SINGAPORE - HDB today unveiled the next chapter of Punggol's development with a plan expected to take Punggol through the next five to 15 years and beyond.

Notably, Punggol's next phase of development will see seven signature waterfront housing districts, each with its own distinct character, created to give residents a stronger sense of attachment to their neighbourhoods.

This was announced by National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan at the HDB Awards ceremony.

The districts to be developed are Waterway East and Waterway West, which are currently already under development, and new areas at Northshore, Matilda, Punggol Point, Crescent and Canal districts.

In addition, HPB is looking into developing the area's town centre into a new "Punggol Downtown" - which will feature more civic spaces such as a town square and waterfront market village.

Residents can also look forward to more recreational spaces and commercial amenities such as a new sports complex, horse riding centre, community club and hawker centre.

As Punggol urbanises and develops, HPB said it will be building more green parks and green corridors to be integrated with the waterfront promenades.

The existing My Waterway@Punggol and the Punggol Waterway Park will be enhanced, with green spaces expanding towards the north.

Collectively, these open spaces - in which the town centre will be located - will form the "Green Heart" of Punggol, while green linear corridors spreading out from the Green Heart will be available for recreational use such as jogging, cycling and brisk walking.

As the town's population is expected to grow, Punggol's transport infrastructure is to be enhanced, with cycling tracks to be built in tandem with new roads to encourage clean commute.

"As HDB's first eco-town, Punggol continues to serve as a good platform for the pursuit of green initiatives and sustainable solutions," Mr Khaw said.

This is also in line with the Government roadmap's second thrust to develop sustainable towns.

More details will be available closer to the actual launches, Mr Khaw said.
