Aljunied GRC unveils 5-year draft masterplan

Aljunied GRC seems to be gearing up to win hearts of its 250,000 residents ahead of elections due by February 2012.

It unveiled on Friday a five-year draft masterplan, the second such plan to be revealed by Aljunied GRC MPs since the last election in 2006.

Among the highlights is a 13-kilometre park connector. It will improve access to three new MRT stations – Kaki Bukit, Bedok Town Park and Bedok Reservoir – expected to be up in 2017.

More than 90 per cent of the HDB blocks will also get better lift access.

Also on the cards will be the ultra high-speed Internet made possible by plans to cable up homes by next year.

Residents can view and give feedback on the draft masterplan at an exhibition from January 8 to 12 at the open area near Hougang MRT.

The exhibition will move to other Aljunied GRC divisions thereafter to gather more public feedback.

The masterplan will be finalised at the end of March after taking into account all the feedback given.
