November launch for first batch of HDB flats in new Tengah estate

THE first batch of 1,500 Housing Board flats in the new Tengah estate will be launched in November, Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong announced on Sunday.

He shared the details in a post on his blog, Housing Matters, where he said that the flats will comprise "a good mix across different flat-types".

Over the next few years, there will be a steady stream of flats in Tengah, which is Singapore's first new town in more than 20 years since Punggol, he added. When completed, Tengah will grow to about 700 hectares, which is roughly equivalent to Bishan in size, he added.

As the first "Forest Town", Tengah will see a car-free town centre and lush greenery surrounding the site, which is bounded by the Kranji and Pan-Island expressways, Bukit Batok Road and Brickland Road. It was previously a military training ground.

In his blog post, Mr Wong noted that residents in Tengah will benefit from the future 24-km Jurong Region Line (JRL).

The MRT line will have 24 stations and open in three phases starting from 2026, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan announced on Wednesday.

Mr Wong said four JRL stations will connect the town to the Jurong Innovation District and Jurong Lake District.

"Within Tengah, we are also looking to enhance last-mile connectivity through autonomous vehicles," he added.

"We look forward to working with Singaporeans to make Tengah a home treasured by generations to come, a place where precious memories and community bonds are formed."
