How towns are planned

Our towns are planned with a comprehensive range of facilities to meet the needs of current and future residents. These include housing, shops, schools, libraries, sports facilities, community clubs and parks – all important in ensuring a liveable, self-sufficient town.

The facilities are carefully distributed across each town to ensure good accessibility, supported by an efficient transport network. Most towns also have commercial nodes and other employment centers such as industrial estates and business parks within the town or nearby, to provide job opportunities close to homes.

It borders with Cantonment Road in the east, Kampong Bahru Road in the west, Eu Tong Sen Street, Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) in the south and the New Bridge Road in the north.
