Punggol Waterfront Town Opens


Nation Building, Places 19 Comments

Punggol Waterfront Town was an ambitious project to transform what some residents have described as a backwater town into a “New Waterfront Town”. It has been four years in the making and was envisioned by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The town, one of the biggest in Singapore, will house some 23,000 families by the end of 2011. Nicknamed “Venice of Punggol”, it was built at a cost of S$225 million, lets hope the new waterway built by the Housing and Development Board don’t get flooded during the rainy season.
