Singapore – Bukit Batok Canal poised to become a Community Focal Point (17 January 2015)

One of PUB’s four ABC (Active, Beautiful & Clean) Waters projects to commence in 2015

Residents of Bukit Batok can soon look forward to a new community space when a 230-metre stretch of the Bukit Batok Canal is given a facelift under PUB’s Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) programme.

Located between Bukit Batok West Ave 2 and 4, ABC Waters @ Bukit Batok Canal will transform the neighbourhood into a vibrant communal space while allowing residents to get close to and better appreciate the waterway. The project also complements the Neighbourhood Renewal Programme upstream of the canal to provide an enhanced living environment for residents.

As part of the makeover, rain gardens will be incorporated along the canal bank to detain and cleanse rainwater runoff before discharging the water into the canal.  The rain gardens also promote biodiversity, while beautifying the surrounding landscape.  In addition, creepers along the canal walls and new plantings will give the area an aesthetical boost while timber seats along the waterway allow residents to enjoy the cool breeze by the waterway.
