An artist's impression of what Simpang might look like when developed

Simpang (Chinese: 新邦; pinyin: Xīnbāng), is a planning area located in the North Region of Singapore. The word Simpang means corner in Malay. It is situated north of Yishun, east of Sembawang and west of Seletar. Pulau Seletar is classified under Simpang planning area.

Simpang is currently a swamp area which is used by the Singapore Armed Forces as a training ground since the early 1996, after the plan of developing a "Simpang New Town" was rejected. There are plans for it to be converted into a high-density housing estate.
