Tengah Forest Town

During the HDB Award ceremony on 8 September 2016, National Development Minister Lawrence Wong announced plans for Tengah Forest Town, the 24th HDB town after Punggol and Bidadari.Tengah, dubbed as the “Forest Town”, will composed of five housing districts: Plantation, Park, Garden, Brickland, and Forest Hill; each designed with a facet of the town’s identity. Upon completion, the new HDB town is estimated to provide up to 42,000 new homes, of which 12,000 units will be for private housing and 30,000 units for public housing. HDB is looking to launch the first batch of the 30,000 public houses in Plantation district in 2018. Forest Town The unique feature of Tengah revolve around a single concept: Car- free Town Centre. First ever in Singapore, the Town Centre is designed amidst lush parkland with vehicles plying underneath the town centre.Another attraction of Tengah town is the 100m-wide and 5km-long Forest Corridor, which links to the Western and Central Catchment Areas. The Forest Corridor will run along the outside of Forest Hill district and in between Park and Brickland districts.To top everything off, a forest fringe will run around the entire Tengah town, which is about the size of Bishan. More greenery will be woven into the town, from a large central park to community farm ways, the housing estates will be surrounded by gardens, play-areas, and farms. Smart and Sustainable Tengah Tengah is the first town planned with smart technologies town-wide from the onset, making it HDB’s largest smart and sustainable development to date.The development will include:• energy and water conservations features such as smart lighting in common areas, regenerative lifts in blocks, and eco-pedestals in the units;• smart Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System (PWCS) is an automatic enclosed waste collection system that uses high-speed air suction to transport household waste via an underground pipe network to the centralised bin centre; and• Urban Microclimate Multi-physics Integrated Simulation (UM-MIST), which uses 3D city models to simulate the interaction of urban microclimatic conditions. HDB planners will utilise UN-MIST to plan and optimise the layout of the town, such as having more greenery in areas that receive more heat from the sun. Location The 700ha Tengah site is located in the Western Region of Singapore between Jurong West, Bukit Batok, and Choa Chu Kang; and bounded by the Kranji Expressway (KJE), Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), Brickland Road, and Bukit Batok Road. Although Tengah is currently undeveloped, but the main transportation infrastructure are readily available at its door steps. The early residents need not worry about getting around Singapore from Tengah.The completion of the first few batches of public housing in 2022 will coincide with the first phase completion of the Jurong Innovation District, followed by Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail in 2026. Hence Tengah is well situated to offer more living and recreational options to people working in the Jurong Innovation District and the Jurong Lake District.Completion of the upcoming Jurong Region MRT Line in 2025 will further enhance the transport accessibility for Tengah residents. The Jurong Region Line links Tengah to residential areas in Choa Chu Kang, Jurong East, Boon Lay, and West Coast; and connects to the main activity nodes in Jurong West such as Nanyang Technological University, Jurong Industrial estate, including Jurong Island, and the future Jurong Gateway. Superb connectivity allow residents to visit their parents living in the nearby towns and traverse to work in the main activity nodes with ease.Nevertheless, some concerns directed at the potential high noise level from the nearby Tengah Air base in the Northwest direction of the town has been raised. Despite so, Tengah Forest Town has been gaining more attention from potential buyers whom are certain about the growth potential of the new HDB town.(Image Credits (from top): HDB, HDB, LTA)
