“Apart from existing primary, secondary, and tertiary institutions in the vicinity of Tengah town, new schools will also be built within the town,” stated HDB.
“This includes ACS (Primary), which will be situated within 1km of Parc Meadow @ Tengah when it relocates to the town in 2030.”
Another project, Plantation Verge in the Plantation District, will have a waiting time of more than three and a half years. It will have seven residential blocks that range from 14 to 18 storeys.
“Including these two projects, more than 21,000 flats across 20 BTO projects would have been offered in Tengah since the launch of the first BTO project – Plantation Grove in November 2018,” said HDB.
“This makes up 70% of the approximately 30,000 HDB flats planned for Tengah town.”
The new flats in Tengah are part of an effort to meet the housing needs of Singaporeans. The government is on track to offer 23,000 new flats this year. From 2021 to 2025, a staggering 100,000 new flats will be launched.
The board assured people that it is “committed to ensuring that public housing remains affordable and accessible, enabling Singaporeans to achieve their dream of owning their first home.”
