at night, or during non-peak hours.'
