3)5 reasons why all eyes are on Tampines North

The East of Singapore may not hold the promise of city’s hustle and bustle, but it is precisely that laidback charm which is loved by visitors and residents alike. One of its latest developments, Tampines North, will have 21,000 new homes, a comprehensive range of facilities and new commercial developments. Read on to find out why the leaf-shaped town – named after its abundant Tampines trees – is a cool place to be at.

1. It will have a self-sufficient hub

Living in Tampines North means being close to a new commercial hub – where residents can indulge in high-end shopping experience or load up on the weekly groceries. It will also have two primary and two secondary schools, and a new community centre.

Developments in Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park, Changi Business Park, Loyang Industrial Park and Changi Airport also means residents in the East would have more job opportunities, allowing them to work closer to home.

There are many bus services out Tampines North, but the completion of the Downtown Line in 2017 will rid the perception of transport as a bugbear.

It will run from Tampines Town Centre and help commuters travel to places like Fort Canning, MacPherson, and Upper Changi.

While the up-and-coming Tampines North will give residents unprecedented convenience and a connection to city life, we are excited to see how it maintains a delicate balance of its family-friendly and old world charm.

3. Cycling Haven

If you’re a fan of getting around on two wheels, a certain pride will come with living in our first cycling town, an example of what the Land Transport Authority hopes to make of Singapore. Under the agency’s National Cycling Plan, the country will have a cycling network of 700km ready by 2030, which includes both park connectors and cycling paths in Housing Board towns.

The estate is also the only one where riders can share footpaths with pedestrians, because of amended Town Council by-laws. But don’t worry about jostling for space as its infrastructure has been tweaked to accommodate both. Residents can expect wider footways and clearly demarcated paths for both cyclists and pedestrians alike.

4. Good food in your backyard

Frasers Hospitality

It is no secret that a slew of popular food establishments are located in the East. From the bustling Fengshan Market & Food Centre to a myriad of eateries in Katong and East Coast Road, there is no better place to get your local fix. Think bak chor mee (minced meat noodles), laksa and old school kaya toast. If you’re lazy to leave Tampines, we hear there are good economical rice stalls and Indian Rojak in the neighbourhood too.

5. Parks, parks and more parks in Tampines North

National Park Board

Tampines Eco Green is an eco-friendly park of 36 hectares, located at the intersection of Tampines Avenue 9 and Tampines Avenue 12. It features freshwater wetlands, natural grasslands and a secondary rainforest – making it the perfect spot for birdwatching and taking in the many species of flora and fauna. Go on a hiking trail, but push or leave bicycles parked at the main entrance as cycling is not allowed.

That is not all. More green lungs are being added to the township in Tampines North with the upcoming two major parks – Boulevard Park and Quarry Park. These will supplement the current collection of smaller parks. Boulevard Park will feature a line of seasonal flowering trees that connects residents to Sun Plaza. Quarry Park will showcase a quarry pond, influenced by Tampines’ past as a sand quarry plant.

RAMPING UP PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Enhancing Our MRT Network

The continued expansion of the MRT network will increase connectivity and cut journey times. The Thomson Line (TSL), which will be opened in phases starting from 2019, will link key areas in the North East such as Lentor and Mayflower with the CBD. The extension of the North East Line to Punggol North will be completed by 2030. Coupled with the addition of more trains, this will improve the accessibility of new growth areas and reduce peak-hour waiting times.

The Cross Island Line (CRL), which will also commence operations around 2030, will connect many areas in the North East, including Ang Mo Kio and Punggol, to the eastern and western parts of Singapore

Better Interchanges and Bus Services

Besides the enhanced rail network, residents in the region will benefit from increased bus capacity under the Bus Service Enhancement Programme, as well as the completion of a new integrated transport hub (ITH) in Hougang and a new bus interchange at Buangkok that will provide seamless movement between the buses, trains and the adjoining commercial developments. The Hougang ITH will include a bus interchange, retail space and residences

BOOSTING SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT

New Cycling Networks

In line with efforts to promote cycling as an alternative mode of transport, the Punggol Eco-Town Cycling Network will be developed to provide a safe and continuous network of cycling paths in Punggol, linking housing, amenities and workplaces together. Besides providing residents with greater transport choice, this will help to reduce carbon emissions and improve the efficiency of the road network. In Hougang, the Defu Industrial Park will be built with cycling in mind, integrated with cycle paths set within a lush, green landscape.
