Family Services Centre has opened! The FSC core work is to provide
casework and counselling services to various arrays of psychosocial problems
ranging from financial difficulties, behavioural problems and parenting and
marital family issues.
addition, Punggol FSC is also running a Community Support Programme called
C.A.P which stands for Come And Play. CAP is a community support
programme developed to reach out to the low-income community residing in the
rental blocks in Punggol. This programme aims towards creating a supportive
network for this community, specifically targeting on the families with young
children, through experiential and goal-directed activities for the children
also like it that Punggol FSC offers a marriage preparation programme for
newlyweds and couples planning for marriage. :)
In view of the haze situation, Punggol 21 CC airconditioned hall is now available for residents to stay overnight. The operating hours are 10.30pm to 8.30am daily.
Please register directly at the community centre.
With effect from Monday, 24 June 2013, SBS Transit will be enhancing their services on the Punggol LRT system to better cater to growing ridership.
A total of 45 additional trips per week will be added to the Punggol East LRT on weekdays from 6.00am to 9.30am. This will reduce waiting time for commuters by up to 2 minutes.
In the evenings, another 24 trips a week will be added from 8.30pm to 9.30pm on weekdays, cutting waiting time by up to 3 minutes.
In addition, another 950 new trips a week will be added to the schedule on both weekdays and weekends.
In total, there will be an increase of 1,019 trips per week, which is a 37.1% increase.
More buses and bus services have been added since the second half of last year to improve public transport in Punggol. But the news that over the next 15 years and beyond, Punggol will be twice the size of today's Ang Mo Kio housing estate, with an almost four-fold increase in number of flats to 100,000, has lead to some anxiety among existing and would-be residents.
There are 7 LRT stations in the western loop which are not opened yet. Currently, the estate is served by 1 MRT station, 8 LRT stations and a bus interchange with 11 trunk services to places such as AMK, Bishan, Serangoon Central, Tampines and Yishun. However, there is no direct bus service from Punggol to CBD area.
Currently, there are about 26,000 flats in Punggol. This number will eventually increase to 100,000, with about 48,000 new units slated for completion by 2016.
