There will be new development projects to improve the living environment for Potong Pasir residents, the Ministry of National Development (MND) said in a written answer to a query in Parliament yesterday.
For example, the site next to Potong Pasir MRT station is being developed for mixed residential and commercial purposes.
The stretch of Kallang River from Potong Pasir Avenue 1 to St. Andrew’s Junior School, and the drain along Lorong 8 Toa Payoh are being enhanced under PUB’s Active, Beautiful and Clean (ABC) Waters programme.
Residents can also look forward to more sheltered linkways extending from Potong Pasir MRT station. Cycling paths connecting Potong Pasir MRT station to the nearby Kallang Park Connector are also being planned for short distance commute.
Additionally, six precincts in the Potong Pasir Constituency will benefit from the Lift Upgrading Programme (LUP).
As of end 2014, all the new lifts in the six precincts have been completed and put into operation. The remaining works are to shut down the existing lifts which are no longer required, or to upgrade the others. Authorities are targeting to complete this work this year, MND said.
