My Waterway@Punggol to open from Oct 23

Singapore’s longest man-made waterway will be open to visitors from October 23.

The 4.2 kilometre-long My Waterway@Punggol features five bridges, bringing visitors closer to the water.

Punggol waterway was created out of barren land, and connects Punggol Reservoir to Serangoon Reservoir.

But the area has been given a facelift, making it a scenic spot for a slew of leisure activities.

Visitors can relive old memories of Punggol along the way, by stopping at this rest stop, which was an old bus stop in the area.

As the waterway is man-made, the challenge for the Housing & Development Board was how to keep the waterway clean and teeming with life.

This is done through a series of eco features – such as an eco-drain that cleanses surface run-off water before it is discharged into the waterway.

Aerators have also been installed to enhance the water quality.
