Serangoon residents enjoy a good range of amenities and convenient transport connections. Over the next few years, Serangoon will offer residents better facilities, more recreational options and improved transport connectivity. The growth of the Serangoon sub-regional centre will also bring in new job opportunities.
Housing: Improving lives with better neighbourhoods
Potential home owners continue to see Serangoon as an attractive choice because of its central location and comprehensive range of amenities. Estate upgrading projects have improved the physical environment in areas such as Braddell Heights and Seletar Hills. More residential sites will be made available for development in Serangoon progressively, while the following projects will further enhance the living environment for residents:
• Provision of an integrated daycare facility and family medicine centre at Serangoon Central
• The newly-completed Greenwich V, a new
retail destination offering fresh shopping and dining alternatives
• Estate upgrading for the Bartley neighbourhood
Leisure: Hangouts to relax and recharge
Residents in Serangoon have easy access to several major parks in other north-eastern estates via the existing park connectors, including Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park via Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5. For green spaces closer to home, residents can look to the various neighbourhood parks and precinct parks in convenient locations within their housing estates. In the coming years, residents will be able to add a few more places to their list of favourite hangouts:
• The 17ha Serangoon North linear park along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5
• A new plaza and a new pedestrian mall at Serangoon Central, built in tandem with future developments to create vibrant spaces for community activities and improve pedestrian linkages within the town centre
Transport: Smoother rides, faster connections
Travelling within Serangoon and to other parts of Singapore will be faster and more convenient with the following enhancements to the roads and public transport services, including:
• Widening of Upper Paya Lebar Road to ease the peak- hour traffic congestion heading towards Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and Pan-Island Expressway
• Improvements to the road and junction at Serangoon Avenue 2
Economy: More jobs near home
With the development of new offices at Serangoon Central in future and new industrial developments at Serangoon North, residents of Serangoon can soon expect more opportunities to take up jobs near home and save on commuting time. Going home after a hard day’s work will only mean a short walk or a quick bus ride, and travelling into the city to meet up with friends is also easy via Serangoon MRT station, an interchange station for the North-East Line and Circle Line.
Identity: The simple pleasures of Serangoon Garden
Serangoon Garden will be recognised as an identity node to retain its unique character and laid-back charm. Its low-rise landscape is the perfect complement to the variety of local food treasures here, creating a village ambience that distinguishes it from other food hangouts. To provide a more memorable experience in this popular enclave and protect its unique character, we will retain Serangoon Garden Circus as a local landmark and formulate street block plans to guide future improvement and development of the area.
