The Housing Board plans to launch in November the first batch of HDB flats in Tengah, Singapore’s newest town in over 20 years, revealed National Development Minister Lawrence Wong.

“It will be a substantial offering of around 1,500 flats, with a good mix across different flat-types,” he wrote on his blog on Sunday (13 May).

“Over the next few years, we will continue to have a steady stream of Tengah flats. When completed, Tengah Town will grow to about 700 hectares, roughly equivalent to Bishan in size.”

The government previously announced that up to 42,000 new homes will be built in Tengah, which is expected to be fully developed in 20 years, with HDB flats accounting for more than 70 percent of the housing supply.

Wong shared that the new town will be unique as it has been conceptualised as the first “Forest Town” in Singapore.

“Tengah will be integrated with the surrounding greenery and rich biodiversity, and feature a car-free town centre. It will be a green, car-lite, and pedestrian-friendly town.”

“With the recent announcement of the 24km Jurong Region Line (JRL), residents in Tengah can also look forward to excellent connectivity, with four stations connecting the town to Jurong Innovation District, Jurong Lake District and beyond,” Wong said.

The town’s upcoming JRL stations consist of Tengah, Hong Kah, Tengah Plantation and Tengah Park, which are anticipated to start operating by 2026.

“Within Tengah, we are also looking to enhance last-mile connectivity through autonomous vehicles,” he added.
