It is part of Singapore’s Master Plan for a new gateway that will take urban waterfront living into the next era and beyond. Concepts and ideas have been proposed and will form the groundwork for this mega project. Development will begin in phases and will start earlier than scheduled, in just 5 to 10 years’ time.
In 2025, the Circle Line will be completed with the opening of Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward Road stations. Commuters will be able to enjoy faster access from areas such as Kent Ridge and Haw Par Villa to the CBD and Marina Bay area.
The national monument, St James Power Station, will be refurbished into an office complex.
After the success of Marina Bay as our first city reservoir, a new one could be developed for the Greater Southern Waterfront. Canals could also be planned to enhance the waterfront appeal of the area.
Anchored to be part of the Southern Gateway for Asia, Pulau Brani will provide exciting opportunities to develop new tourism attractions. A green corridor that links Labrador Park, Berlayer Creek and Mount Faber to Pulau Brani may be created and be connected to Gardens by the Bay and the island-wide green network.
Taking advantage of beautiful sea views, a scenic continuous waterfront promenade will link places of interest along the Greater Southern Waterfront.
More parks and eco-corridors could be planned to seamlessly connect from one park to another.
The new Pasir Panjang Linear Park will link West Coast Park to Labrador Nature Reserve.
Singapore will build its largest underground substation by 2025, freeing up more than three hectares of land. A commercial development will be built on top of it.
The remaining land area will be used for lifestyle and other purposes. The upcoming Pasir Panjang Linear Park will connect West Coast Park to Labrador Nature Reserve, offering park users a glimpse of the Power District up close. Future connections will also link up places of interest from the waterfront to the hilltops, allowing visitors to enjoy a distinctive recreational experience.
