Eastern Region of Singapore
Singapore’s Eastern Region is one of the most diverse areas of the island. It is often overlooked however when it comes to finding a place to live in favour of more celebrated areas – Jurong for example. It has many advantages though that mean it should definitely not be ignored: transport, ease of access, parks, the coast and a wide variety of housing options to name just a few.
Improvements and Developments
Bedok, Pasir Ris and Tampines all offer a lot of very affordable public housing, while for those wanting seafront accommodation, there really is not anywhere better – or affordable than those along East Coast Park. Bedok has had a rich mix of both low rise condos and landed property along its reservoir long before it was even thought of at Jurong.
There are going to be considerable improvements to existing mature estates and towns to bring them right in to the 21st century making them an even more attractive proposition to families, young couples and single people alike.
Bedok town centre for example is being redeveloped with a new Bedok Mall, town plaza and hawker centre all bringing in new and exciting F&B and retail options, while the Bedok Adventure Park will get a facelift and brand new sporting facilities. All this will be easier to reach courtesy of the new Integrated Transport HUB (ITH).
Tampines North will undergo similar developments, with a new park joining Sun Plaza and Eco Green parks, and a whole host of new amenities will be built including schools, community commercial centres and the eagerly anticipated Tampines Town Hub.
Pasir Ris is not being forgotten either and residents will welcome the new hawker centre with open arms.
Transport and Connectivity
Not only is the capacity of the existing East West Line (EWL) going to be increased by 20 per cent, the Eastern Region will soon be served by three new MRT lines: The Eastern Regional Line (ERL), Downtown Line (DTL) and Cross Island Lines (CRL) will mean that the vast majority of those living in the region will have an easy walk to their nearest MRT.
Car owners will also benefit from largescale improvements to the road network in the region, most of which will be specifically focussed on current congestion hotspots.
Promoting Growth in the Region
In line with the government’s initiatives to create jobs nearer to people’s homes, new developments – both commercial and industrial, will be created in Loyang Industrial Park, Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park and Changi Business Park, not to mention the development of Changi Airport and the new jobs that will come hand in hand with that.
Not only will these bring in new jobs to the area, the commuter times for residents working so close to home will be greatly reduced.
Finally, the Singapore University of Technology and Design – the newest university in Singapore, and the only one located in the east of the island will not only give residents outstanding cutting edge educational opportunities, it will also give local businesses the chance for second to none collaborations and tie ups.
It is a region that is really coming into its own, with the new investment and developments enhancing the much loved features and characteristics that make it a favourite for those who already call it home.
