New Housing Estate To Rise From The Sands


Nation Building No Comments

A new Housing Development Board (HDB) town will be emerging from the sands in the rural district of Pasir Ris. Estimated to be more than twice the size of Marine Parade housing estate. Pasir Ris will have a population of more than 150,000 when fully developed. The Pasir Ris new town is bounded by Loyang Halus on the west and Loyang River in the east and Tampines town in the south. A new Tampines Expressway (TPE) will link to other town like Yishun and Woodlands. The Singapore Government recently acquired a large piece of land, of about 20,000 square metres, which belongs to Lee Rubber Company. The construction work will begin in early 1986 where 40,000 units of 3, 4 and 5-room flats are to be built.
