Punggol Waterway Set to Complete in 2010

Punggol Waterway Progresses into Next Phase and Set to Complete Next Year

The development of the Punggol Waterway is progressing smoothly into the next phase. HDB has awarded the construction of the second part (comprising 1.8km) of the 4.2 km waterway to Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering Contractor (Pte) Ltd for S$58.9 million. The first part of the waterway (comprising 2.4km) was also awarded to Koh Brothers in January this year.

Since the groundbreaking ceremony held in April this year, works on the waterway are progressing well. With the award of the construction works for Part 2 of the Waterway, HDB is committed to complete the Waterway, which is a key element to realise the Remarking Our Heartland plans for Punggol 21+, on schedule by end-2010.

Besides engineering works on the remaining 1.8 km of the waterway, a key component of Part 2 of the Punggol Waterway works will see the construction of a 10 m promenade on both sides of the Waterway - bringing nearer to the residents the reality of a leisure stroll and activities along the waterway when works are completed.

The vision of Punggol as a Waterfront Town is slowly but certainly taking shape. Besides enabling fun-filled and exciting recreational activities such as water sports in the heart of Punggol Town, the Waterway sets the stage for 21,000 homes that will eventually be built along it in an environment nestled by weaving water and lush greenery.

There's still quite a long way to go for the Punggol Waterway. There's still a fair bit of area need to be dug up on Site 2, 3, 5 and they have not even started moving on 6 yet and that is the one that links up the two river.

Site 1 I must say is moving fairly fast though as they are starting to lay concrete onto the river bed.

The weather also doesn't help with the last couple of days constantly raining away. Hard for the workers to work.
