New HDB flats, commercial facilities to be built next to Kembangan MRT station

New HDB flats, commercial facilities to be built next to Kembangan MRT station


“There are plans to provide plaza spaces for residents’ recreational activities, and these could serve as additional activity areas for events organised by the People’s Association,” said HDB.

A planned jogging path, approximately 1.5 times longer than the current one, will link the neighbourhood and linear parks.

Also in the works are a dedicated cycling path along Jalan Kembangan and an enhanced Siglap Park Connector, giving cyclists better access to East Coast Park and Bedok Reservoir

As for commercial facilities, HDB noted that a supermarket, eating house and shops may be provided in the proposed development.

A preschool, residents’ network centre, and a kidney dialysis centre and outpatient healthcare facility may also be introduced as part of the facilities, it said.

To improve access to public transport, a sheltered linkway connecting the new development to Kembangan MRT station may be built.

The existing bus stop along Jalan Kembangan could also be upgraded to “incorporate a bus bay where buses can call at the bus stop without obstructing traffic along the road”, said HDB.

“These improvements will enable residents to access public transport nodes more conveniently.”


HDB said that measures will be put in place to reduce inconveniences stemming from the construction, such as installing interim covered linkways from Kembangan MRT station to Block 110 to 116.

It added that traffic wardens will also be placed to manage the incoming and outgoing construction traffic, as well as having holding areas in the worksite “to contain the construction vehicles so that they do not spill out onto public roads”.

High hoardings integrated with noise barriers will be installed to reduce construction noise and dust, HDB said, adding that site activities will be avoided in early mornings or late nights, with construction noise levels to be monitored.
