One of the most visited retail and leisure destinations in Singapore, Tampines is home to a large part of the population in the East.
In the coming years, Tampines is poised to grow further with new housing, shopping facilities, more parkland and other amenities at Tampines North.
Transport within Tampines will be augmented, including new rail lines like the Downtown Line that will offer residents and visitors shorter, more comfortable and convenient commutes.
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 centres such as industrial estates and business parks within the town or nearby, to provide job opportunities close to homes.
These facilities and employment centres will be developed according to demand. The detailed planning and implementation of plans for each town is a joint effort of many government agencies.
The new Tampines Town Hub will be Singapore’s first integrated lifestyle hub in the heartlands, bringing retail, sporting and other community services together in one convenient space where residents can gather, interact and bond.
Tampines North is set to become an integral part of Tampines. When fully developed, Tampines North will provide about 21,000 new homes for Singaporeans. Transport and other facilities will accompany the building of Tampines North to ensure a highly liveable and well-connected living environment for residents.
