My Waterway@Punggol, Singapore
Singapore’s first man-made waterway, envisioned as the River of Life for the Punggol Town community to celebrate the idea of “Green Living by the Waters.”
THE PROJECT OBJECTIVES
My Waterway@Punggol is Singapore’s longest man-made waterway which meanders through Punggol Town and brings water closer to homes, opening up opportunities for waterfront living and water-based recreational activities. It reinforces the Green Living by the Waters theme, acting as the “green and blue spine” linking the Punggol-Serangoon reservoirs.
