SINGAPORE: Plans for remaking Punggol are on track.

Senior Minister of State for National Development, Grace Fu, said as of June 1, HDB has completed almost 18,000 residential units in Punggol.

Another 9,400 are under construction.

Subject to demand, HDB is on track to complete 35,000 flats by the end of 2015.

This will make Punggol similar in size to Toa Payoh.

Ms Fu was speaking at the Punggol, Remaking our Heartlands Exhibition at HDB Hub.

She said as Punggol's population attains critical mass, new facilities can and will come on board.

The first mixed commercial-cum-residential development site at the Town Centre will be launched in the second-half of this year.

And a premium HDB project will be launched later this month, boasting waterfront living an eco-friendly features.

Ms Fu stressed that it's also important for a new town like Punggol, to foster its identity by heightening awareness of its rich heritage, which dates back to the early days of Singapore.

Grassroots leaders are working together with government agencies to develop educational panels along the Punggol Waterway, highlighting various aspects of Punggol's developments, both past and present.

For example, the panels along the Heartwave Wall, near Punggol MRT station, will depict the story of Punggol's evolution and its significant development milestones.

The Heritage Trail along Punggol Road will showcase the history of the road, together with a focus on the flora and fauna of old and present Punggol.
