TAMPINES – One of the most visited retail and leisure destinations in Singapore, Tampines is home to a large part of the population in the East. In the coming years, Tampines is poised to grow further with new housing, shopping facilities, more parkland and other amenities at Tampines North. Transport within Tampines will be augmented, including new rail lines like the Downtown Line that will offer residents and visitors shorter, more comfortable and convenient commutes.


Tampines North is the fresh face of a well-developed area. Built as an extension of Tampines, the town will feature a new linear park linking it to the existing Tampines Eco Green and Sun Plaza parks. Tampines North will also have a spread of amenities including a commercial centre, community club and primary and secondary schools with an estimated 21,000 dwelling units spread across 240 hectares, will be added to the existing Tampines Town with new parks, seamless pedestrian and cycling network

A Boulevard Park — featuring a stretch lined with seasonal flowering trees — will run through the estate, providing residents with a seamless connection from Sun Plaza Park to Sungei Api Api. Community spaces and facilities such as childcare centres will be located along the park.

A second major park, Quarry Park, will also be created and could feature a quarry pond, inspired by Tampines’ history as a sand quarry site. Apart from the two major parks, smaller ones will be scattered across the estate, and linked to one another by a pedestrian and cycling network weaving through the housing districts.

A new landmark mixed development, with mixed commercial and residential use as well as a bus interchange, will be a focal point for residents in Tampines North. The Tampines North Hub could be integrated with a plaza square and a green arcade, A landbridge will also mark the gateway into Tampines Town, which will consist of 90,000 units with the inclusion of Tampines North.

This bridge will link the Quarry Park to Sun Plaza and Boulevard Park, allowing Tampines North residents to connect with the rest of Tampines Town


Like the existing residential areas, Tampines North will boast an extensive suite of supporting amenities including schools, healthcare, community, sports and recreation facilities. Amenities in the existing towns will continue to be enhanced. For example, the much anticipated Tampines Town Hub will breathe fresh life into Tampines Regional Centre. Changi General Hospital is being expanded to add more beds and medical facilities to serve residents in the East. Pasir Ris will see a much welcomed hawker centre.


The East Region will benefit from significant improvements to public transport and roads, with new MRT connections cutting journey times and road improvements to reduce traffic congestion and improve connectivity between and within towns. New cycling routes will also encourage sustainable transport among the public.

The East West MRT line (EWL) serving the East Region is set to be joined by three new MRT lines in the future, the Downtown Line (DTL), the Eastern Regional Line (ERL) and the Cross Island Line (CRL). Together the three new MRT lines will ensure that the majority of East Region residents will have access to MRT Stations within walking distance from their homes.The EWL signalling system will also be upgraded by 2018 to allow six trains every ten minutes instead of five; a 20-percent increase in capacity.


The DTL will extend eastwards to complement the EWL to the city centre, increasing East Region residents’ accessibility to public transport and providing relief to the existing EWL capacity. The DTL station at Tampines town centre will be part of a future Integrated Transport Hub (ITH) which will include a bus interchange, similar to the ITH under construction in Bedok. In the longer term, a third ITH is planned for Pasir Ris. In addition, the region will continue to benefit from the Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP).


As part of URA’s plans to bring jobs closer to home, Tampines was developed as a regional centre, providing residents with more office and retail jobs in their neighbourhood. The East is also home to major employment hubs like Changi Business Park and other industrial areas as well as Changi Airport. More jobs will continue to be created in the East through the development of new job centres across the region. Together with new rail lines being implemented like the Downtown Line, residents will also be better connected to their workplaces.


New industrial and commercial developments are set to open in Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park, Changi Business Park, Loyang Industrial Park and Changi Airport. These developments will create a range of additional jobs, meaning residents will be able to work closer to their homes and enjoy reduced commuting times.


Changi Business Park will continue its expansion as a vibrant business park and hub for employment. At the same time, the upcoming Singapore University Of Technology And Design will offer potential tie-ups and collaborations with businesses in the park, while providing leading-edge educational opportunities.


The opening of Project Jewel and Terminal 4 in Changi Airport will provide thousands of attractive new job opportunities. Project Jewel will be the next exciting new addition to Changi Airport since Terminal 3. It will allow the expansion of Terminal 1 while also introducing new attractions and exciting retail choices to travellers transiting at Changi Airport, thereby anchoring Changi Airport as a global air-hub.

The attractions will also be open to the public and bring new leisure, retail and F&B choices for residents in the East and the rest of Singapore. The new Terminal 4, like the other existing terminals, will be a full service terminal, offering attractive aviation related jobs to Singaporeans while expanding Changi Airport’s passenger handling capacity.


The East has long been associated with an array of landmark parks and green spaces such as East Coast Park, Pasir Ris Park, Bedok Reservoir Park and Changi Beach Park. To make East Region’s green offerings accessible to more residents, more land has been safeguarded for new neighbourhood parks and park connectors.


The East Region will boast three expanded intra-town cycling routes at Tampines, Pasir Ris and Bedok. These routes will provide a convenient and continuous network of cycling paths within the three towns, linking housing, amenities, and work places, as well as providing residents with more transport choices. There will also be cycling routes to allow cyclists to move between towns and major parks such as East Coast Park, Pasir Ris Park and Bedok Reservoir Park.


As part of the Remaking Our Heartland (ROH) scheme by HDB, an Outdoor Play Corridor will be implemented between Bedok Reservoir and East Coast Park. A total of 30 km of new park connectors will also be built across the East Region.
