|• Hokkien POJ||Bān-kok|
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.
Although still officially named "Trafalgar", the more conventional name, "Buangkok", still remains in popular use even to this day.
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.
