    1st HDB flats in 'Forest Town' to be launched in 2018

    THE first flats in Singapore's newest Housing Board town, Tengah, will be

    rolled out in 2018.

    These will be among 30,000 eventual public housing units in the new

    "Forest Town" in the west.

    Each of Tengah's five districts, to be developed at different times, will have a distinct identity as they incorporate green elements. The districts are Plantation, Garden, Park, Brickland and Forest Hill.

    Most residents will have bus stops within 300m of their homes. As for the MRT, the Jurong Region Line is estimated to be completed in a decade's time.

    Space has been reserved for possible future transport use, such as providing

    a path for self-driving cars.
