Upgraded waterfront for Pasir Ris residents by 2015

Come 2015, Pasir Ris residents will have an upgraded waterfront right at their doorstep when nearly one kilometre of the town’s two waterways, Sungei Api Api and Sungei Tampines, will be spruced up.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean officiated the groundbreaking ceremony for the water project on Sunday evening.

Located between Tampines Expressway and Pasir Ris Drive 3, the new waterway will have rain gardens as well as additional plantings.

Visitors can also expect signage about the flora and fauna which will be installed along the waterfront.

The upgrading is part of water agency PUB’s Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters Programme to transform Singapore’s water bodies.

Over 100 potential locations have been identified for implementation over the next 20 to 30 years.
